Can’t stand to see Chicago students miss out on an opportunity to reach their full potential? Do something about it! Starting on October 10, passengers in Chicago can contribute by tapping Round Up & Donate in the Lyft app. Donations will go to Chance the Rapper’s New Chance Arts & Literature Fund, ensuring students at underfunded Chicago Public Schools have access to arts enrichment education.
“Through the New Chance Arts & Literature Fund, I’m committed to giving the kids in Chicago as much as I can. And now with Lyft’s Round Up & Donate, we can give them much more because the more we ride, the more we raise to bring more arts programs to Chicago Public Schools.” -Chance the Rapper
You can join in by going to ‘Settings’ in your app, tap ‘Round Up & Donate,’ choose CPS: The New Chance Fund as your cause, then take a ride. Opt-in once and Lyft will automatically round-up your fares to the nearest dollar and donate the difference.
The New Chance Arts & Literature Fund is just one of the causes you can support when you ride with Lyft. By tapping Round Up & Donate, the Lyft community has contributed to some important causes, like standing up for civil liberties with ACLU and supporting service men and women on active duty through the USO.
So, go ahead: Hit the button. Ride with Lyft. Be a changemaker.
