    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:
    • Rides taken on your business profile
    • Rides paid in full with Lyft gift cards or promo codes
    • 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.’

    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.
