The Blackbaud Giving Fund, a South Carolina-based donor-advised fund (DAF), has announced that it disbursed more than $682 million in 2022, an 8 percent year-over-year increase.
Established in 2020, the Blackbaud Giving Fund is already among the 10 largest DAFs in the United States and has awarded more than $1.6 billion since 2020. In 2022, more than 582,000 donors directed gifts through the fund to more than 139,000 nonprofits in America and around the world, in support of organizations working in areas such as civil rights, education, human services, agriculture, health initiatives, and the arts.
“The fund exists to bring donors and nonprofits together with an efficient and secure donation process to power philanthropic efforts,” said Blackbaud Giving Fund executive director Matt Nash. “The increase in average donation amounts shows us that people continue to value the work nonprofits do, so we will continue to support their efforts and prioritize safe and efficient disbursements to nonprofits.”
