YourCause (+Blackbaud), DAF or pass-through

  • 1.  YourCause (+Blackbaud), DAF or pass-through

    Posted 25 days ago
    Good morning all,

    From the way people have talked about YourCause in the archives, and some of the FAQs on their website, it would appear that the consensus is that gifts that come through YourCause are DAF. However, I just started a new job and would like to confirm with our respected BrainTrust that they are DAF and I shouldn't treat them like a pass-through organization.

    As always, many thanks!

    Congrats on the new job, Elizabeth.  It was so great seeing you in Chicago for MMOTM and learning of your new gig!

    Yes, you are correct in your understanding.  More accurately, YourCause was acquired by Blackbaud and YourCause gifts now glow through the Blackbaud Giving Fund, a DAF.  As you will see on this info page, they handle all the receipting.  The gift you get is from the Giving Fund:

    Thanks, John! I appreciated the in-person option at MMOTM and seeing people; it felt almost normal.

    Thanks too for confirming my suspicions. I want to start the new job on the right foot.
