What's the purpose of the expansion?
In the five years since MPFL was founded, we've focused on the highest standard of care for our rescues, in vet care, feed, housing and pasture, maintenance care and socialization. We can foresee issues in the future that may compromise that standard if we don't act today.
We know that a shocking 90 percent of pet mini pigs will be abandoned before their second birthday, while adoption of mini pigs from our rescue stalls at less than 10 percent. The need for mini pig rescue will only grow over time.
Our once green and lush 20 acre parcel of land has become sparse, and we know that in less than two years this acreage will be cleared of all grazeable material, biodiversity and potential for productivity. New and greener pastures for the pigs afford the opportunity to regrow our overgrazed pasture without disrupting natural and essential pig rooting and foraging behavior. As we renew the forage, we also reduce the microorganism load that can build over time, compromising the health of our pigs.
Why is funding so critical, right now?
Rural land prices are rising rapidly in many parts of Texas, even as available land is increasingly scarce nationwide, driven in large part by the pandemic and resulting societal changes. At this pivotal moment, My Pig Filled Life has been offered the chance to buy not just any land, but the contiguous 47 acres - provided that we complete the transaction within two years. That's why we're asking for a commitment from each of you, our supporters, to pledge $1.50 each month for the next two years.
Are my donations tax-deductible?
Yes! Donations made through RoundUp App are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law, just like any other donation to My Pig Filled Life, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
How will my donations appear on my card statement?
Your RoundUps will appear on your monthly statement as a single donation to the nonprofit you've selected. The only exception is if you choose to give an additional one-time gift to the nonprofit.
Why do you need my bank details?
RoundUp App requests 2 pieces of information from a donor: a card/debit card and a bank account. The card is used as a funding source to charge your donations at the end of each month. The bank integration is used to calculate the RoundUps - how much spare change you're donating from your purchases.
NOTE: RoundUp App is provided READ-ONLY access to your account in order to calculate the amount of the RoundUp donations. However, you DO NOT have to provide this access to donate through the RoundUp App. You can simply specify a monthly donation and choose not to continue with the bank linkage.
How are you keeping my card information secure?
RoundUp App uses Stripe as its payment processor – the same company that does payment processing for Amazon, Facebook, Lyft, and 100,000 other organizations. Only Stripe has access to your credit or debit card number. How will my nonprofit receive the donations? Donations are deposited directly into the nonprofit's bank account via Stripe. As a result, donations come directly from the donor. Any nonprofits that haven't set up a Stripe account will receive your donation in the form of a check.
