We Interview the founder of Charity Charge, Stephen Garten, about how he got started and how his company is changing the charity credit card game.
- Instead of earning miles or bonus points, every transaction with the Charity Charge card allows you to donate 1% cash back to ANY nonprofit of your choice. It's an easy way to give everyday
- Unlike many giving-linked payment cards, the Charity Charge MasterCard issued by Commerce Bank is not limited to a single organization or cause — as with “affinity” cards — and there is no donation-processing fee, so recipient groups get the entire cash-back bonus. Consumers choose target charities when they sign up for the card and can change them at any time.
