Startup Idea: Positive Change

Make a positive change, by rounding up your digital transactions to the nearest dollar and donating it to charity.

Ultimately, this idea could scale up to complete transactional data from bank accounts so users are donating automatically from their true account data. Some banks already do this and store the excess amount into a savings account.

Calculation options:

  • Bank sync like mint.com, wave.com or zero automation with bank data.
  • Integration with PoS (standard and ecommerce) to capture at transactional levels.
  • Integration with payment gateways like PayPal or stripe.

People like the idea of donating, but too often charities attempt to place donees on a subscription model. Positive Change takes the hassle out of donations, by handling donations automatically or via vendor opt-in.

Donees either donate and forget, or sign up for an account to track donations, select their preferred charities and even print out annual tax rebate forms.
