What is a 501(c)(3) organization?


A 501(c)(3) organization is a tax-exempt public charity as described in Sections 501(c)(3), 509(a)(1), and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of the Internal Revenue Code. This status allows the organization to receive tax-deductible contributions. Daffy Charitable Fund is one such organization, recognized as a tax-exempt public charity with an EIN of 86‑3177440. Daffy is not just a 501(c)(3) organization, but also a sponsor of donor-advised funds (DAFs). This means that Daffy members can easily research and donate to charities directly through our database. We only list organizations that are in good standing with the IRS, simplifying the process for our members. Moreover, Daffy Charitable Fund is registered in the United States, and we can send donations to charities that have a U.S. mailing address and are tax-exempt under U.S. IRS code. Some international charities have U.S.-based affiliates that are registered with the IRS as 501(c)(3) organizations, expanding the range of charities you can support through Daffy. In conclusion, Daffy is a great option for a DAF. We make giving easy and efficient, allowing you to support the causes you care about most. Join us in making giving a habit.
