The charitable donations are provided by participating businesses when you shop with your Local First card. Each time you use your card, at a participating business, a percentage of your purchase amount will be donated by the merchant to your favorite charity. 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 $.25, $.50, or $1.00, and donating 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.
