A donor-advised fund (DAF) like Daffy plays a crucial role in managing tax-deductible contributions. When you contribute to a DAF, you receive an immediate tax deduction, just as you would when donating directly to any nonprofit. This means that if you were to contribute to your Daffy fund on December 31, 2022, you'd receive the tax deduction for that year and still have time to research and gift the money to charities.
Moreover, Daffy also acts as an investment account. Your contributions are invested and have the potential to grow, maximizing the impact of your charitable giving.
One of the unique advantages of Daffy is its ability to liquidate complex assets like stock and crypto. Only a few thousand out of the 1.5 million charities in the U.S. can accept these assets directly. Daffy saves charities the hassle and costs of liquidation. Plus, since Daffy liquidates the appreciated assets, you save on taxes by getting the fair market value and skipping the capital gains, resulting in a bigger donation.
In addition to these benefits, Daffy also simplifies your tax season by keeping all your tax-deductible contributions in one place. You can even automate your contributions on a weekly or monthly basis, making giving a habit.
So, whether you're a regular donor or just starting your charitable journey, Daffy is a great option for a DAF. It's a win-win situation for both you and the charities you support.
