Rounding Up to the Nearest Dollar for Charity

April 05, 2017

This week's Wise Giving Wednesday article focuses on a supermarket or other store offering the opportunity to donate your 'change' to charity. It works like this - If your purchase amount at a participating store comes to $25.40 and you agree to this type of donation, your purchase becomes $26.00 and $.60 is donated to a charity. According to the article, this donation option is becoming more and more popular. Round-It-Up-America, whose mission is to provide the platform for each and every one of us to donate change and collectively raise millions of dollars for the many charitable organizations and programs that support our communities across America, is on board to include the restaurant industry.
