The first-ever, all-in-one financial wholeness app, Spave® exists to transform spending for good through mobile technology that empowers and rewards consumers to use everyday spending to save for themselves and give to others, without changing the way they live.

The success of Spave® is centered around micro-donations, converting one-time donors into engaged, recurring donors – reaching a broader audience of like-hearted, conscious consumers who care about causes.

The app’s features — such as purchase tracking and analysis, setting goals, donating to causes, group giving, rewards, and statistics — educate users on their habits, motivating them to use the app to make more healthy, well-balanced decisions.

How Spave works

The Spave® app deducts micro-amounts (“spavings”) from your primary checking account whenever you make a purchase using cards linked to the app (debit or credit). You define the percentage to spave, and Spave® automatically distributes them to your savings and selected charity(ies).


The Spave® app lets users:

  • Easily and securely link their accounts to start saving and giving with every swipe of the card. Users then watch their spavings grow.
  • Define the spaving amounts that allow them to live the life they want, give to the causes they care about, and save for a secure, fulfilling future.
  • View their spending, giving, and saving all in one place.
  • Set it and forget it – but users often don’t want to because Spave provides insights into their everyday spending to help them stay on track with their goals.
  • Create or modify weekly, monthly, or yearly goals and track progress. Compare charitable contributions and personal savings against total spending.
  • A brand new Spave app is coming Fall of 2023. Be the first to experience it.
