This meeting is being hosted by the Charities and Not-for-Profit Law Section.

Speaker(s): Kate Bake-Paterson, Associate Counsel at DLA Piper

Time: Thursday, May 20, 2021, 10:00am - 11:30am (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

You likely have all heard of Donor Advised Funds (DAFs), but do you understand the legal implications of creating a DAF and how a DAF can be incorporated into a donor’s planned giving? In this session, we will work through a DAF case study following the life and death of a donor, beginning with a donor wanting to establish a DAF as a planned giving vehicle through to her death (and beyond). Of interest to charities and professional advisors alike, we will discuss issues such as:

  • what a DAF is, at law;
  • the implications of creating a DAF both for the donor and for the charity that might otherwise have been receiving direct gifts from the donor;
  • how donors and charities work with DAFs;
  • what happens upon the death of a donor, among others.

Territorial Acknowledgement
This event will be broadcast from the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish and Musqueam First Nations. We encourage members to explore the rich history and knowledge of Indigenous people, and to continue learning about their experience in Canada past and present.
