We were inspired by seeing peoples reluctance to pay taxes, and also seeing people's enthusiasm towards charitable donations, and we decided to connect the two and make our product.

What it does

We made a website with a calculator, which calculates the best amount of money to donate in order to save the most money on taxes.

How we built it

We split our team into groups, and first we all researched IRS tax brackets, then Arvin took over the Html and website side of things while Karthik and Rishi focused on the java backend portion.

Challenges we ran into

Some challenges we ran into were technological issues while recording, and time issues as our time wasn't able to properly coordinate.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We were proud that we were able to finish this calculator and website in such a short period of time with new years and the holidays.

What we learned

We learned how to use applets in java to incorporate the java into the html.

What's next for

We would like to get input from larger organizations to refine our process and website with feedback from them.
