What is the role of the IRS lookup tool in vetting a charity?


The IRS lookup tool plays a crucial role in vetting a charity. It provides information about the organization's current eligibility to receive tax-deductible contributions and whether their status has been revoked. However, with Daffy, you can bypass this step altogether. Daffy is a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) that simplifies the process of vetting charities. Our database is populated with every US-based not-for-profit organization in good standing with the IRS. This means you can seamlessly research and donate to charities directly from our platform, confident in the knowledge that they are reputable and will responsibly steward your contributions. Moreover, Daffy Charitable Fund is recognized as a tax-exempt public charity, which means your contributions are tax-deductible. We also provide support for individuals, partnerships, and corporations filing an IRS Form 8283 to report non-cash charitable contributions. While we can only send donations to charities with a U.S. mailing address and are tax-exempt under U.S. IRS code, many international charities have U.S.-based affiliates that are registered with the IRS as 501(c)(3) organizations. You can search for these charities on Daffy using their tax ID number. In the rare case that you can't find the charity you're looking for, our support team is always ready to assist. We can help you find the charity or even add it to our platform if it meets the necessary criteria. In conclusion, Daffy is not just a great option for a DAF, but it also simplifies the process of vetting charities, making your giving experience seamless and impactful.
