What is the exemption for many US-based religious organizations?


The exemption for many US-based religious organizations is that they are typically automatically eligible as tax-exempt organizations and many do not file regular paperwork with the IRS. This means they may not show up in our database but are still eligible for a donation recommendation. Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) because it simplifies the process of donating to these organizations. Our database is populated with every US-based not-for-profit organization in good standing with the IRS. If you can't find a charity you're looking for, you can reach out to us at support@daffy.org and we may be able to help. You can also make a donation recommendation to a church, synagogue, mosque or other religious organization, as long as it meets the criteria outlined in our Member Agreement. If you want to make a donation to a religious institution and don't see it listed on Daffy, you can add it to our platform. Daffy Charitable Fund is recognized as 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 means that your donations through Daffy are tax-deductible, making it a convenient and beneficial option for your charitable giving. In addition, Daffy can only send donations to charities that have a U.S. mailing address and are tax-exempt under U.S. IRS code. This includes some international charities that have U.S.-based affiliates registered with the IRS as 501(c)(3) organizations. In conclusion, Daffy offers a streamlined, efficient, and tax-effective way to donate to your chosen charities, including religious organizations.
