United Way is now a Charity Partner of ChangeIt!

[Originally Posted September 25, 2015]

United Way Leeds & Grenville is now a Charity Partner of ChangeIt®! This is a new way to give while making everyday purchases. ChangeIt lets you automatically round up your electronic purchases and donate the difference to us!

For example, if you pay $2.82 for a large coffee using your BMO MasterCard*, $0.18 will be rounded up, added to your other accumulated spare change round-ups and given to United Way Leeds & Grenville in one simple transaction each month. There is no change to your receipt or your purchasing experience. In fact the cashiers will never even know you are donating… but don’t let that stop you from telling them.

At the end of each month, a monthly donation notification will be sent directly to your inbox to let you know how much you contributed that month. At the end of each year, you’ll also receive an Official Donation Receipt for Income Tax Purposes from United Way Leeds & Grenville for every penny you donate!

If you’re a BMO MasterCard* holder and would like to support United Way Leeds & Grenville through ChangeIt, here’s how you can get started:

Sign up your BMO MasterCard* at
Select United Way Leeds & Grenville and set your rounding limits
Use your BMO MasterCard* and start making a difference

You can track your donations online, adjust your rounding preferences and even set a monthly maximum to ensure you never give more than you want. ChangeIt makes giving easy, and this small change can make a huge difference for the people of Leeds & Grenville who depend on the services and programs we fund.

Help us spread the word about this incredible opportunity for others to support United Way Leeds & Grenville with every swipe of their BMO MasterCard*! Tell your friends, your family and your social networks – it all starts with a little change!

We have added a blue button on the right side of your screen where you can click to go directly to our ChangeIt page to sign up!
