'Altruist' is a micro-donation app that allows users to donate their spare change to the charity of their choice. While not everyone is able to make large philanthropic donations, many people are eager to contribute to their favorite causes. This app provides an easy way for users to incorporate giving into their everyday lives.

Altruist is a mobile application that is linked to each user's credit card. The app automatically rounds each purchase up to the nearest dollar and then donates the leftover funds to charity. Users can choose which charity they would like their spare change to go towards, which gives them the ability to support different causes. The app provides a simple and easy way for users to give back with each and every purchase they make.

While the app is not available for download, users can sign up for the private beta by visiting the Altruist website.
