In the Jewish tradition, Tzedakah, derived from the word that means “fairness” or “righteousness”, makes charitable giving one of the core responsibilities of the faith. This concept is one of the main influences that led us to build Daffy. At Daffy, we understand that giving to charity is a deeply personal act, often rooted in cultural or religious traditions. We also recognize that navigating the world of philanthropy can be challenging, especially when the organization you wish to support comes from a different culture. That's why we're committed to making it easier for our Jewish members to give, and to educating and encouraging our non-Jewish members when they give to Jewish organizations. One of the most wonderful things about Daffy is that we’re a community based on a simple idea: a vision of a world where everyone puts money aside regularly for those less fortunate than themselves. We believe that Daffy can help bring together people from a wide variety of cultures and experiences, and hopefully, we can all learn a little bit from each other about how and why we give to the causes and organizations we care about. From the day Daffy launched, we have seen incredible adoption and support from the Jewish community. We are inspired by how many members live aspects of their faith by giving. We see some members who tithe regularly to their synagogues, while others practice zakat and sadaqah during Ramadan. Each of these acts not only teaches us about various forms of charity, but also helps us in our efforts to build a new platform for giving. We believe that Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) for synagogues. We not only honor the traditions of giving but also aim to share those with others. We hope that by learning more from different communities about how they give, we can design these ideas into our product to help inspire and educate each other. If you have a special tradition in your religion, community, or family — we’d love for you to tell us about it. Let’s inspire each other to be more generous, more often. Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday!)
