TAGG Launches Community-Wide Campaign Encouraging Everyone to Raise $20 in 2020
TAGG—Together A Greater Good (www.togetheragreatergood.com)—the Midwest-based tech start-up known for the free fundraising app creating mutually beneficial relationships between local businesses and organizations, recently launched a 2020 campaign seeking to gain the support of more than 20,000 Nebraskans.
TAGG, which partners with over 300 businesses and has generated more than $400,000 for local schools, nonprofits, religious institutions, and youth sports teams since its 2015 founding, is aiming to double the amount of donations it has facilitated to date by having individuals commit to raise “$20 in ‘20.”
Community members in Omaha and Lincoln metro areas are encouraged to sign up and choose which organization they are going to raise $20 for, motivating people of all ages to selectively support charitable merchants first and keeping funds local. Reaching the $20 goal and recruiting friends results in being entered to win prizes from participating businesses.

“Our goal in launching the ‘$20 in ‘20’ campaign is to create a grassroots movement positively impacting all facets of our community,” said Leslie Fischer, co-founder. “We recognize the importance of every dollar spent and want individuals to be able to give back without spending an extra penny.”
Through the free TAGG smartphone app, participating businesses donate a portion of their customers’ purchases to the customers’ chosen cause using receipt capture technology. The newest version of the app, released in 2019, includes “near me” and map view directory of businesses in the metropolitan area willing to give back.
Some of the newest businesses to join the app’s growing list of participating merchants include Osaka Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, WestEnd Lounge, The Corner Kick, Grover Ice, select Runza locations, and 17 Hy-Vee stores including all Omaha, Papillion, Council Bluffs, Plattsmouth and Fremont locations.
