Cents 4 Change Initiative

Round up your spare change to the nearest dollar

Cents4Change is a program that was started in Mid 2016 and Launched October 2016 in Apache Junction, AZ. What started out as a pilot program with 2 businesses has currently grown into 10 businesses and continues to spread throughout Pinal County. The goal of Cents4Change is a simple round up campaign.

When you are out shopping at a local small business not only are you supporting that local business and their family. You will now have the option to round up your transaction to the nearest Dollar amount. That rounded up change will then come back to UWPC. Once a quarter we will ask our local non-profits and partner agencies to submit a grant application, so they can receive funds to address their local areas of concern.

The wonderful thing about Cents4Change is that you as a local resident shop at a local business and support them, In turn by your rounded up change you can support a local agency who is helping support our local community members. The best way to think of Cents4Change is you're recycling your spare change back into the community.

Do you own a business or location that could help support Cents4Change? If so, please contact Braden Biggs at 520-302-4682 or at braden.biggs@unitedwayofpc.org.
