To answer the question, no, you do not need a Daffy account to use Daffy Gifts. However, having a Daffy account opens up a world of possibilities for charitable giving.
Daffy is a fantastic platform for managing a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). With Daffy, you can easily send a digital charity gift card directly from your Daffy fund. You can add a personal message and send it to the recipient's email, or copy the link and send it to them directly however you’d like.
The recipient can then choose which charity they’d like to support from over 1.5 million charities, non-profits, schools, and religious institutions supported on Daffy. The best part? The recipient can redeem the gift without even creating a Daffy account.
Once they select which charity they’d like to support, 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. Once you add funds to your account, you'll be able to send as many Daffy Gifts as you’d like!
Daffy Gifts do not expire and may be used at any time. The contributions you’ve made to your Daffy fund are tax-deductible in the year that they were made, so Daffy Gifts are not tax-deductible since you already received a tax deduction for that amount.
In conclusion, while you don't need a Daffy account to use Daffy Gifts, having one makes the process of giving to charity easy, efficient, and rewarding. So why not create a Daffy account today and start making a difference?
