Plant Your Change Overview
Aspiration Partners, Inc. (“Aspiration”) and its subsidiaries, Aspiration Financial, LLC and Aspiration Card Services, LLC, offer separate Plant Your Change Services, as described below.
In general, Plant Your Change is a service which rounds-up all Eligible Transactions made on a daily basis (from $0.01 to $0.99), and sweeps the round-up amount as a Service Fee to a Plant Your Change Service account. Any Eligible Transaction that is not a whole-dollar transaction (i.e., $XX.01 to $XX.99) is rounded up for this Service. Whole-dollar transactions ($XX.00) are not considered transactions that are rounded up for this Service.
The Plant Your Change Service then plants a tree for each completed Eligible Transaction through a tree-planting partner preselected by Aspiration. The Plant Your Change Service Fee encompasses the cost of the tree through a preselected tree-planting partner and costs incurred by Aspiration and its subsidiaries in administering the Plant Your Change Service (including marketing and maintenance). The remainder of the Plant Your Change Service Fee beyond the costs described above, if any, is retained by Aspiration and/or its subsidiaries.
Tree Planting is ongoing and occurs periodically. Learn more about our tree planting process.
