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.
