MONCTON– A New Brunswick startup is teaming up with the United Way to help them meet their ambitious fundraising goal.

Quber, a fintech company that offers a mobile app which helps users reach their savings goals, has partnered with the Greater Moncton & South Eastern New Brunswick United Way to help drive more donations to meet its $2.5 million fundraising goal for its 2018 campaign. 

The Quber mobile app motivates people to manage money by focusing on saving and donation goals. Quber makes it super easy to achieve these goals through fun challenges and ‘set & forget’ automated deposits.

“The Quber Team is excited to work with United Way to help support our local community,” said Jen Leger, co-founder of Quber, in a release. “We believe charity donations are an important part of well-being and QUBER’s objective is to make it even easier for donors to give to United Way in 2019.”

Now until Feb.15,  Quber will donate money to the Greater Moncton & South Eastern New Brunswick United Way for each new user. For every new user registration, QUBER will donate $2. If the user is activated (Moves $20 to their Quber Vault), the company will donate an additional $3. If more than 500 people register, then they will double their donation for activated users to $10 donation/activated user.

“Over eight in 10 Canadians wish they’d made better financial decisions earlier in life, according to the Financial Planning Standards Council,” said Debbie McInnis, executive director of the Greater Moncton & South Eastern New Brunswick United Way.

“With so many Canadians unsure of their financial well being, this truly is a win-win partnership for our region. Not only does it open new ways of giving for our programs, but helps promote financial literacy in our community.“
