Good Done Great Launches the First Mobile Giving App which Connects Givers, Non-Profits, and Corporations

Charleston, SC –  May 24, 2016 – Good Done Great, a technology-enabled CSR company, announces today the official launch of their mobile app, the first mobile giving app which connects givers, non-profits, and corporations to charitable causes and activities. The mobile app, self-titled Good Done Great, enables users to contribute monetarily to over 2 million non-profit organizations across the world.

“We are always striving to provide the most innovating products to our clients,” said Paul McElhinney, Chief Technology Officer at Good Done Great. “Our goal is to deploy the best technology for each of our users on a case by case basis.”

Through the Good Done Great app, givers search the database of charities, contribute to their favorite cause, and track their progress toward giving goals. Furthermore, givers can contribute regularly through monthly donations donated via credit card, provide gift cards to other app users, browse recommended charities, follow their favorite organizations, and view their company’s impact.  

Now corporations will engage a whole new segment of employees- those who do not have access to a desktop computer during regular working hours. These retail, line, and hospitality workers now have the same capabilities as their fellow colleagues. No longer will employees feel disengaged from their company’s giving programs. All employees and givers now have the tools right at their fingertips to give whenever they are compelled to do so.

“Many employees do not sit in front of a computer all day. We are excited to provide these employees with the same ability to make a positive impact as their colleagues,” said Good Done Great CEO, David Barach. “Employees at our retail and manufacturing partners will now have an easier way to do good.” 

The Good Done Great mobile app will be featured in a webinar discussing the benefits of mobile technology to engage offline employees at 2:00 PM EST on June 14th. Registration is currently open to all interested participants at https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4588468006171348994
