Our Impact

There are currently 200+ million smartphones in use in the United States. If each of us contribute as low as $5 per month, we can raise $2.4 billion annually for charity.
For many of us, $5, $10 or even $20 a month will hardly be noticed. If Good Cents can help capture a small fraction of these funds from millions of smartphone users for charity, together we can change the world.

Our Story

The inspiration for Good Cents was rooted in our personal desire to actively support the fight against terminal diseases. We wanted to do this while somehow not disrupting the incredibly busy daily obligations related to family and career. We also spend significant time commuting to day jobs using mass transit. As the years went by we noticed the draw to smartphone screens grew so strong that even on crowded trains and ferries human interaction was nearly nonexistent. We wondered if there was a way to turn that addiction into something positive. We eventually combined the two concepts and created Good Cents. Good Cents is a platform matching nonprofits and donors where the donations are driven by users’ screen time. We designed it to be effortless, paperless, and transparent, such that all users can see all accumulating donations, creating a shared sense of purpose. We also designed it to be based on microdonations, such that anyone can participate, regardless of income level.

Start putting your time to good use.

We understand that smartphone addiction is a real issue in today’s culture. On average, Americans spend nearly 5 hours per day socializing on their mobile devices. We tap into screen time usage to turn this problem into a blessing.
