Donate that Bitcoin today

With Daffy, a modern donor-advised fund provider, you can contribute the crypto, get the tax deduction now, and distribute the funds to nearly any U.S. charity anytime, all from one place.

Avoid capital gains taxes

As long as you've owned the crypto for more than a year and it has appreciated in value, you'll avoid paying capital gains taxes and receive a tax deduction for the full market value of the crypto in the year it was donated.

It’s a win for charities too

Charities don’t have to pay capital gains taxes. That means they receive the full value of your crypto. You get the full deduction and they benefit by receiving your entire donation amount.

Grow your impact, tax‑free

When you contribute, you receive an upfront tax deduction and have time to choose which charities to support. Your funds are invested tax-free in a portfolio of your choice, including Conservative, Standard, ESG, and Crypto options — so you can give more over time.

Donate to nearly any U.S. charity

The majority of charities don’t accept crypto directly. With Daffy, you can contribute complex assets easily and donate to nearly any charity, school, or religious institution in the U.S., from one place.
