Faith-based CUs affinity card donates to mission work
NAMPA, Idaho (8/12/08)--Christian Community CU (CCCU) is offering its members a credit card that will donate $25 to mission work each time the card is approved. The credit union will donate additional funds each time the card is used for a purchase or pay a bill. The card is offered through a partnership the credit union has with Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF). CCCU designed the card, MAF Platinum Rewards Visa, and created the donation program. “Every time there’s an MAF card account opened, and cardholders use it exclusively, the potential donations to MAF are tremendous,” CCCU President John Walling said. CCU also will double rewards points when the card is used to make donations to MAF and most churches. MAF’s missionary teams help 1,000 organizations worldwide and MAF pilots transport missionaries, medical personnel, medicines and relief supplies. The teams serve in 51 countries and pilots fly an average of 281 flights per day across Africa, Asia, Eurasia and Latin America. MAF also provides telecommunications services, such as satellite Internet access, in isolated areas. CCCU, of San Dimas, Calif., has more than $450 million in assets.
