Where does the money for charitable donations come from?

The money for the charitable donations is provided by the businesses that you shop at with your Local First card. Each time you use your card, a percentage of your purchase amount will be donated by the merchant to your favorite charity. You do not pay anything for the charitable donations; they’re free for you! All you need to do is select the charity you’d like the merchant to donate to on your behalf.

 If you choose to participate in the Round-Up program, you will be rounding up your purchases to the nearest $1, $5, or $10, and donating your money to the charity or your choice. Your donations as part of this Round-Up program will be in addition to the donation that merchants pay with each transaction.
