Do I need a Daffy account to send a Daffy Gift?


The answer is yes. However, the process is incredibly simple and beneficial. Daffy is a fantastic platform for managing your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). With Daffy, you can easily send a digital charity gift card directly from your Daffy fund. This gift card, known as a Daffy Gift, can be sent with a personal message to your chosen recipient. The recipient then has the freedom to choose any charity they wish to support from over 1.5 million charities, non-profits, schools, and religious institutions supported on Daffy. The best part? The recipient doesn't even need to create a Daffy account to redeem the gift. Here's how it works: 1. If you're already a Daffy member, simply tap “Daffy Gifts” on the Homescreen of the Daffy app or navigate to https://www.daffy.org/gifts on the web. 2. Choose a recipient and the amount you’d like to gift from your fund. 3. Add a personal message and send it to their email, or copy the link and send it directly however you’d like. 4. The recipient chooses which charity they’d like to support. 5. Once they select a charity, Daffy will send you an email to let you know to approve it and the donation will be sent from your fund. If you're not yet a Daffy member, no problem. It only takes 2 minutes to get started. Create a Daffy account today and start giving back in a meaningful and convenient way. Daffy Gifts do not expire and are tax-deductible in the year they were made. However, they are not tax-deductible for the recipient. At this time, Daffy gifts are sent only through email. So, whether you're setting up your Daffy account or you're an existing member, Daffy is a great option for managing your DAF and making a difference in the world.
