A revolutionary way for DAF donors to give

With over 1.3 million accounts and growing at 30% a year, donor-advised funds are gaining rapid mainstream adoption. Despite the rapid growth of online giving, many donor-advised fund donors are still unable to participate in any online fundraising campaigns. 

But now, thanks to the native integration between Givebutter and Chariot, empowering donors to give through a donor-advised fund has never been easier. You can accept DAF donations directly on any Givebutter donation form, fundraising campaign, or website widget!

Givebutter and Chariot are both completely free to sign up for and use. Chariot does charge a 2.9% + $0.30 processing fee for facilitating DAF donations in three simple steps, but you can enable the option for donors to cover these fees—which 95% of donors on Givebutter do when asked!

Excited to jump in but not sure where to start? We’ve got everything you need, changemaker! 

After using a combined solution of PayPal, Stripe, and DonorBox over the last 15 years, we began migrating our donors to Givebutter in 2019. The difference has been noticeable and beneficial. Givebutter has streamlined our interactions with donors, decreased our workload in processing and transferring donations, and decreased our costs.
