David Selakovic Exercises Philanthropy Through Selacorp's Donor-Advised Funds Program

SINGAPORE -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/14 -- Donor-advised funds in the United States reached a new record number for the year of 2013 with an estimated total amount of $45 billion, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

The principle behind it is fairly straightforward: Community foundations and for-profit companies provide funds in the form of charitable giving accounts that are easily accessible and often less expensive than establishing a private foundation. Donors decide exactly how their monetary contribution should be invested, before the money is given to a charity of their choice, while the sponsoring organization takes care of due diligence and record keeping.
