Online fundraising efforts are becoming more essential; online giving grew 9.2% in 2015 compared to 2014, and made up 7.1% of all fundraising in 2015.1 Furthermore, Nearly 14% of online donations were made on a mobile device in 2015.2 DAF donors, in particular, have embraced online giving, and the nation’s largest DAF program recently reported that its donors made 87% of their grant recommendations online.3

DAF Direct provides the opportunity to build relationships with your DAF donors. Names and addresses of donors were included with 92% of the grants made by the nation’s largest DAF program, while 42% of the grants were designated to go "where needed most."3 This is the level of engagement that the nonprofit sector has come to expect from DAF donors.
