Uganda Charity Makes Donations Easier

-A +A

[Global: Uganda]

Empowering Development Alternatives has teamed up with SwipeGood, a company that helps American nonprofit organizations make fundraising more efficient.

Here’s how it works: Just go to, choose "Empowering Development Alternatives" as your charity, and enter your credit or debit card information.  At the end of each month, SwipeGood will round up each purchase to the nearest dollar, and donate the change to Empowering Development Alternatives.

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 Empowering Development Alternatives every time they go grocery shopping or eat out in a restaurant, basically helping to break the cycle of poverty in rural Uganda by educating and empowering young men and women to become agents of change every time they spend money.”  

Please go to and sign up your card, round up your purchases, and donate the change to Empowering Development Alternatives.

So the next time you're at the checkout counter, think about the difference your pennies can make.  By donating through SwipeGood, you can turn the spare change for every purchase into a great education opportunity for children in Uganda.
