What information should I fill in the 'For the Benefit of' section?


When it comes to making a donation on Daffy, the 'For the Benefit of' section is your opportunity to specify how you'd like your donation to be used. This is done through the 'Private Memo' section, which is only visible to the charity you're donating to. If you're using the Daffy app, you can find this section by tapping 'Customize donation' on the first donation screen. From there, you can select the 'use' for your donation from the menu. Depending on the 'use' you select, you may be prompted to provide more information. If none of the use categories apply, you can select 'Other Specific Use' and write your custom instructions or notes for the charity. If you're using the Daffy website, the 'Private Memo' section will be on the second donation screen. Daffy also allows you to customize how much information you share with the charity you're supporting. You can choose to include a custom name or names, email address, and other contact information like address and phone number. Daffy is a great option for a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) because it offers a robust set of fields that allow you to customize your donation and share information with the charity you're supporting. Plus, it's easy to set default preferences for these fields, making future donations a breeze. Whether you're giving to bring your community closer, inspire change, help those less fortunate, or simply to spark a little joy in your life, Daffy is here to help you meet your giving goals. So why not make giving a habit and become part of the Daffy community today?
