  • You Can Now Donate to Your Chosen Charity Via GCash
  • The GCash for Good campaign was launched last month, where 20 million users of the GCash app can now donate to their chosen charities. In line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, the campaign forges partnerships with NGOs to make it easier for them to receive donations.

    GCash, operated by Globe Fintech Innovations Inc. (Mynt), is now well-equipped as a springboard for donations to non-government organizations (NGOs) that champion various advocacies—thanks to its scale and innovative digital platform.
