Round Up

At key times throughout the year, JCPenney invites customers to round up their in-store or online purchases to the nearest dollar to JCPenney Cares. When you round up your JCPenney purchases, you’ll help support local and national programs focused on providing resources and opportunities to support kids beyond the classroom. Contributions will be donated to JCPenney Cares who will then re-grant these funds to support relevant programs of local and national partners.
