Empower your customers to round up their checkout total and donate a few cents (always less than $1) to a charity you choose!
Round Up for charity is the landmark social good initiative used by Shopify merchants nationwide. This program adds a small checkbox above the “checkout” button on your store’s shopping cart page to allow your customers to round up their subtotal and direct that amount to charity.
Customers love the opportunity to be able to support non-profits in an easy and unintrusive way. We have seen about 95% of customers choose to participate!
Once you install the program everything automatically runs in the background. Donations are collected each day and a confirmation email is sent to you. You can track how many donations are collected in the back-end and we will send you a tax deductible confirmation letter that satisfies all IRS requirements.
Seamlessly integrate this program and let it run in the background. You never have to worry about installation or maintenance.
Once you install this app customers will be given the option to donate an additional few cents to the charity that the Shopify store owner selects. These donations will automatically be debited from your account each day as long as the total amount is at least $5. You will receive a confirmation email each time your account is debited to confirm we received the donations. We will also provide an annual summary of all donations that you can provide to your accountant which will satisfy all IRS requirements.
Each month, the Vesey Foundation will aggregate all the donations received and forward them to the partner charities that you have selected.
Note: the round up feature will appear on the cart page and will not appear on an ajax / slide out drawer. This feature will be provided in the next update.
We currently work with dozens of non-profit partners throughout the United States, including:
Is there a local organization your company wants to support? During the app integration you can choose a non-profit that you would like to direct your proceeds towards.
The Vesey Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that works to support and empower our non-profit partners. We work with small and medium-sized charities around the United States to provide grants and business development support. Thanks to our generous endowment, 100% of all funds that we raise through the Round Up and other programs goes directly to our non-profit partners.
