Our Change Matters program provides shoppers an opportunity to help local community-enrichment organizations by making small-change donations, which accumulate into a meaningful contribution for the recipient. The recipient changes monthly, with organizations chosen by a committee of Wedge staff.
Rounding up at the register is an easy way to make donations. During the month of April all register donations will go to support College Possible.
College Possible is making college admission and success possible for low-income students through an intensive curriculum of coaching and support. Since our founding, 98% of College Possible students have earned admission to college, 93% enroll, and students’ six-year college graduation rates are five times the national average for low-income college enrollees. To date, more than 1,500 College Possible students have earned college degrees.
Change Matters! Next time you’re at the checkout we hope you’ll consider “rounding-up”. If you prefer, you may donate a larger dollar amount at once by asking the cashier to add it to your total. All donations will appear on your itemized receipt and are tax-deductible. With your generous support, we can ensure that valuable organizations like these continue to work and grow in our community.
