How does Change Commerce® empower customers to create impact?

How does Change Commerce® work?

Change Commerce® partners with your favorite retailers who want to donate a minimum of 1% of their sales to the charities you support. At checkout, you will be prompted to select a charity to receive a donation from your eligible purchases; you don’t pay any extra, and the retailer makes the donation, powered by ShoppingGives.

With Change Commerce® you can feel confident that every time you buy from your favorite stores, you are truly making a positive social impact.

What do I need to do to donate?

All you need to do to donate is buy from our partner retailers online. Each time you checkout, you will be presented with a search tool to find the charity you would like to benefit from your purchase. A minimum of 1% of your purchase (before tax) goes to the charity of your choosing, and you don’t pay any extra!

Can I donate to any charity I want?

Yes! As long as the charity is a registered 501c3 nonprofit and in good standing with the IRS, you can donate to them. In addition, we work with our Change Commerce® retail partners to help curate a featured list of charities that align with the vision of the company, so that you are always able to easily support causes that make big impacts.

Can I track how much I’ve donated?

Yes. Sign up with ShoppingGives here to track all of the contributions retailers have made based on your purchases through one single account.

How can I create a ShoppingGives account?

You can create a ShoppingGives account by signing up with your contact information here.
