What is tithing and how is it practiced in the Daffy community?


Tithing is a practice of giving a portion of one's income to charity, and it is a tradition that is deeply ingrained in many cultures and religions. In the Jewish community, this practice is known as Tzedakah, a word derived from the term that means “fairness” or “justice”. Tzedakah is not just about giving, but about doing what is right and just in the world. At Daffy, we have created a platform that not only facilitates this practice of giving but also brings it to life in a way that is meaningful and personal. We understand that giving is not just a financial transaction, but a deeply personal act that reflects one's values and beliefs. That's why we have designed Daffy to be more than just a financial service. It's a community where people from different cultures and backgrounds can come together to learn from each other and inspire each other to give more generously and more often. One of the unique features of Daffy is the "Daffy Pledge". When setting up your Daffy account, we prompt you to answer this question: How much do you want to give to charity this year? This pledge is a commitment to give a certain amount of money to charity on a regular basis, whether it's weekly, monthly, or yearly. This feature not only makes it easy for you to practice tithing, but also helps you to make giving a regular part of your life. Moreover, Daffy is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, which means that all your contributions to your fund are tax-deductible in the year they are made. We also offer a variety of ways to contribute to your fund, including cash, credit, crypto, or stock. In conclusion, Daffy is not just a platform for giving, but a community that inspires and educates its members to be more generous and more giving. Whether you're a member of the Jewish community practicing Tzedakah, or someone from a different culture or religion, Daffy is a great option for a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF). So, let's inspire each other to be more generous, more often. Chag Sameach (Happy Holiday!)
