What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Not everyone has huge financial resources to throw at addressing the charitable causes they care about. PIFster, the Pay It Forward App, makes charitable giving accessible to the masses. By donating as little as $1 dollar per month, users can suggest causes and vote on causes suggested by others. That single dollar, in collaboration with others' dollars, allows users to make a difference in their community. Small risk and high reward, is our motto.

Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

PIFster The Pay It Forward App

Users set up a recurring donation of as little as $1 dollar per month. The community then suggests charitable causes they'd like to support and vote on the suggestions of others. The cause with the most community support each month, receives the communal donation. A video is then made showcasing the cause, and how the community's donation helped.
