Contentions about the role of Donor-advised funds in the philanthropic world, were aired last week at Boston College Law School Forum on Philanthropy and the Public Good.
"Congressional calls to force people with donor-advised funds to distribute money to charity speedily have exposed fault lines among nonprofit leaders over what constitutes a charity and whether the federal government should draft tax policies that treat classes of nonprofits differently.
"Proponents of increased regulation and fans of keeping the status quo squared off Friday at a forum held by the Boston College Law School Forum on Philanthropy and the Public Good. The event was organized by Ray Madoff, professor at Boston College Law School and a frequent critic of donor-advised funds."--Alex Daniels, The Chronicle of Philanthropy
