With Elevations Local Change, you can donate the change from your debit card purchases to help your community. Monthly giving from people like you makes a big impact in the community. Funds go to Elevations Foundation for local worthy causes. Because we’re only truly prosperous together.

How It Works

If you have an Elevations checking account, you can be a part of Elevations Local Change

When you enroll in Elevations Local Change, transactions made with your debit card are rounded up to the nearest dollar. The change is then donated to Elevations Foundation.

Your rounded up change goes to Elevations Foundation

Each day, the total change from the previous day’s transactions will be securely deposited to your Elevations Foundation as a single tax-deductible donation.*

Elevations Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides scholarships to college-bound Colorado high school seniors and community grants to local non-profit organizations. The Foundation has donated over $1.5 million in community resources since 2010. Elevations Credit Union is proud to support Elevations Foundation.

Set a monthly donation cap

When you enroll, you have the option to set a monthly donation cap. You may change the cap at any time.
