In celebration of this giving season, we’re bringing you a special RoundUp challenge!
If 25 new donors sign up to give to our organization through the app in the designated 25 days, roundup will give SEA $1,000. Nothing says holiday cheer like a little extra bonus! 🎉
Any new donor who signs up to give to SEA through the RoundUp App between 12:01am CT on Tuesday, November 27th (Giving Tuesday) and 5:00pm CT on Friday, December 21st will count towards this challenge. The challenge ends at 5pm CT on the Friday before Christmas so no one has to stay up until midnight.
Our only request is that you ask your friends and family (potential donors) to sign up via text message! Historically this has been a very successful way to gain donors for our nonprofits, so we want you to give it a try during this challenge!
One approach that works very well is as follows:
- First, text: Quick question for you!
- Then, after the person responds, reply with: SEA just launched a new app that lets people support us by donating their change. We’re trying to sign up 25 new change donors in 25 days, which will earn us a $1,000 bonus – I was wondering if you’d be willing to join? http://roundupapp.com/download
What is the RoundUp App?
We’ve recently partnered with a program called the RoundUp App that allows you to “round up” the change from your debit or credit card purchases and donate it to us monthly.
So for example, if you were to spend $5.50 at a store, it would be rounded up to $6.00 and the $0.50 difference would be donated to us. There is also an option to set a monthly giving cap, so even if you already contribute financially in other ways, you can still join RoundUp and set a limit that you are comfortable with. We would be honored if you would commit to give in this way as it provides another way for us to continue our cause of providing our students with an amazing academic and social learning environment.
