With our simple charity fundraising tool you can easily donate to the organizations you support.
Every purchase you make with your registered credit/debit cards generates a roundup (to the nearest dollar) to benefit the charity that matters most to you.
The new generation of fundraising.
With every transaction, round up your change to fund the organizations and causes that matter most to you
Donate Your Change is dedicated to re-energizing charity fundraising efforts for non-profit organizations engaged in making a positive difference in our culture, both in the US and Canada. We are particularly interested in supporting charities that provide food and shelter for the poor, find cures for diseases, and those that provide encouragement and vocational training for the under-employed or unemployed.
If your favourite charity has not yet heard about the benefits of Donate Your Change, be sure to have them check us out on social media or provide us with their info and we will gladly contact them and share the excitement.

Will I receive a tax receipt?
Yes. Only Registered Charities are able to use the Donate Your Change system of giving.
Is my bank account information secure?
Your bank account information is encrypted and secure, as well as all secure online banking transactions. Our funding tool has been integrated with the Finicity® database. No donor bank account information is stored on our company server or by the organization receiving the donations.
Can I turn off or set limits on my roundups?
Yes, the donor has total control over how much to round up and can turn this off and on at any time by setting the roundup daily limit to zero.
Can I see my roundups in real time?
Yes. The donor can see the bank transactions and associated roundup amounts in real time. The receiving organization can also track each roundup donation made to them by their donors, however, the location and purchase details will not be shown.
How will I track these donations?
All roundups will show under the roundups tab in your Donate Your Change giving account. You can see more detail per transaction under Settings/Round Up Accounts. You are always in control of your giving and make changes as often as you wish.
How do I know my money goes to the organization I’ve chosen to support?
You can receive statements from the organization(s) you support that show the amount you donated through your Donate Your Change RoundUp Giving account. The frequency of these reports is solely dependent on the accounting practices of the receiving organization.
I’m already giving to several organizations. Why should I give more?
This system is not meant to replace existing giving programs. By giving “loose change,” you participate with other roundup givers in creating a big impact for the organization(s) you support and provide for their latest initiatives.
Will my personal information be given to any other/third parties?
Your information will only be shared with the organizations to which you donate. Information about your spending habits and where you spend is not transparent or stored or sold to any outside agencies.
What kind of user experience can I expect?
Donate Your Change RoundUp Giving offers complete control. It’s a secure, convenient, flexible giving platform and you have complete control of your giving. We believe roundup users will appreciate the ease and overall impact to the organizations they support.
How are the donations generated?
When a donor links a debit/credit card to their profile and designates an approved organization to receive their roundup donations, a small amount (to the nearest dollar) on every transaction will be added to their roundup account. Everywhere your card is accepted, the roundups are generated. Every online transaction will also generate a roundup donation.
Can I select more than one debit card or credit card to make donations with?
Yes, you can link many cards and accounts. Our current system ties over 18,000 institutions to our funding tool. While there are always changes and updates being made, we are connected with the majority of institutions and now Paypal.
How will these small donations show on my bank statements?
To keep this simple and straight forward, there are two functions that happen within your giving account. First, all the cards and bank accounts that are linked, will generate roundups on each transaction. You will see these in the Round Ups Tab of your profile. Second, once these Round Ups add up to more than $20, they are paid out from your Payment Method card to your charity. You will see these donations under the My Donations tab. This keeps the bank fees as low as possible and your donations will all show on just one Card Statement.
