Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any setup costs?

No! We want to eliminate financial risk for our partner nonprofits, so we perform the setup for free. However, we do ask that organizations who sign up to use the app actually use it! To that end, we ask partners to sign up at least 10 people to give to them within the first 30 days. Our team is here to help you with that initial goal – we will do whatever it takes to make you successful.

Is the RoundUp App secure?

The Round Up App works with leading companies behind the scenes to keep data secure.

  • Transactions are processed by Stripe, the same payment processor used by Facebook, Habitat for Humanity, NPR, and hundreds of other major organizations.
  • The connection between the app and credit or debit card accounts provides a read only history of transactions; it does not allow the app to change the account or move funds. This link is established using Plaid’s API, which is the same technology used by apps like Venmo.
  • No credit card or bank credentials are ever stored on the app or on our servers, they are provided directly to Stripe and Plaid. This way, even if the RoundUp App service was compromised, there would be no credentials or credit card numbers to steal since we do not have access to that data.

How will my nonprofit receive the donations?

The donation takes the form of a credit card transaction and goes directly from the user to your nonprofit organization.

We use Stripe as our payment processor. During setup, each nonprofit creates a Stripe account where donations will flow into at the end of each month. The organization can then transfer the funds to their bank account as desired.

As a result, the donation comes directly from the donor and they receive the credit for it.

How can we thank donors?

At the end of each month, we provide your organization with a report detailing the name, email address, and amount given by each donor that month. You can use this information to send thank you messages or tax deduction receipts.

When and how often are round ups donated?

The app keeps track of each user’s transactions and the amount to round up. At the end of the month, the app sums all of these round ups and makes a donation for the total amount directly from the user to your nonprofit.

Can you help us market the app to our donors?

Yes! We will work closely with your nonprofit to help you get donors to sign up with the RoundUP app and start contributing to your organization. After setting up a new organization, we typically have a strategy session with the development, donor relations, and marketing teams to share best practices and put a strategy in place. Our Customer Success team is here to help with market however they can, free of charge.

What are the qualifications for nonprofits?

To participate in the RoundUp App you must:

  1. Be a nonprofit organization in the United States
  2. Possess valid 501(c)(3) status from the IRS
  3. Not promote hatred, violence or racism

The only other qualification is that once set up, you roll out the app! We require organizations to sign up at least 10 donors in the first 30 days. We have found that putting this requirement in place helps folks prioritize building monthly support, and ultimately benefits everyone in the long-run.

Our organization is fiscally sponsored – can we participate?

Yes. Fiscally sponsored organizations are eligible to participate in the RoundUp App. You can speak with our team about the best way to accomplish this given the structure of your organization. Oftentimes the donations will flow through your fiscal sponsor but be designated for your specific work, so the the fiscal sponsor can disburse these funds to you.
