A New Way to Give

ChangeIt is a card linked program that allows your donors to seamlessly round up all of their daily purchases on their credit cards for tax deductible donations.

​Participating consumers will create an account and link their credit or debit card. Every purchase on the linked credit/debit card will “round up” the transaction to the next dollar.

In return, donors get access to our massive network of retailers for discounts, perks and offers.  ​

You get consistent donations every month, your donors get amazing discounts. It's a real Win-Win!


Simple set-up, Consistent Performance

Unlike most traditional fundraising programs, the ChangeIt program is both simple to set up and easy to maintain indefinitely.

Ascend sets up your organization on the ChangeIt platform, and helps market this program to your existing list of donors as well as bring in brand new donors.

Donors need to go through a quick and easy sign-up/linking process, and then simply use their credit cards as they normally would.

At the end of every month, transactions are rounded up and a single donation is made to your charity. All this happens seamlessly and automatically, with no action required from the donor or from you!

All participating donors will have access to their account where they can see their full round up donation history. Year-end donation tax receipting reports will be provided to our partners as well.
