An SECF Public Policy Webinar:
Government Request for Information on
Private Foundation Use of Donor-Advised Funds

Wednesday, February 21, 2018 · 2:00pm – 2:30pm (ET)

Between now and March 5, the Treasury Department is seeking comments from private foundations on their use of donor-advised funds. These comments may end up influencing future proposed regulations on DAFs, making it important that funders are heard now. On Wednesday, February 21, SECF will host a webinar to brief members on this request for information and what foundations can do in response.

Joining us will be Sandra Swirski, a partner at the Washington advocacy firm Urban Swirski & Associates, who has consulted SECF on public policy for the past year. If your private foundation uses donor-advised funds in its work, you won’t want to miss this presentation.

Note: This webinar is focused on one issue addressed in Section 6 of this IRS notice. The discussion will be limited to the request for information on the use of donor-advised funds by private foundations. Other issues mentioned in that notice will not be discussed; please contact the SECF staff if you have questions about these issues.

Questions? For questions relating to this event or relating to public policy, please contact Jaci Bertrand, SECF’s director of member engagement, at (404) 524-0911 or
