11-12-15: Revolutionary app lets consumers target a percentage of every purchase to their favorite cause

CauseNetwork™ Launches Free Fundraising Mobile App for Nonprofits

MCLEAN, VA, Nov. 12, 2015 – A new mobile app launched this week by CauseNetwork™ makes it easy for consumers and their favorite nonprofit causes to join forces so that every shopping experience generates contributions by retailers. The mobile app, which is free to consumers and nonprofit causes, promises to make this holiday season greener for charitable causes of all kinds.
CauseNetwork app gives shoppers online access to over 1,000 retailers, including Priceline, Target, Amazon, and Walmart. By using the app, shoppers can direct up to 10 percent of every online purchase to their chosen cause once it joins CauseNetwork. Nonprofit groups can go further to help their communities by partnering with local merchants to provide fundraising coupons and offers through the app.

CauseNetwork is the brainstorm of two former nonprofit board members who wanted to make it easier for causes to raise funds, put more giving power in the hands of consumers and help retailers give to causes supported by their shoppers. Launched quietly earlier this year, CauseNetwork has signed up more than 150 local and national charities and interest grows daily.
“We give people a way to do more without asking them to spend more. Now consumers generate donations through their purchases and direct them to the cause they care about. And we’ve made it free!” said Clay Buckley, President of CauseNetwork.
Diane Clifford, [title] of the National Audubon Society said after joining CauseNetwork, “We are always looking for new and innovative ways for our members to support our cause, and with CauseNetwork, our members can help further our conservation mission while doing their online shopping.”
CauseNetwork’s new app also has the capability for direct messaging, furthering a charity’s ability to generate donations and deliver on their mission. The app is available for Apple and Android phones. To download the mobile app, please use these links for the Apple and Google Play stores.
