We are also people that like to talk to people, so if you’d rather a one-on-one (call, interview, meeting over coffee etc), please contact our Operations and Marketing Manager, Sarah Deasy via email at email@example.com or by phone at (919)608-5415.
What is GoodBookey?
GoodBookey is an app that raises funds and awareness for impactful non-profits by simulating peer-to-peer gambling on popular national and collegiate sports events.
Being good isn’t always easy, but we are changing that. We make donating funds to partner nonprofits quick, fun, and social through our peer to peer challenge system. Winning never felt so good.
History – GoodBookey design and development has been underway for the past 18 months as a collaborative effort by the founders.
How Does it Work?
The user simply picks a sport event, picks a donation wager, selects a charity to play for, and then challenges a friend. The loser makes a tax deductible donation to the winner’s selected nonprofit. See our videos(under ‘Let’s see it!’ section) for an overview and visual demo.

Our team is a combination of creatives, technologists and veteran entrepreneurs with a passion for addressing social issues with technical solutions.

Who processes the payment?
Payments are processed by our Secure Payment Processor, Stripe. Platforms like Uber run on Stripe.
But is it legal?
Yup. No money is being exchanged between participants and the donations are at will (meaning no donation is automatically processed, the user must select “Pay” upon each event outcome). Plus our lawyers said so 😀
Is there a reason why there aren’t many national charities?
While we are absolutely open to supporting larger charities, our goal is to provide small to medium size nonprofits with a tool for engaging their current donor base while exposing their mission to new philanthropic minded individuals in their communities
