Why are we doing this?
We believe we can make a difference together.
Jeengle’s backbone is firmly grounded in the following principles:
• To give to humanity
• To make giving easy
• To ultimately change the charitable landscape for good
Jeengle passes on
Because we want you to do the most good.
Jeengle believes that by making giving easy, people will give more.
Let’s look at some math
According to Giving USA 2017: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2016, the total charitable giving in the United States in 2016 was $281.86 Billion. After dividing that number by the total number of Americans in the workforce, 159.19 million, the average American gives $1,770.59 per year.
Based on the median American salary of $44,148 per year, the total giving as a percentage of total income is 4.0%.
Of course, we’re making assumptions with this math. Clearly some Americans give significantly more and others don’t give at all. Additionally, there are likely many Americans that aren’t in the workforce that still give to charity.
That being said, our figures are able to give us a rough starting point to see how Jeengle can create change.
A small shift can make a big difference
What if Jeengle was able to increase the average American giving by only 0.03% per person by simply making giving easier? We ran the numbers, and guess what?
