Donations have a robust set of fields that allow you to customize how much information you share with both the charity you are supporting and within the Daffy platform. We recommend that you take the time to set defaults for these fields so that requesting a future donation is a breeze.

Follow these instructions to set your default preferences for Sharing your Information and Donation Visibility or to customize these fields for a particular donation.

Sharing personal information with the charities you support


On each donation, you can control how much personal information you share with the charities you are supporting. You may choose to include a custom name or names, email address, and other contact information like address and phone number. If your donation is Public (see below) or you choose to share some of your information, your fund name will also be included.


Please note that you may choose to share information with the charity and still keep the donation private on Daffy. If Donation Visibility is set to Private (see below), we will ask the charity keep any information that you do share private as well. To be truly anonymous, Share Information must be set to Off AND Donation Visibility be set to Private.

To update your default setting:

  1. If you use the Daffy app, go to the gear (settings) icon on the top right and tap Preferences. If you use Daffy on the web, go to daffy.org/settings/preferences.

  2. Scroll down to find the section "Share Info With Charities"

  3. If you'd like to share additional contact information with the charities you donate to, turn on the slider and type in your information.

  4. If you prefer not to share your contact information, keep the slider turned off. Note: if your donation is Public (see below), then your Fund Name and Name will be automatically shared with the charity. To be truly anonymous, Share Information must be set to Off AND Donation Visibility be set to Private.


To update a specific donation:

  1. When you submit a new donation request, the donation will automatically match the default setting you set above.

  2. To customize it further just for this donation:

    1. While requesting the donation, click Customize Donation, scroll down to Share Info With Charities.

    2. If you'd like to share additional contact information with the charities you donate to, turn on the slider and type in your information.

  3. If you prefer not to share your contact information, keep the slider turned off. Note: if your donation is Public (see below), then your Fund Name and Name will be automatically shared with the charity. To be truly anonymous, Share Information must be set to Off AND Donation Visibility be set to Private.

Note: You can also choose which charities you share information with by selecting "customize donation" when making a donation. Those settings will override your default settings.

Customizing your donation visibility


Each donation has a Visibility setting of either Public or Private, which means whether or not the donation will be displayed publicly or anonymously within the Daffy app.

Public donations are listed on your profile, the profile of the charity, and in the community feed of members that follow you and include your name, fund name, your public comment (if submitted), and the name of the charity. Public donations never include the amount of the donation.

Private donations will be displayed on Daffy anonymously and if you choose to share your information with the charity we will request that they keep it private. To be truly anonymous, Share Information must be set to Off AND Donation Visibility be set to Private.

To update your default setting:

  1. If you use the Daffy app, go to the gear (settings) icon on the top right and tap Preferences. If you use Daffy on the web, go to daffy.org/settings/preferences.

  2. Scroll down to find the section "Donation Visibility."

  3. Select Public or Private.

To update a specific donation:

  1. When you submit a new donation request, the donation will automatically match the default setting you set above.

  2. To customize it further just for this donation:

    1. While requesting the donation, click Customize Donation, scroll down to “Donation Visibility.”

    2. Select Public or Private.
