allocate funds to the top charities in their cause area, and donate to those charities on a regular basis until the fund manager comes along and updates the allocation

Because of discount rates, wouldn't it then be better to do all of the disbursements between updates right after the update, instead of dragging them out?

Or, since people will continue donating between disbursements, disburse as funding becomes available, and save a chunk (everything after a certain date) for the next update because it will be better allocated.
