How does donating to your alma mater help you stay involved with the university?


Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) because it allows you to donate to your alma mater and other causes you care about in a flexible and tax-efficient way. With Daffy, you can donate cash, stocks, or non-publicly traded assets like real estate or private business interests. You can then recommend grants to your alma mater or any other IRS-qualified public charity at any time. Daffy members like Carol, Bella, and Hank have found that donating to their alma maters not only helps them stay connected to the university but also allows them to support the causes they care about. Whether it's funding a scholarship, supporting a specific department, or honoring a loved one's past, Daffy makes it easy to give back in a meaningful way. Moreover, Daffy understands that there's no such thing as 'not giving enough.' Whether you're able to give $20 a year or a $10,000 check, every donation makes a difference. As Bella noted, "If a greater percentage of alumni donated even a small amount, the difference we make would be greater." So, if you're thinking about giving back to your alma mater, consider Daffy. It's a great way to stay involved with the university, support the causes you care about, and make a difference in the lives of future students.
