Did you know that your personality type matters when it comes to supporting community causes? Your “social impact personality type” is especially important as you gear up to structure your donor-advised fund at the community foundation. A donor-advised fund is a terrific vehicle to help you and your family organize gifts to charities, whether you identify as an “investor,” a “connector,” or an “activator.”
If you need a quick refresher on donor advised funds: they are the fastest growing philanthropic planning vehicle in today’s wealth management marketplace. Donor advised funds allow an individual or family to make a tax-deductible transfer that qualifies as a charitable contribution, and then later recommend gifts to charities from the fund when the time is right.
The bottom line is: when you establish a donor-advised fund at the Community Foundation, you know you are setting up your charitable giving to make the biggest impact by supporting the causes you love the most.
So how does personality fit into the equation? Read through the 3 social impact personality types below and decide which one fits you best. Underneath each type you can learn how a donor advised fund can be used to align your personal philanthropy with your social impact personality!
