Change For Change Register Round-up Program


The Donation Program Formerly Known As Bag It Forward

Why are donations and bag refunds linked together? We hear you and want to make our charitable and environmental programs work the way you want them to. So, we’re officially pulling them apart, and making some adjustments to help local non-profits even more. Since Bag It Forward’s inception, in April of 2017, you’ve raised over $16,500, one dime at a time! That’s 25 individual non-profit organizations (and counting) benefiting from your generosity. We think we can do even better, without tying them to your reusable bag refunds. That means a donation is even easier on those days when you forget your bags or simply don’t need any, and that you can get your refunds back, or give a smaller amount if you choose.

Introducing Change for Change. You’ve seen this before, it’s a simple set-up; at the end of your transaction, you can elect to “round-up” to the nearest whole dollar amount. When you round-up, all of the additional change from your transaction goes toward the Change for Change organization for that month. Many people at New Leaf are involved in the selection and will pre-select one non-profit organization for each month. Any 501c3 organization is welcome to and encouraged to apply!
