give365 was founded on the belief that anyone can be a philanthropist. I'm sure we all remember the TV commercials that stated you could help hungry children, or abused and neglected animals, for "less than a cup of coffee a day". Problem was, there was a time I couldn't afford the cup of coffee everyday, much less guarantee I would have $20+ in my checking account at the same time every month.
I knew there had to be a better way, an easier way, to donate in a way that made sense for my budget, yet still made a difference for my favorite charities. Inspired by my container of spare change that grew a little at the end of every day, give365 was born. Every time I spent with my debit card, there was an opportunity for 'spare change'. With the money coming out of my account a little at a time, I didn't really notice it; it never impacted my budget. Storing up all my spare change for the month meant my favorite charities could get a monthly sum year round.
