Revealing a greater impact.
Daylight Advisors is a global professional development community for philanthropy and social impact. Together with advisors and families, we support the practices and networks to maximize philanthropy’s potential for transforming lives.
Amidst an historic intergenerational transfer of wealth and rising needs and interest in philanthropy, it’s the ideal time to reinvigorate and elevate the practice of impact advising. We support the competence, confidence, and cultural dexterity of advisors. Learn more.
the sector better with new research on philanthropic influence
Advisors help activate the social impact of families and institutions – and there’s so much more we can do.
Advisors bring the ideas and goals of families and institutions to life. Whether a specialist, wealth manager, accountant, attorney, gift planner, or life coach, advisors are essential for enabling many types of social impact and maximizing its value. Yet amidst the opportunity of today, and imperatives such as systemic racism and climate change, three shortages hold the sector back: we don’t have enough advisors fluent in philanthropy, they are not diverse enough, and we need modern, scalable knowledge and skills to drive sustainable, equitable change.
We believe in open design and spaces, and in illuminating blind spots. Of surfacing obscured resources, and just finding inspiration with good company outside. What might Daylight be to you?
