AGYA Now Raising Money with SwipeGood

AGYA has teamed up with SwipeGood, a company that helps nonprofit organizations make fundraising more efficient. Here’s how it works:
  • Go to http://swipegood.com/charity/agya-international
  • Sign up your card
  • At the end of each month, SwipeGood will round up each purchase to the nearest dollar, and donate the change to AGYA.
  • You can also cap your monthly donations, so you‘re in complete control of the amount of money you donate each month.
"To make giving easier we wanted to eliminate the main three decision points people have: deciding how much to give, deciding when to give, and deciding who to give to," said Steli Efti, Member of the SwipeGood Team.
"People can donate to AGYA every time they go grocery shopping or eat out in a restaurant, basically helping to empower, educate and enrich the lives of vulnerable children and youth in Uganda every time they spend money."

So the next time you're at the checkout counter, think about the difference your pennies can make. By making a tax-deductible donating through SwipeGood, you can turn the spare change for every purchase into an opportunity to help Ugandan youth gain access to arts education and leadership skills.
