Dave lives off of tips, kind of like a waiter but with fur. So, while tipping is optional, it’s greatly appreciated!
Tips allow us to help people without charging the insane interest rates of most banks. Dave charges 0% interest. Compare that to the 3,250% APR your bank charges for overdraft fees!
What about the $1 monthly membership? Most people don’t know that we get fees for providing you this service. Connecting to your bank, getting your balance updates, sending you texts if you’re about to overdraft – these all cost us money. We use the $1 monthly membership fee to offset some of these costs. So, your tips are really what keep our lights on!
Plus, we donate a tree for every % you tip through our partner, Trees For The Future (www.trees.org). Trees aren't just good for the environment -- Trees for the Future greatly benefit entire economies in Sub-Saharan Africa. Your donations help families transition from destructive farming techniques to a sustainable agricultural practice that empowers and sustains them for generations. Not only would planting a tree by yourself cost more, but by donating a tree through us, you're literally saving lives. Want to know more? Check out our article on Trees.
Feeling inspired? Make like a tree and leave a tip.
