I’ve often sat and wondered “How could we get everyone to donate their Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts/[insert favorite coffee joint here] money for a month?
It would be an impossible task
First off, I’m a coffee addict myself, so asking me to give it up is just ridiculous – BUT what if there was a way to make that coffee purchase have an impact anyway? I’m listening…
Enter the Round Up app
The Round Up App has created a super simple way to donate your change from any purchase and donate that to your favorite nonprofit. The Round Up App allows you to automatically donate the change from your credit or debit card transactions. Once you create an account, you do not need to use the app while making a purchase. Just swipe your card as usual.
Getting started is easy:
- Pick a card to make the monthly donation from
- Link any other cards and accounts you want it to scan for purchases to round up.
You can even set monthly minimums and maximums if you have specific fundraising goals.
These donations provide revenue that is predictable and essential to our day-to-day operations. It actually allows us to spend less time focused on fundraising and more time thinking about the BIGGER impact we can make on families impacted by pediatric brain cancer.
Small change – Big impact!
Layla’s Legacy has set a goal of having 100 people sign up within the first 30 days – sound crazy? Well, we did the math. If 100 people set a maximum donation of $25/month, that’s $30,000/year. That would be 30 families we could help with living expenses or a research grant that could make a difference in finding a cure for pediatric brain cancer! That little bit of change can go a long way!
Would you rather donate directly? You can set up a reoccurring donation through our online system.
