American grocery store chains have discovered that they can increase conversion rates and receive tax deductions by requesting small donations from every customer. Yet this has tarnished the reputation of the charitable giving space, as most consumers don’t know who their money benefits. Charities and nonprofits can change the game by allowing customers to donate to a cause of their choice while receiving tax benefits.

After becoming jaded by the increasingly bureaucratized nature of charitable contributions, software architect Chase Harmer built a platform that provides customers with full transparency into their donations. The platform allows individuals to raise money on behalf of a nonprofit, donors to allocate funds across multiple causes, and nonprofits to request donations, all of which can be tax deferred. When working with nonprofits, Chase requires them to maintain transparency with their donors regarding the utilization of their funds, ensuring they can create a visible and tangible impact.

In this episode of the Mission Matters Podcast, Paul Feith interviews Chase Harmer, the Founder of Wishes Inc, about his mission to reinvent charitable giving. Chase describes the Wishes Inc platform, its revenue model, and his inspiration to build it.
