Donor advised funds are the fastest growing giving vehicle in the charitable sector, but many Development professionals struggle to understand them.


Demystify donor advised funds with Maria Vickroy-Peralta of the San Francisco Foundation and your Development colleagues. Starting with the basics, Maria will explain donor advised funds and why they have become so popular. Learn how to utilize donor advised funds to help your organization meet its goals.  Understand why donors are attracted to this new giving option, and how to build relationships and steward donors based on their philanthropic passions and goals. 




Presented by Maria Vickroy-Peralta



Maria Vickroy-Peralta is Director of Business Development at The San Francisco Foundation. She works with individuals, families, private foundations, and corporations to set up donor-advised funds at the Foundation and build philanthropy across the Bay Area. A San Francisco native and lifelong Bay Area resident, Maria previously worked in the banking sector and held senior development roles with St. Dominic’s Catholic Church, Santa Clara University’s Jesuit School of Theology, and the Dominican Friars of the Western Province.
