Verifiable donation indicator

Verifiable donation indicator

The third proposal is an application of the second. People who donate a certain amount could receive an electronically verifiable—through a magnetic strip, QR code, pin number, or any other method—sticker or card, which participating financial institutions could incorporate into their services to make it more visible during purchases for example, by displaying either the gross amount donated or percentage of one’s income submitted toward a public good in the current fiscal year. If one makes many contributions, there could be a displayed breakdown on the sticker or card. Social pressure, studies reported by the Boston Globe find, is one of the most effective methods to extract funding from a source. So the third proposal would lead to folks trying to one-up each other, and make raising money a game of high scores, all for great causes.

Discounts for donors

Discounts for donors

The fourth proposal necessitates the third. Participating retailers could provide a discount based on the aforementioned sticker or card, either because someone donated a general amount or percentage, or just the bare fact that they donated something at all. The discount would be modest and maybe around 5%, rarely more than 10%. It could, however, be tiered according to how much is donated. Either way it would be great PR for any company who sought involvement.

Business ostracism for non-donors

The sixth and most audacious proposal for voluntary taxation involves businesses, in the pursuit of good PR or a concern for the people’s general welfare, ostracizing anyone who lacks a charity identification sticker or card by barring them from consuming their service. Strike the Root describes this plan as follows: "The dynamics of institutional development may be such that an individual who refuses to pay for defense [charity, etc.] will be effectively unable to lead a decent life in society. Payment is, in other words, voluntary, but nonpayment is excruciatingly uncomfortable." This would likely be the most effective revenue-gathering method, and its efficacy would be magnified with the previous proposals.
