Credit Card Companies Must Not Profit From Charitable Donations - The Hunger Site


Business  (tags: business, corruption, dishonesty, ethics, finance, money, news, society, world )

Credit card companies siphon off upwards of 3% of all charitable donations as so-called "transaction fees." While 3% may not sound like much, it adds up quickly. PLEASE SIGN!!!

I don't use creditcards. These companies and banks have way too much power already.
Sometines it's a pity that I don't use them, because cannot make donations sometimes.

Signed. Charities have enough trouble raising funds without losing part of it to credit card companies.

Signed, noted and commented -
A donation is tax-free - It should also be transaction-free. A donation is for a charitable cause and charging a transaction fee is bad taste - and bad press.

Signed & noted. Many thanks, Alexandra.
Now, if we could just stop those banks from profiting off the SNAP program and other programs that they benefit off of from the use of these "credit cards."

I support this idea and have signed the petition. I would also like the charitable organizations to put more of our contributions into the actual reason for the organization (like feeding the hungry) and less into overhead like high salaries for the CEOs etc.

All I care about is having enough money to take care of myself and some to help others.

Signed, by the way, in my country you can make charitable donations with cell-phone calls, and the companies get money for this service....
