Law Grad's GivnGo App Allows You To Round Up Your Purchases For Charity

GivnGo LogoOne of my former tax students, Arian Behboodi (J.D & M.B.A. 2017, Pepperdine), has created a very cool app, GivnGo.  The app allows a user to register a credit or debit card and the app rounds up your purchases to the next dollar and distributes the change to the charity or charities of your choice.  For example, if you spend $15.75, then the next dollar up is $16.00, so GivnGo distributes 25 cents to your charity. The app is available on iTunes.

The FAQs explain that GivenGo charges 5% per transaction, plus any credit or debit card fees.

Don't give to charity. You already pay enough in taxes for entitlements and the like.
