Save time for donors, free more funds for non-profits.

A DAF account administered by CyberGrants takes the cost and overhead out of distributing funds for philanthropy.

Get more impact.

Disburse the maximum donation in the shortest amount of time at the lowest possible cost to the non- profit. Enjoy those advantages — and more — with a donor-advised fund (DAF) administered by CyberGrants.

Why our DAF solution is better for donors

Cut administrative costs

You don’t have to create payable accounts for NPOs, accept and track employee donations, account for matching gifts, cut checks, or process tax receipts. A single tax receipt and reconciliation reports dramatically reduce your internal costs.

Offload legal risk

By contributing through a DAF, the fund assumes the legal liability for violation of anti- terrorism legislation such as the Patriot Act.

Make funds flow predictable

Costs are tied to your funds flow and disbursements happen at monthly or quarterly intervervals. With regular payments and the fees tied to the scope of your programs, you can expand your efforts and confidently know what the costs will be.

Free more funds for NPOs

The more-efficient approach allows us to handle the administrative overhead for both you and the NPOs for a 2.97% funds transfer fee, capped at $250 per transaction. More than 97% of your philanthropy dollars are available to the NPOs to devote to your causes.

Outsource NPO support

CyberGrants handles the entire disbursements process, including handling any questions the charities have regarding your donation on your behalf.

Accelerate tax benefits

Because you are contributing to a DAF, you can claim your tax deduction immediately and allocate the funds later to the NPOs as you see fit.

Why our DAF solution is better for NPOs

Reduce administrative burden

CyberGrants handles the NPO’s internal costs of processing donations, maintaining donor records, issuing tax receipts and attendant costs such as bank fees and postage. This means they can devote more of your dollars to the cause.

Accelerate payments

All your donations go to the NPO, monthly or quarterly, in a single transmission that’s executed electronically. Bypassing paper checks gives them a more-predictable source of funds that they can put to immediate use.

Get help via portal and call center

NPOs access information about your grants and donations through an online reporting portal. When they have questions, the CyberGrants support center answers them on your behalf so they have a single convenient source for information.

Tailor a solution to your specific accounting practices with comprehensive disbursements options.

If disbursing through a DAF isn’t an option, CyberGrants is ready to custom-fit a disbursements solution for you. We can set up a for-benefit-of account dedicated to your donations, and issue disbursements via ACH or printed checks that carry your branded identity while we handle the administration. Or if you need to handle the payments in-house, we can furnish reports to your accounting department directing disbursements. When you choose either of these approaches, we provide a complete set of options to support your desired process.

  • Innovating Incredible: FrontDoor, Keeping the needs of nonprofits at the forefront

      Innovating Incredible: FrontDoor Keeping the needs of nonprofits at the forefront. The vision for FrontDoor was born during the first-ever CyberGrants Nonprofit Council meeting in 2017. When asked what would be the most impactful thing that we could work on together in the next 12 months, those in attendance agreed that a single point of entry – i.e. a “front door for CyberGrants” – should make the biggest difference in a nonprofit’s daily activities. At that time, each nonprofit had to visit multiple CyberGrants hosted websites – sometimes multiple per client – to accomplish regular tasks such as gift confirmation, disbursement tracking, and grant applications. Larger nonprofits with multiple chapters or locations often had to resort to spreadsheets to keep their logins and addresses in order. Once a nonprofit logged into a company portal, they were often faced with an experience that was different from what they would find on other websites hosted on the CyberGrants platform. This raised their training costs significantly. Upon further reflection, it became clear that nonprofits not only needed a single entry point but also a consolidated consistent experience to achieve the efficiencies that are required to operate a charity in today’s competitive philanthropic climate.

  • Empowering Nonprofits and Shifting the Corporate Mindset

      Empowering Nonprofits and Shifting the Corporate Mindset Safe, efficient, effective philanthropy is essential for all, from corporations to foundations, to create meaningful impact through corporate giving programs. A key component to achieving this is through empowering our nonprofits. The giving process doesn't stop with your company sending money to the nonprofit organization (NPO). Companies and NPOs want each dollar to go further, faster. Reducing the time and effort of processing gifts and awarding funds quickly can be a game changer for the causes you support. Empowering NPOs to be more efficient and effective enhances the relationships between companies and NPOs, and drives greater overall impact.
