How it works

Give change and give hope to disabled veterans.

When you round up your purchases, you make small donations that add up to big change. You set and control how much change you want to give each month (minimum of $9.99 per month), and every time you swipe your card, we’ll automatically round up your purchase to give hope to disabled veterans. It’s easy to make a big impact with a small amount of change each month!

Connect Your Credit Cards

First, connect the accounts and cards you use to make everyday purchases.

Make Purchases

Shop like normal, and we'll round up your purchases to the nearest dollar.

Donate Your Change

Your collected change will be automatically donated each month to help disabled veterans.

Frequently Asked Questions

Navigating the transition from service to civilian life is not always easy, but we believe no veteran should have to go at it alone. DAV provides free, professional assistance to more than 1 million veterans every year to connect them with the healthcare, disability, employment, education and financial benefits they have earned through military service. The past 100 years, DAV has submitted more than 11.7 million claims on their behalf. If you need help or know someone who needs help, contact your local DAV office.
When you link your eligible payment card and set your monthly giving level, DAV automatically “rounds up” your transactions to the next dollar amount and donates that spare change to veterans. For example, if you spend $17.83 at a restaurant on your linked debit card or credit card, DAV will add 17 cents to your purchase. The Round-Up Program runs in accordance with the following Terms of Service.
Yes you can! Many DAV donors choose to give by rounding up their purchases each month because it is a fun, easy way to support disabled veterans. However, if you’d like to make a one-time donation, you can select that option by clicking the “Sign Up Now” link above and choosing “One-Time.”
Yes! You will receive an automated receipt which will include the tax deductible language, after your donation is processed each month; please keep a copy for your records.
To ensure you can easily find and manage your monthly donations for tax purposes, DAV does not immediately deduct your spare change every time you swipe. Instead, we’ll tally up your change throughout the month and deduct it at the end of the month so you can easily track your donation.
Nope! That’s the great thing about rounding up: our system will automatically round up all of your purchases on your connected cards when you swipe until you’ve reached your giving target for the month.
In order to round up your spare change on certain payment cards, we simply need to know when you’ve swiped your card. DAV does not have access or the ability to view any of your transaction data. Your data is secured with our third-party program operator Harness, who does not use your personal data or information for any purposes other than verifying your transactions to accurately record the spare change you choose to give.
Certain eligible payment cards require you to confirm your account with the bank that issued your card. To ensure your bank data is kept secure, we integrate with financial institutions by using Plaid, the industry-leading bank integration service. We are restricted to working with the banks that Plaid has added to its service.
Yes you can! There is no limit to how many debit cards or credit cards you would like to use if you want to support the DAV across multiple eligible linked cards.
Yes. You can link any eligible active debit or credit card you frequently use. Note: Not all transactions made with your registered card (including PIN-based transactions, payment through a third-party digital wallet or payment app) can be monitored for eligibility to earn rewards. Do not use a PIN when making purchases if you want the transaction to be monitored. See Terms & Conditions for more details.

A monthly minimum donation of $9.99 will be charged to your linked card if any of the following conditions are met: (1) If your monthly round-up change accumulation is less than $10. (2) If we lose our connection to your registered card. This can occur if the bank associated with your card updates its security settings or if you change your bank log-in information. For example, if you change your credit or debit card account password, and do not update your DAV Spare Change account, we will be unable to track the transactions you made using that card to round up your change.
Not all transactions made with your registered card (including PIN-based transactions, payment through a third-party digital wallet or payment app) can be monitored for eligibility to earn rewards. Do not use a PIN when making purchases if you want the transaction to be monitored. See Terms & Conditions for more details.
