For the socially conscious consumer, these charitable apps make it fun and easy to donate your money to a good cause. With the rise of smartphone technology, many non-profit organizations and charities have found innovative ways of engaging consumers. From hunger to homelessness, these apps help raise funds for meaningful causes.

One way organizations have made it easier for consumers to raise funds is by turning everyday activities into a means of collecting charitable donations. Whether it is a new hobby or a daily ritual, these apps make everyday activities count for so much more. Some examples of everyday charity apps include fundraising fitness apps, dieting donation apps and medication-managing apps.
