Donate to Charity With Capital One Credit Cards

RSF Social Finance reports that “Capital One credit cards provide an innovative rewards system where you can donate to any charity of your choice that uses Network for Good. Capital One will pay the fees, you get the tax benefit, and your favorite charity has more funding!”

Give cash or donate No Hassle Rewards with a Capital One credit card and 100% of your donation reaches your charity.

What a great collaboration. Instead of vilifying credit card companies, as many of us do, you can partner with one to do good.

It’s too easy and convenient to blame our economic problems on the “bad guys” and avoid asking ourselves how our own choices contribute to the current financial crisis. It’s not us against them, whoever “they” happen to be. When we look for common ground, and let go of labeling some people as good and others as bad, we create changes that everyone can buy into.

  2. Dave, thank you for your kind words. We’ll all keep pulling together and make some good changes happen!

  3. Nice one!

    I happen to be with a bank that is more charitable than most. It makes me feel better knowing I’m not just making fat cats fatter.

    As to taking responsibility for our financial situation, you are absolutely right. I suggest It’s difficult thing for many of us to do because it’s often understood as taking the blame, or obligation. Real power comes from taking responsibility, because you are no longer a victim of your circumstances. I was once told that if you break up the French version of the word, which is ‘responsable’ it reads as ‘able to respond.’ That works much better for me.

    • Thanks for your thoughtful comment.

      Framing responsible as “able to respond” is so empowering. “Responsible” can have that shadow of blame to it, as you said, but “able to respond” means we can impact our economies, political situations, social challenges, environmental problems. Small communities who understand how powerful they are change society.
