Why do I need to include a public comment with my donation?


Including a public comment with your donation on Daffy is a unique feature that allows you to share your personal motivations and reasons for supporting a particular cause or organization. This is not just about making a donation, but about creating a community of givers who inspire and encourage each other. In our first year, over 36% of our donations included a public note, reflecting the deep emotional connections our members have with the causes they support. Daffy is more than just a Donor Advised Fund (DAF); it's a platform that fosters a culture of giving. We believe that when people see their family, friends, and colleagues give, it inspires more giving overall. This visibility, combined with the ability to specify how you want your funds distributed among various nonprofit initiatives, makes Daffy a unique and powerful tool for charitable giving. Moreover, Daffy is recognized as a tax-exempt public charity, making your donations tax-deductible. We also provide a range of "Private memo" options, allowing you to earmark your donation for specific causes such as Ukraine Relief, Missionary Fund, Annual Gift, and many more. We encourage you to think about the impact you want to have with your charitable giving. With Daffy, you can comfortably choose the best type of donation to help you and the nonprofits you care about achieve their goals. So why not start giving with Daffy today and make giving a habit? Join the Daffy community and be part of a movement that is making a difference.
