Donate my member payout

I'm thinking about services like Amazon Smile, where a portion of each Amazon purchase is matched as a donation to the charity of my choice. Designating a nonprofit as the beneficiary of my BECU member benefit makes for a really easy donation. Even in small amounts, those donations add up for community nonprofits.

I really do like the Amazon Smile program, but I wonder if it is best kept for retail establishments instead of financial institutions.  I want the companies with whom I do business to reinvest in the community.  I want financial institutions to reinvest in me.  I don't want my deposit interest rates to go down or my credit interest rates to go up in order to fund a program.  If BECU continues to serve me as well as they do, I will continue to serve the community my own ways.

@ScottmacNW- Amazon Smile is a great example, and we do currently offer the ability to donate earned points to charities of your choice. This will also be considered as part of our new rewards program as well. 

 

@cmwagner- You bring up insightful points, thanks for joining in the discussion!
