Every penny counts!
Update: Thanks to your help, we donated $4,000 to the Oregon Food Bank!
Every little bit can help, especially in times when there’s so much need. For example, the Oregon Food Bank has seen a 20% - 70% increase in need for food assistance across the state.
This is why we’re offering a twist on our Round Up & Save program, called Round Up & Give! Round Up & Give will work the same way: it will round up your purchases to the nearest dollar and donate that money to local food banks.
How Round Up & Give Works
Whenever you make a purchase, Round Up & Give will round your purchase to the nearest dollar and deposit that money to the Oregon Food Bank so it can be distributed among local foodbanks across the state.
Here’s what this might look like in a day:
|Purchase Amount||Next Whole Dollar||Amount to Savings|
|Total end of day deposit||$0.92|
That’s almost $1 for charity in one day!
And it’s no small donation: according to the Oregon Food Bank, $1 translates to 3 meals.
The best part is: Northwest Community Credit Union will match donations up to $20,000! This could mean 60,000 more meals for Oregonians who need them.
Together, our donations can help those in our communities who are struggling, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Round Up & Give ends on June 30, 2020. After it’s over, your checking account will revert to how it was before you enrolled in the Round Up & Give promotion.
If you have questions, give us a call at (800) 452-9515.
Disclosure: Upon enrollment, we will round-up your Northwest Community Credit Union (NWCU) debit card purchases to the nearest dollar and transfer the difference from your checking once each day in a single transfer. If you do not have sufficient funds available in your checking account, or if any transaction has overdrawn your checking account, we will not round-up daily purchases and we will not make the transfer for that day. Round Up & Give is only available on debit cards linked to NWCU consumer checking accounts. Round Up & Give is currently not available on NWCU business checking accounts. Funds collected through this campaign will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank by July 31, 2020. The Round Up & Give service will be available from May 1, 2020 – June 30, 2020. At the end of the promotion, member will be re-directed to the Round Up & Save program; if member did not previously have Round Up & Save, we will remove it from your account.
