About Round Up & Donate
Round Up & Donate offers an optional feature for riders to round up a ride fare and donate the difference to a worthy organization.
For example: if you have a $12.75 fare, Lyft will round up the total to $13. The difference of $0.25 will be donated to the Lyft partner organization of your choice.
Donations aren’t included in upfront prices. You can see your donation on your ride receipt after paying for a ride.
For rides in the US - If the organization you donate to qualifies for tax deductions, so will your donation.
For riders in Canada - Donations made through Round Up & Donate aren’t tax-deductible.
How to donate
To opt-in for Round Up & Donate:
  1. Tap ‘Donate’ from the Lyft app menu.
  2. Select an organization for donations.
  3. Tap ‘Start donating.’
From the ‘Donate’ tab, you can see the available organizations to donate to.
A few rides don't qualify for donations. These include:
  1. Rides taken on your business profile
  2. Rides paid in full with Lyft gift cards or promo codes
  3. Rides with even fares. For example: a ride fare amount of $10.00 won't round up
You can stop donating anytime by tapping ‘Donate’, then sliding the donate button to the left to ‘Stop donating.’
Organizations featured in Round Up & Donate
Lyft proactively selects nonprofit organizations to feature in Round Up & Donate. These organizations are selected from  among our existing suite of partners and based on our key areas of focus.
We don't accept unsolicited requests for Round Up & Donate partnerships.
Lyft reserves the right to add or remove partner organizations as we see fit. Our goal is to support a diverse group of nonprofits and organizations.
If you're currently opted-in to donate to an organization, and we remove that organization from Round Up & Donate, you'll be notified in advance of their removal.
You'll be able to select a new nonprofit to donate to. If you don't actively select a new nonprofit, you'll be removed from Round Up & Donate and will no longer be donating on each ride.
