Two Univ. of South Florida MBA grads have designed a new app, intended to allow for "transparency" (and prevent fraud) when donating to local charities.

"People interested in charitable giving now have a way to donate to Tampa Bay's hidden gems with complete transparency and assurance that 100 percent of their donation will be used for the intended purpose. Track Your Effect features little known Tampa Bay charities that are in need of assistance. Opportunities to give run the gamut – from hay for abused horses to personal energy transportation vehicles for victims of landmines." -- Megan Hendricks,
