About this app

Coin Up is a revolutionary mobile app that "rounds up and donates” your everyday credit/debit card transactions to your chosen charity each month.

Turn your everyday purchases into meaningful change!

How it works:
1. Select a cause or nonprofit you are passionate about by name, zip code, or category.
(If you don’t see your cause, let us know and we will make every effort to sign them up!)

2. Select a monthly goal/limit.

3. Choose a "One Time Donation", a Fixed Monthly Amount", or "Round Up & Donate"

4. Link your regular debit or credit card to automatically send your donations directly to your charity of choice each month.

5. If you choose to “Round Up & Donate" here's how it works:

After confirming your Coin Up account, just go about your usual spending. Let's say you purchase your morning coffee for $3.25, the app will "round up" this amount by "$.75" to $4. While the "round up" does not happen at the actual point of sale, the $.75 is added to to the aggregated "spare change" calculations throughout the month. At the end of each month, your card will be charged for the total "spare change" accumulated (up to the limit you set, $5 minimum) and sent directly to your selected charity.

6. You will receive a monthly snapshot that reflects the donation you made to your charity - whether it was school supplies for 10 children, 15 family toiletry kits, 5 days of counseling for our veterans, or other countless examples of what your everyday “spare change” did for our communities!

7. At the end of the year, you will receive a tax donation receipt from your organization that confirms your total annual donation.

Why it works:
1. Security: We use the highest level of bank-approved, encrypted technologies and multi-factor authentication (MFA).

2. Transparency: All our nonprofit organizations meet industry standards for quality and commitment to supporting their missions*.

3. Your Direct Impact: Receive a monthly snapshot that shows how your donation is making an impact, and an annual tax receipt for your full contributions**.

4. Your Control: Change your charity or monthly goal at any time!

Download today and make change happen!

The fine print:
*Coin Up qualifies all its nonprofits, however nonprofits are solely responsible for their actions.

**Consult with your tax advisor to ensure your donations are deductible.

Seemed to work for a week. Showed transactions. Now it shows no transactions. I tried to contact support. That doesn't seem to respond. Tried to delete my account. It asked if I was sure, then seemed to do nothing else. I'm not comfortable with a buggy app having access to my checking account and not being able to contact support. I'm just giving directly to the charity. Coin up is not earning their 15% commission.

Works well to donate with rounding up purchases. Helps make a difference the more I spend and allows for a monthly cap so I don't get blindsided.
