ChangeIt® - Easily Donate your Spare Change to Scouting

SCOUTS CANADA COUNCILS IN CENTRAL ESCARPMENT, GREATER TORONTO, SHINING WATERS AND WHITE PINE JOIN CHANGEIT® AS A DIRECT MARKETING PARTNER

~AN EASY WAY TO DONATE SMALL CHANGE TO MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE~

- Now MEMBERS, FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF SCOUTS CANADA IN CENTRAL ONTARIO can be charitable every day by simply making every day purchases –

TORONTO- March 18, 2015 - Every year, millions of Canadians open up their hearts and wallets to donate money to the charities of their choice. In fact, a recent survey found that 71 per cent of Canadians donated to charity last year. More than half said they wish they could have given more and 24 per cent said they would have given more if it was convenient to do so. Now they have no excuse...

ChangeIt® is an innovation in fundraising and acts like an automated spare change jar for charitable donations. By using the online portal, Scouting members, families and friends can choose to round up their cashless transactions to the nearest dollar amount and direct it to Scouting in Central Escarpment, Greater Toronto, Shining Waters and White Pine Councils. Every time a customer makes a purchase using their BMO Mastercard or their DUCA, Mennonite or Ukrainian Credit Union Debit Card, their small change makes a big difference for a cause they care about. Plus, we’re expecting more Banks (Credit & Debit Card) to be joining ChangeIt® soon!

ChangeIt® allows donors to make a pledge, not a payment. Users decide how much they wish to donate by setting a monthly minimum and maximum amount and an online portal allows them to track how much they have given. A tax receipt will be issued at the end of the year for every cent donated. Even better – it’s free to join!

How does it work? It is so simple…

  • Customer spends $2.82 for a coffee and pays for it using a credit card OR Credit Union Debit card
  • Based on the pre-selected rounding preferences, an $0.18 pledge is calculated
  • This $0.18, along with other purchase roundups, is accrued monthly and forwarded directly to the Council (via COSC) as one aggregate amount

Please take this opportunity to tell everyone about Scouting in Central Ontario and our new partnership with ChangeIt®. Using ChangeIt® is akin to dropping your spare change into a container at the checkout but brings this into the future through your favourite payment card. Whether buying your morning coffee or grabbing some groceries…ChangeIt® enables everyone to automatically donate to Scouting in Central Ontario.
