Everyone needs a friend that inspires you to give a little more. Luckily, with our friends at Planet Fundraiser, giving back to important causes has never been simpler.
So, what is Planet Fundraiser? This tech startup streamlines charitable giving by connecting customers with a network of shops, restaurants, and grocery stores that benefit their communities. Just upload receipts from participating merchants to the Planet Fundraiser app, which in return gives back a percentage to local schools and nonprofits. Thanks to the Shipt community, we were Planet Fundraiser’s third biggest supporters in 2017. As we venture in 2018, we hope to land the top spot.
It’s easy to get started – just download the Planet Fundraiser app in the App Store or Google Play. Next time you get a delivery from Shipt, take a screenshot of your receipt, by selecting the camera button from within the app. Then choose the photo icon to upload your screenshot and Shipt will automatically donate 3% of your receipt total toward the cause of your choice.
From local schools, sports teams, and other nonprofits, you can easily make a difference in your community. There are hundreds of schools and nonprofits already listed, but if don’t see a cause you’re passionate about, you can add a group through their website. Check out the Planet Fundraiser app and start giving back today!
