Omaha nonprofit makes giving easy
OMAHA, Neb. — Together a Greater Good, an Omaha nonprofit, has launched an app for Apple and Android devices to allow shoppers to give back to their communities. The app allows users to contribute 5 percent of their purchases to a charity of their choice.
About 75 businesses around Omaha and 100 nonprofits have partnered with TAGG.
Users can download the app and then select the charities they would like to support. As they make a purchase at a participating retailer the user must inform the cashier that they want to “TAGG” the purchase. The amount of the purchase is then entered into the app, and the business then designates the percentage of the sale to the selected nonprofit.
If users so desire, they may tout their donation on social media to other TAGG users.
TAGG reported it launched the app as a way for nonprofits to raise money without investing any money or resources into the program.
