Micro donations

The new generation of fundraising

 

Our times have changed and so has fundraising, and historic methods are less effective. A new platform is here to provide your patrons a method that is dynamic, and fits their lifestyle.

Donate Your Change is dedicated to re-energize charity fundraising efforts for nonprofits engaged in making a positive difference in our culture, both in the US and Canada. We are particularly interested in supporting charities that;

  • offer food and shelter for the disadvantaged
  • provide encouragement and vocational training for the under-employed or unemployed
  • engage kids and teens in developing life skills
  • help bring a sense of community and support to its neighbours

With our roundup tool unique to the charity fundraising industry, funds are generated without requiring supporters to change anything about their day-to-day activities. And revenue is created 365 days a year. All donations are tax receiptable and each charity is provided access to all their related donation history and detail in order to simplify their tax receipt process.

We believe small change can produce a big impact. Charity fundraising no longer has to be restricted to those with large bank accounts because virtually anyone at any income level can participate as a supporting patron using our program.

The DYCC tool rounds up everyday banking transactions made by your donors to the nearest dollar when they link it to their credit/debit card or bank account. These micro donations are then used to fund their chosen nonprofit. Patrons can control the total amount donated by setting a daily limit and they can link multiple accounts including PayPal. This helps eliminate donor fatigue for both the supporter and the organization as they simply set it and forget it while roundups occur automatically with every transaction.

Welcome. The new generation of fundraising.

Organization FAQs

What are the costs and who pays?

With each donation, your organization will receive an 87.5% flow through, with the balance paying for banking/card fees, support & operations of the funding tool, and our Canadian marketing office (this includes compiling Tax Receipts on behalf of your organization).

Also, the one time fee of $475 CDN is collected once your organization application is accepted, to cover tool integration costs and onboarding support tools.

What is required for us to apply?

We require the contact information, details of your organization, your CRA number for charitable status, the purpose of your organization, and the decision maker ultimately responsible.

Aside from basic information about your organization, there is also our Terms and Conditions acceptance.

What kind of organization does this work best with?

By design, this funding tool will be a great fit with organizations that are built on a community of supporters and those who are needing to establish a more dynamic giving base.

What features make this Funding Tool unique?

This funding tool allows donors to set daily limits, track activity, and make changes at any time. Once a donor sets up his/her profile, the organization will receive donations based on each transaction.

How long is the application process?

Your application will be reviewed within three to five business days and our response will follow which will detail how to proceed to complete registration.

Once we are registered, how does this work?

Registration will connect your organization with our giving system; provide the tools needed to reach your donors with an effective plan; provide on-boarding support documents, presentation options to engage your supporters in a variety of methods, and more. (also included is a custom built Micro-site as shown in this Live example)

Will this displace our current donor giving plans?

Donate Your Change will easily add to your current donor giving plans and provide NEW funding to reach more of your organizational strategic objectives. As this happens on a daily basis, automatically, request for donor giving can be focused elsewhere. This allows organizations to thrive and not be so focused on just surviving.

When will our organization receive the funds from our donors?

Donate Your Change will issue collected funds to each organization once per month.
