Use Your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) to Offset Your Unavoidable CO2 Emissions

$15 per tonne | 90% goes to projects | 100% U.S. tax-deductible

DAF Options

  • For Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon please use DAF Direct.
  • For other DAF’s, please use DAF donations are processed by Chariot and entail a 2.9% fee, which is covered by COTAP’s 10% margin.
  • prompts donors to add an optional 15% to support them. For example, if you donate $1,000 and add their suggested 15%, then you’d be donating $1,150 and offsetting 66.67 tonnes ($1,000 ÷ $15/tonne). Regardless, the entire amount is tax-deductible.
  • If your DAF is not listed with DAF Direct or, you can still donate by providing COTAP’s charity number 27-4220630.
  • If you don’t yet have a DAF, folks like Daffy seek to make it as easy as possible to set one up.


  • Offset any dollar amount at right (below if mobile/tablet). If you know your carbon footprint, multiply by $15/tonne. If you don’t, it’s also fine to enter a dollar amount and we’ll do the rest.
  • To offset evenly through all COTAP projects, the donation/grant “Designation” should be “Offsetting: All Projects.”
  • To offset to one specific project, the “Designation” should note the country of the chosen project – Uganda, India, Indonesia, or Fiji e.g. “Offsetting: India.”
  • For donations without an “offsetting” designation, 100% goes to COTAP’s operations and expansion. This includes donations intended as general COTAP support, with designations such as “wherever it’s needed most.”
  • If you have trouble specifying your designation, please email us at to ensure that your donation is applied according to your wishes.
  • To receive an official offsetting acknowledgement from COTAP, you must include contact information.
