Change Your Community
With The Power of Change®, you can choose to have your debit card transactions rounded up to the nearest dollar and designate the change to help your community. Your contributions, when added with other members, have the power to create a positive impact in the community. Donated funds will go to Nusenda Foundation and are shared with our partner organizations and nonprofits to strengthen and support the needs of the communities where we live, work, and play.
How it Works
If you have a Nusenda Visa® debit card or breeze® debit card, you can participate in The Power of Change for your community.
When you enroll in The Power of Change, transactions made with your debit card are rounded up to the nearest dollar. The change is then donated to Nusenda Foundation. Your donation may be tax deductible. Please check with a qualified tax advisor.
Your rounded up change goes to Nusenda Foundation.
Each day, the total round up from your previous day’s transactions will be securely deposited to Nusenda Foundation as a single donation.
Nusenda Foundation operates as a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization in partnership with the operations of the credit union; and support new and existing programs, such as Community Rewards, Powering Success, Co-op Capital, Financial Services Career Exploration courses and internships, the Financial Education Innovators program, and more.
