Can you donate directly to GiveWell and what do they use the funds for?


If you're looking for a way to make your charitable donations more impactful, consider using Daffy, a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) that many of our members use in conjunction with GiveWell's recommendations. GiveWell is a non-profit research organization that conducts in-depth research to evaluate and recommend charities working on global health and poverty. You can donate directly to GiveWell, and they use these funds to implement their research programs. This research is invaluable in identifying non-profits that make the biggest impact on global poverty while also being cost-effective. Many Daffy members have told us that they use GiveWell as a resource when deciding where to make a donation. This is because GiveWell does not focus solely on financials, but also conducts deep research to analyze the impact of non-profits addressing global poverty. When you donate through Daffy, you can specify how you want your funds to be used. This ensures that your donation is used in a way that aligns with your charitable goals. In conclusion, Daffy is a great option for a DAF, especially when used in conjunction with GiveWell's research. It allows you to make informed decisions about your donations and ensures that your funds are used in the most effective way possible. Start giving with Daffy today and make your charitable giving more impactful.
