CharityVest is creating a charitable giving platform that: 1. Requires no transaction fees—100% of every gift goes to nonprofits, 2. Creates an excellent UX for donors, and 3. Forms improved connections (both informational and financial) between donors and nonprofits. It leverages donor-advised funds (DAFs) to create a donor-centric funding platform. These DAFs effectively provide a free, tax deductible "checking account for giving" to every donor, enabling donors to give digitally to any charity instantly from their own "Charity Fund." This resembles a "Venmo for charity." Charityvest charges no fees whatsoever, Charityvest creates revenue by investing a portion of the aggregate capital in low-risk financial assets.
