Running a small business, you already know how important it is to build a relationship with your community. Likely, you’re dependent on locals for their return business, word of mouth, and more. We’ve posted on this blog before about the importance of giving back to your community, or sponsoring a community event, but now we have something new to share.
With just a few clicks, you can now install Round Up for Schools, a free app that gives your customers the opportunity to round up their sale to the nearest dollar, and donate that amount to a K-12 school of your choice.
Round Up for Schools is powered by DonorsChoose.org, the leading nonprofit for giving to public schools. The school you select will be notified of your support, so the school community will know to patronize your business.
As a bonus, these gifts made through DonorsChoose.org will be doubled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Concerned about how the money is spent? All projects requested by teachers and schools have been vetted. Once a particular goal is met, DonorsChoose purchases the requested materials and delivers them to the school.
Round Up for Schools is a great way to build a meaningful relationship in your community, and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Install it today.
