What does HappyTabs cost?
HappyTabs is completely free for users and any participating charities. The sponsors help us keep the lights on and fund our donations to charity, which is the only money changing hands. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Click here
How do you pick the charities?
The first non-profits we've selected are just some local favorites from our team. However, we'll soon be opening it up to your suggestions, letting the community vote and pick where donations go!
How much have you donated so far?
We're just getting started, but pledge to make a minimum $25 donation each month while we grow. The more people use HappyTabs, the more we can donate!

Why only donate 50% of sponsor revenue?
There are a couple of reasons:
1) Our organization is not classified as a non-profit, so the IRS limits our charitable contribution deductions to 50% of our Adjusted Gross Income. This means we'd pay taxes on donations higher than 50% of what we earn - which is money we think can be put to better use.
2) Our awesome team has funded HappyTabs out of their own pockets and spare time. We're normal working people with a passion project, so we'll use the extra funds to cover ongoing technology costs and (hopefully) help us recoup some of the startup costs!
Down the road, we plan to restructure payments so the money flows directly from the sponsors to the charities to avoid IRS restrictions - but we need to get ourselves set up first :)
