November 21, 2022 Bentonville, Arkansas — Walmart announced the launch of a new fundraising campaign to support local organizations across the country by donating up to $5 million to nonprofits this holiday season as part of its Spark Good initiative.
Between November 25th and December 25th, retailers are offering customers the opportunity to round up their purchases and donate to their favorite charities while shopping on Walmart.com and the Walmart app. Walmart is able to pay more for every dollar because it matches customer donations one-for-one, up to $1 million ($2 million total including customer donations). Spark Good Round Up, launched this fall, allows customers to choose an approved nonprofit to donate to and easily set up a recurring roundup in the Walmart app or online.
To encourage customers and nonprofits to participate in the campaign, Walmart will reward up to $3 million in donations when up to 3,000 nonprofits receive 20 or more Spark Good Roundup donations. Award a grant of $1,000.
Joining is easy. When customers check out while shopping online or on the app, they are asked to search for their favorite charity that raises donations. Customers can also visit Walmart.com/SparkGood and search for their charity of choice to receive Roundup donations.
“Last year, Walmart and the Walmart Foundation gave more than $1.5 billion in cash and in-kind donations to organizations around the world,” said Erin Hoag, associate and senior director of customer engagement at Walmart. “Giving is in our DNA and it’s clear that our customers feel the same way. With this $5 million campaign of his, we’re not only expanding customer giving through matching donations and grants. , we also let our customers tell us where they want to spend their money.”
The Spark Good Round Up campaign has large and small nonprofits for customers to choose from. However, if you can’t find a local cause that the customer would like to support, you can send the referral link directly to the 501(c)(3) of your choice.
Walmart’s latest giving initiative, Spark Good, brings together retailers’ non-profit tools under one umbrella. From local grant opportunities to most-needed item registries, Spark Good gives nonprofits a convenient place to work with Walmart to make a difference in their local communities.
Together, we can do Spark Good this holiday season. For more information, please visit the following URL: Walmart.org/SparkGood.
