Yes, teens can indeed choose which charities to support on Daffy for Families. Anyone aged 13 and older can have their own account that is connected to a fund organizer’s account, typically a grandparent, parent, or another adult. Teens can add their favorite causes and choose which charities to support. When a teen submits a donation request, the organizer(s) of the fund receives all the donation details via text or email. When donation requests are approved, all family members in the fund are notified.
Daffy for Families is a fantastic option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). It's designed to help families of all types give together more easily. It's an incredible way to set a financial example for teens and young adults while also opening the door to meaningful connections by talking about each other’s passions and causes in life.
Involving your kids in charitable giving is the best way to instill a habit of giving from an early age. With Daffy for Families, we now make it easier than ever for members to include their children and grandchildren in the donation process by creating a family fund. Once invited, each family member can create their own profile, follow charities they care about, and request donations.
Daffy understands the need to protect the privacy of children, so for anyone under 18, we automatically set their profiles to private. This means that only members of their family fund can see their donation activity.
Our vision is a world where everyone puts something aside regularly for those less fortunate than themselves. We invite you to join us in making giving a habit.
