Here’s another tech startup that makes donating to charity much easier.
SwipeGood is the company and their process is pretty straight forward. The way it works is that your credit card transactions are rounded to the nearest dollar and the actual difference from the rounding (less than a dollar) is given to a charity of your choice.
Currently, that list is small, but it includes popular choices such as charity:water and DonorsChoose.org.
On average, SwipeGood users end up donating about $20 each per month. The “spare change” is totaled and charged on a monthly basis. Of those amounts, SwipeGood pockets around 5% — a relatively small amount that serves to cover their operating expenses.
