FAQ

What is Charity Charge?

Charity Charge is a Public Benefit Corporation based in Austin, Texas. In 2016, we created the Charity Charge World Mastercard that empowers individual cardholders to earn 1% Cash Back on every purchase as an automatic donation to the nonprofit(s) of their choice. 

Through our partnerships with GuideStar and Global Impact, cardholders can choose any 501(c)(3) organization, K-12 school, or religious organization to support with their Cash Back donations. 

Since our inception, we launched a business credit card designed for nonprofits with no annual fee and advanced online account management.

We work with organizations nationally as large as $100 million in revenue including chapters from United Way, Junior League and YMCA and we are a proud member of 1% for the Planet
