Apple has strict guidelines dictating no charitable donations and the app has to be free if there are...

  1. Charities and contributions

    • 21.1 Apps that include the ability to make donations to recognized charitable organizations must be free.

    • 21.2 The collection of donations must be done via a web site in Safari or an SMS.

I want to monetize the app and donate a portion to charity so free isn't an option.

What if I had something in the app where it said 40% of proceeds went to charity, that way apple would get 30% from the in-app purchase, I would keep roughly 30% and the charity would get 40%.

I am hoping that this would work because I am the one donating a portion of the proceeds and it is not an outright donation.

Also, would I be allowed to advertise "40% of proceeds go to charity" in the app?

Can not find any documentation on this, would really appreciate the help!

    Well you could donate some of the money you make selling the app to charity... – wateroverflow9102 Aug 2 '17 at 14:45
  • @Keyboard_Gamer he is asking whether or not Apple will allow his app to make this “proceeds go to charity” claim. – Trent Aug 3 '17 at 23:31
