The cashier gets the difference.
I sometimes do the same, although nowadays I seldom pay with cash.

Across the border, in British Columbia, they don't even ask, if within 10c. They will either round down or round up.

The list is too long to take a risk. I rather donate directly to needed people or pets. It's my money and I want to decide where it goes and how is used.
I surprised anyone gives to those. It hasn't been a secret about most of the ones on the list especially the ones that say police, fire, and veterans.
