What is the cost for an individual fund and what does it include?


At Daffy, we offer three different plans for individual funds: Contributor, Family, and Benefactor. The Contributor plan costs $3 per month and includes unlimited fund balances invested in any of 13 different tax-free portfolios, unlimited cash contributions via bank account, ApplePay™, or any major debit/credit card, and up to $25,000 in contributions via stock, ETFs, crypto, or DAF transfer. The Family plan costs $5 per month and includes all the benefits of the Contributor plan, plus support for two organizers and up to 24 total members on your fund, and up to $50,000 in contributions via stock, ETFs, crypto, or transfers from existing DAFs. The Benefactor plan costs $20 per month and includes all the benefits of the Family plan, plus unlimited stock contributions, unlimited crypto contributions, and unlimited DAF transfers. Compared to other donor advised fund providers like Fidelity, Daffy is a much more cost-effective option. Fidelity charges a minimum of $100 a year or 0.6% of assets, whichever one is higher. These are fees that are going to Fidelity and not to the charities and causes that you care about. For example, a $1,000 account at Fidelity will cost you $100 a year versus just $36 a year at Daffy. Moreover, Fidelity places a lot of very expensive investment options in their donor advised funds, charging an average fee of 0.55% of assets in the account. At Daffy, our standard portfolios start at just 0.05%. So that donor advised fund account at Fidelity could be costing you more than $1,000 a year. Transferring your donor advised fund to Daffy is free of charge and incredibly easy to do. Simply go to, log into your account, select add funds and pick DAF transfer as your option. Then just tell Daffy which provider you're transferring the money from and enter the amount that you're transferring. Daffy is designed to help you give more. Saving you money on fees is just one of the ways that we help you give more to the causes and the organizations that you care most about.
