The Story

The Accelerating Charitable Efforts Act, introduced by two key U.S. Senators, seeks to revamp federal law so that donors and foundations have new incentives to make sure gifts to donor-advised funds and in foundation endowments don’t pile up but flow swiftly to nonprofits in need.
Join us for a free online briefing to learn why:

  • Proponents want change — including a chance to hear directly from a Giving Pledge donor, a co-creator of the legislation, and a nonprofit that is backing the idea.
  • Leaders of several major foundation and nonprofit associations fear the law will dampen donations.
To better understand one of the most consequential debates about charitable giving policy in years, sign up to join this conversation, moderated by the Chronicle’s editor, Stacy Palmer, on Thursday, September 9, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.
