    Brush up on the ins and outs of donor-advised funds.  How are they alike?  Where do they differ?  What questions might a donor ask when evaluating fund options?  What can and can't they be used for?  This 'nuts and bolts' overview will be provided by Molly Bittner of the Richmond Community Foundation and will be followed by a panel of donors who will share their perspectives on why they chose to use a donor-advised fund and how it fits into their philanthropic plan.

    To anyone under the age of 50, high rates of inflation are something to be read about in history books. Those over 50 are likely to have personal remembrances of long gas lines and double-digit home mortgage interest rates. With inflation rates currently at forty-year highs, many charitable gift planners and professional advisors are scrambling to determine how these 

    higher inflation rates will impact both their organizations/practices and their donors/clients.

    This session will cover a basic economics lesson on how inflation works, how inflation affects philanthropy in general, and how gift planners and advisors can leverage higher inflation rates for the benefit of their donors/clients.
