Help Make a Difference for Massage Therapy Foundation Projects

Making a difference for Massage Therapy Foundation (MTF) research, education, and community service projects just got easier. The MTF’s Spare Change program is an effortless way to round up your everyday credit card purchases and donate the small amounts of spare change to MTF. Make every purchase meaningful!

Micro donations of pennies are unlikely to hurt anyone’s pocketbook, but when many people work together, it really adds up. Set a maximum amount to fit your monthly budget for easy, longer-term involvement in creating social change. You’ll feel great knowing you are making a difference every time you shop.
