Lyft is committed to creating positive change for the communities we serve, and we’re excited to help raise funds for Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario Foundation. Now, you can now use your ride to help improve the health of children in Ontario.
Want to make a difference? Opt in to round up and donate your fares to CHEO, and for every ride you take in January, Lyft will match your contribution — up to $10,000. On average, riders only contribute a few dollars, but when we all pitch in, it can really make an impact.
Here’s how to get started:
Tap Menu in your Lyft app
Then, tap Donate
Choose CHEO to round up to the nearest dollar and donate the difference
“We are so proud to partner with CHEO as our Round Up & Donate partner in Ottawa. The impact of CHEO is felt by every family, in every home and in every neighbourhood in our community,” said Rob Woodbridge, Market Manager for Lyft in Ottawa. “Now Ottawans can easily donate to CHEO one ride at a time and contribute to the great work they do."
The more Ottawa residents ride and donate, the more we raise, allowing the CHEO Foundation to support the work of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
“The CHEO Foundation is thrilled to be a charitable partner with Lyft in Ottawa. When you use the Lyft app, you are signalling that you need someone’s help to get you to your destination. We are like that, too, and we rely on donors to help us on our journey to help 500,000 kids each year,” said Kevin Keohane, President and CEO of the CHEO Foundation. “When you Round Up & Donate to CHEO – you’re helping to take us where we need to go. Thanks to Lyft passengers for sharing the ride with us!”
