What is the Giving Balance and how do I use it?

A Giving Balance is a way for your teen to donate to a charity of their choice. They can set a monetary goal for the pod to reach and once that goal is achieved, their donation will be sent to their chosen charity. To set this up, you'll want to log into the Current app and follow the steps below:

  1. Tap View All Accounts and select the teen that you're creating a Giving Balance for
  2. Tap Savings Pods
  3. Swipe Right to view your teen's Giving Pod and tap Edit Pod
  4. You can then choose an organization from the list displayed, or tap into the search field to locate other organizations
  5. Once you've found the organization you'd like to donate to, tap it and then choose a goal amount for your donation
  6. After you do this, you'll see your giving goal and your current progress appear within the giving balance.

If you'd like to add funds to, edit, or cancel this goal, tap into the goal and deposit funds into or transfer funds out as well. When your donation is made you will receive an email from Current. This email represents your tax receipt and will include all the details you need to report this donation at tax time.

If you're unable to locate the charity you'd like to donate to, email us at support@current.com and include the charity's name, address, and tax identification number (EIN).
