Our Donor-Advised Fund
Advance Change Fund
For me, the Amalgamated Foundation has been much more than a donor-advised fund provider. They have been a full-spectrum partner in realizing and expanding the vision of my philanthropy, my work as a filmmaker, and my own non-profit initiatives.
We are proud to join the community of individuals and organizations that the Amalgamated Foundation is bringing together to advance social change.
First and foremost, I consider myself an activist and entrepreneur. The Amalgamated Foundation is like a tool box for my emerging work as a grantmaker.
When we set up a Charitable Remainder Trust we needed a beneficiary that could support a range of interests -- democracy, health care access, and global LGBTQI human rights. Our Advance Change Fund at Amalgamated will be a trusted steward of the Trust and our entire estate.
As chair of the Patriotic Millionaires, I work to confront the destabilizing concentration of wealth and power in America. Given our shared commitment and values, the Amalgamated Foundation is an ideal home for my philanthropy.
