The RoundUp App allows you to donate the change from your credit or debit card purchases to support a nonprofit you care about. Our mission is making generosity as effortless and impactful as possible, and helping organizations share the positive impact they are making in the world. The RoundUp App is used by hundreds of nonprofits, from large international organizations to small one-man or one-woman shops, across the country.
