Education crowdfunding nonprofit DonorsChoose.org today announced a new app to help merchants that utilize the CloverⓇ point-of-sale (POS) platform support public schools in their local communities. The Round Up for Schools app, available in the Clover App Market, offers customers the option to round up their purchases and donate the change to nearby schools chosen by the business owner. When customers choose to round up, their change is automatically applied to a classroom project request on DonorsChoose.org. To celebrate the launch, donations made through the Round Up for Schools app will be matched by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The Clover point-of-sale platform functions as a complete business-management platform enabling merchants to maximize their operating efficiencies and grow, while allowing customers to pay using a debit/credit card, in addition to mobile payment options such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Samsung Pay. The Clover App Market gives merchants that use Clover the ability to download apps that help them run their business directly onto their Clover devices.
The Round Up for Schools app is the first Clover app that allows merchants to run a POS campaign to support schools in their local communities.
To download the app on a Clover device, select “More Tools” from the main menu, and click the “Round Up for Schools” app in the “New and Noteworthy” section. Once a merchant downloads the app, they will be able to select a nearby school to support when a customer rounds up their purchase. The matching donation from the Gates Foundation will happen automatically, while funds last.
