Lyft partners with PCH to raise funds

Rideshare company Lyft is now giving Valley residents the ability to “round up” their fare for a local cause.

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Archie Bradley makes baseball necklaces with a patient at Phoenix Children’s Hospital on July 31. Bradley was visiting the hospital’s Child Life Zone to help announce the new Lyft donation program with PCH (submitted photo).

The Round Up & Donate feature inside the Lyft app will allow passengers to have their fare rounded up to the nearest dollar and the difference donated to Phoenix Children’s Hospital. By opting in, Lyft passengers will enable any Lyft ride, on any day, to support children and families in need.

“It’s incredible to consider the collective power that thousands of local Lyft riders can have in donating each time they ride,” said Steve Schnall, SVP and chief development officer of the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation. “We are excited to see the effect as this partnership rolls out, and the impact the funds raised will have on our patients and their families.”

“Since the moment Lyft arrived in Phoenix, we knew that this community was extremely generous and supportive of the region’s nonprofit organizations,” said Lyft Southwest Region General Manager Drena Kusari. “We are constantly inspired by that kindness, and have built dozens of partnerships with area nonprofits.”

To opt in, passengers can select Round Up & Donate in the Settings tab of the Lyft app. Once the setting is live and Phoenix Children’s Hospital selected, each fare will automatically round up. To learn more about Lyft’s Round Up & Donate, visit: https://www.lyft.com/round-up.
