It's a real pleasure working with such a dedicated team aligned to helping people give, regardless of what causes or charities they want to support. Thanks to everyone

Will give it a read. Interested to see if it speaks to public confusion. Some thoughtful folks in BC remain concerned about how the public will learn to differentiate benefit corps from non-profits and charities now that our province has introduced similar legislation.

Agreed. I will look more closely at the state settlement context (forced 'philanthropy';). I partly place my faith for resolution in developing the mindset of the "social entrepreneur" who is meant to factor in negative externalities as a blemish and depreciation of profit/value

Agreed. Not hypothetical at all. I'm most curious about how the public would respond. More yay than nay? In my experience, it takes a couple generations before wealthy family philanthropy shifts to focus on problems related to where they originally made their $.

Where donations come from can become a sensitive, emotive, and very interesting topic. If Sackler money was going towards causes directly related to the opioid crisis, what would we, the public, think?

As Paul Schervish puts it ‘The accepted wisdom that charities need donors in order to help them achieve their organisational mission, ought to be replaced by an understanding that donors choose to support charities in order to achieve their personal missions.’ 5/5

Amazing the type of money some disasters can raise.

Interesting thread by . My experience = large donations (esp those made to mega institutions) will invite scrutiny to the donor later in life. I know of many large gifts that didn't happened b/c of this risk, and too often from non-controversial donors. Bad for charity?

I find this legal decision very interesting. While it may appear counter to what we think we know about or what we expect from the law of gift, it may inch towards the type of discussion and ultimately clarity so many people active in the charity sector seek.

Odd decision. We’ll see how it plays out for members of Returning Funds to Donor: Doukhobor Heritage Retreat Society #1999 v. Vancouver Foundation

Very true. Would love to see charities be able to engage more easily in affordable housing strategy for Canada.

What if instead of giving reactively, we gave intentionally to the things that matter most to us? Wouldn’t that make feel even better? Here is how you can give with a donor advised fund this holiday season to make a difference 💪

It's awesome to be able to work with and learn from academics studying youth focused 'learn giving' programs

This is very important. There is a Cdn Uniform Law Commission Report that has been languishing for years. Maybe this will be an incentive for provinces other than SK to get on it.

to be released next Friday. Decision isn't even out yet, and I'm already sad that I'll have to wait 50 years to find out about the backroom discussions.
