National Philanthropic Trust, a donor-advised-fund sponsor, has added four impact investments to its DAF investment menu, offering donors options that have both social and financial returns.
“These new investments will offer our donors another way to increase their charitable impact,” Eileen Heisman, NPT’s president and chief executive, said in a statement. “We want to honor our donors’ desire to create a double bottom line by investing their donor-advised fund assets to generate a social and financial return.”
NPT, founded in 1996, reported that it currently manages $4.3 billion in charitable assets and has made more than 178,000 grants totaling $4.3 billion to charities around the world.
The organization annually publishes the Donor-Advised Fund Report, and last year, published HistoryofGiving.org, a narrative about the past 500 years of philanthropy, including rarely accessed images, videos and documents.
The new investments are all iShares exchange-traded funds.
