Round Up & Donate

Lyft’s Round Up & Donate feature lets you round up a ride fare to the nearest whole dollar and then donate the difference to a worthy cause.

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.

Heads up: If you're in Canada, see our Canada-specific info on Round Up & Donate.

About Round Up & Donate

To see the causes you can donate to, tap ‘Donate’ in the Lyft app menu or go to Round Up & Donate. This feature is completely optional; you will never be forced to donate.

Donations aren’t included in upfront prices. You’ll see your donation on your ride receipt after paying for a ride.

We'll send you an annual report with all your tax deductible donations for tax purposes. Whether your donations are tax deductible depends on the cause. If the organization qualifies for tax deductions, then so will your donation.
