What is the 'Add a private note' field when making a donation on Daffy?


When making a donation on Daffy, the 'Add a private note' field is a unique feature that allows you to communicate directly with the charity of your choice. This feature, known as the "Private Memo," is designed to give you the power to specify how you want your donation to be used. Whether you're using the Daffy app or website, you can easily find this feature. On the app, tap "Customize donation" on the first donation screen and look for the "Private Memo" section. On the website, this section is located on the second donation screen. You can select the "use" for your donation from a menu, and depending on your choice, you'll be prompted to provide more information. If none of the use categories apply, simply select "Other Specific Use" and write your custom instructions or notes for the charity. All donations made through Daffy are accompanied by a letter that includes information from the donor and a memo line indicating the donor’s intent for the donation. This ensures that your donation is used exactly as you intended. Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) because it not only allows you to donate to over 1.5 million charities, non-profits, schools, and religious institutions, but also gives you the power to control how your donation is used. Moreover, Daffy encourages a culture of giving by rewarding you for inviting friends. For every friend that becomes a member, you receive an extra $25 in your Daffy fund, and they do too. So, whether you're a new member setting up your Daffy account or an existing member, remember that every donation you make can be customized to your preference. With Daffy, you're not just making a donation; you're making a difference.
