Do you ride with Lyft? Donate to United Way with every ride
Through LyftUp, Lyft riders can round up their ride payments to the nearest whole dollar, and donate the difference to a worthy organization. For example, if you have a $12.75 payment, Lyft will round up the total to $13. The difference of $0.25 will be donated to the organization of your choice. You can now select United Way as your charitable organization within the Lyft app to support Ride United. Just tap Donate in the Lyft app menu and select United Way.
