Round up your January bill to support women’s rights
You may know that CREDO gives millions each year to the nation’s leading nonprofits. But did you know that CREDO also makes it easy to round up your Mobile or Long Distance bill for progressive change? By rounding your bill to the nearest $1, $5 or $10, you further support the progressive organizations up for vote that month.
If you’ve ever considered rounding up your CREDO mobile or long distance bill, this January is a fantastic month to do so. This month we’re donating exclusively to groups fighting for women’s access to reproductive health care: Planned Parenthood Affiliates, NARAL Pro-Choice America and National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health. 100% of round-up proceeds are directly added to the monthly pool of donations.
How does it work?
When customers round up their phone bill, CREDO adds their extra contribution (100% tax-deductible) to the total donations raised that month for the three groups we selected to receive funding.
Round-up donations are tax-deductible. We’ll send you a donation acknowledgment letter for tax purposes at the beginning of the year if your round-up donations for the previous year exceeded $50.
How to round up your bill for a one-time payment:
1. Sign in to Member Services
2. Select the make a payment button
3. On the first payment amount step, opt to round up your bill
I’m a CREDO Mobile customer too, and I’m increasing my monthly round-up this month because I’m a big fan of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, NARAL and the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health. These groups fearlessly advocate for women and provide critical direct services.
Let’s be honest: paying bills isn’t my favorite activity. But when I round up my phone bill each month for three amazing nonprofits doing timely work to make our world a better place…well, that makes paying my phone bill a little bit nicer.
