What makes Daffy different from other DAFs?


Daffy stands out from other Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) due to its unique approach to charitable giving. As a not-for-profit community, Daffy is built around a modern, mobile-first platform designed to make giving easier and more accessible for everyone. One of the key features that sets Daffy apart is its ability to help users set and track their giving goals throughout the year. This feature, coupled with the ability to link your bank account or debit/credit card for automatic charitable contributions, makes Daffy a convenient and efficient platform for regular giving. Daffy also offers a modern investment approach with 13 unique investment portfolios to match your priorities. Any investment gains are tax-free and increase your giving potential, allowing you to support the causes you care about most. Moreover, Daffy offers a variety of contribution methods, including bank account, Apple Pay™, all major debit or credit cards, most publicly-traded stock, over 120+ cryptocurrencies, or even transferring an existing donor-advised fund to Daffy. Unlike traditional DAFs, Daffy does not charge based on a percentage of assets in the fund, nor does it charge based on contributions or donations. Instead, Daffy operates on a simple, flat membership due of just $3 a month. In addition to these features, Daffy also allows you to add family members to your DAF to experience giving together, and even add your financial advisor to incorporate charitable giving into your larger financial plans. By joining Daffy, you become part of a community of thousands who are all working to make the world a better place. In comparison to traditional DAF providers like Fidelity, Vanguard, and Schwab, Daffy offers a more modern, accessible, and affordable platform for charitable giving. Whether you already have a donor-advised fund or are thinking about opening one for the first time, Daffy is a great option to consider.
