Be a "Cointributor"
Each time you buy groceries, fill up your gas tank, or make that online purchase, the spare change from your transaction can help our neighbors in need – and you don’t even have to think about it! Cointributors round up their everyday purchases to the nearest dollar, thereby donating the difference to EAC Network to help further our mission of empowering, assisting, and caring for children, families, and seniors in crisis.

The security of your information is of highest concern. We entrust enterprise-scale third parties to handle all sensitive financial data. Bank login credentials and account numbers are never stored on our system. All data is secured with 128-bit SSL encryption. Multi-factor authentication and personal identifiers ensure unwanted access is prevented and your personal data is never exchanged, licensed, or sold. All transactions are anonymized to ensure privacy.
Stripe, a Level 1 PCI-compliant payments gateway, handles all the financial transactions. Stripe’s fees are 2.2% + 30 cents for credit card donations and 0.8% for ACH donations. This fee is taken out of the donations delivered to EAC Network.
Roundups are tallied until they reach $5. Once $5 is reached, the donation is triggered. This way, your bank statement doesn’t become overwhelmed with micro-charges.
You will receive automatic monthly statements of your monthly contributions to the email address connected to your account. At the end of the year, you may print a year-end receipt of your annual Cointributor donations to EAC Network by logging in and visiting your settings. Please consult your authorized legal counsel as to the deductibility of your contributions, as the rules vary state by state.
At the moment, you can only add one payment account for roundups. However, you can easily link another account or card by creating an additional user account with a new email address.
You can pause contributions at any time by logging into your account and visiting your donation settings. You can also set a monthly limit, at which point roundup donations will halt once your your contributions reach your monthly cap.
Logging into your bank account provides the system the ability to identify your purchases and subsequently round them up to the nearest dollar. Without this information, there is no way to calculate your digital spare change. Your bank login credentials are never stored by the system. Logging in simply allows the system to connect with the purchasing account of your choice.
