Charity Charge

Charity Charge is a credit card program designed for nonprofit organizations. Your organization may need a line of credit but lack the assets and financial history necessary to secure one. Too often, executive directors and founders of nonprofits end up securing a credit card that is personally guaranteed. Not only is this a huge risk for the individual, but it also prevents the nonprofit organization from building an adequate credit history.

Charity Charge believes that nonprofits should have access to a “business” credit card designed specifically for their needs.

We work with organizations nationally as large as $100 million in revenue including chapters from United Way, Junior League and YMCA.

Charity Charge is a Public Benefit Corporation based in Austin, Texas, and founded by social entrepreneur Stephen Garten.

CFO at Villa Montessori School

“In no time at all, Charity Charge was able to get us the credit line we need, based on the strength of our financials and our operations. We are very grateful for your help in getting us a credit line and resulting credit cards that will actually meet our operational needs on a regular basis.”

Kate Williams

CEO at 1% for the Planet

“When we learned that we could shift our business expenses to a Charity Charge credit card, it was an easy decision. We like that using the card integrates giving back into every purchase we make. The Mastercard Easy Savings and discounts are helpful and we have peace of mind knowing we have protection against unauthorized purchases and reduced liability for our staff.”
