How Do I Help When I Round Up?

Our customers who choose to Round Up their purchase to the next dollar amount are having an even greater impact on the lives of their neighbors.

Funds generated through Round Up do not cover organizational administrative costs. Instead the funds directly support programs such as Reality Check and SCSEP.

Visit the Round Up page for more information.
