How to up your $$ impact
You don’t have to have a lot in the bank to do a lot of good. Just make a donation of $5 or more—Simple will join you and make its own donation of $20.
Every dollar makes a difference.
Working for racial justice calls for action from every one of us—and we can make a bigger difference when we do it together. We’re asking Simple customers to make a donation to the NAACP or Equal Justice Initiative. For each of the first 500 customers to donate, we’ll give a $20 donation.
Let others know why you donated and motivate them to join! Write your reason (in under 20 words) in the memo section of your transaction; add #share and we may post it to rally others to the cause! (We won’t share your name or donation amount—just your inspiring words.)
I donated to EJI because their focus on Criminal Justice Reform is one of the most important issues facing our country. #share
Donating is one way I can put my money where my mouth is for what I believe in. #share
I want to contribute to dismantling systemic racism and support organizations that are dedicated to doing that. #share
The NAACP and Equal Justice Initiative are committed to far-reaching work to dismantle systemic injustice—and we chose these organizations because we stand behind and align with their values of dedication to long-term, sustained action.
We’re focusing on just two organizations for this effort, because we believe it can make all our contributions work harder. But there are lots of different organizations and actions you can consider if you have the means. Here are some resources you could use as a starting point for exploring additional action.
Just use your Simple Visa® Debit card to make a donation of $5 or more to the NAACP or the Equal Justice Initiative during the campaign and Simple will donate $20 to the same charity.
Simple customers who have an active Simple Visa® Debit card are eligible to participate. While we encourage everyone, regardless of whether they’re a Simple customer or not, to donate to fight racial injustice, we’re only able to add $20 to eligible donations made by Simple customers.
It’s not required—we’ll donate $20 when you donate whether or not you add the hashtag to your transaction. But we encourage you to include your reason for donating so we can inspire more Simple customers to participate! When you add #share to the memo section of your transaction, we may post your message on our webpage or social media channels, but we won’t share your name, location, donation amount, or any other info. Messages may be edited slightly for length and clarity.
We chose the NAACP and Equal Justice initiative because their missions are aligned to our company values and those of our employees. While we’re only adding $20 for Simple customer donations to those organizations, we encourage you to contribute to any charity whose work is meaningful to you.
Simple will make our donation to the two eligible charities after September 30, once all customer donations have been tallied.
You can donate from either your individual Simple Account or your Shared Account. We’ll donate $20 for each individual customer who makes a donation with their Simple Debit Card, regardless of which account you use.
We encourage you to donate to charities in any way you’d like, but only donations made using a Simple Visa® Debit card qualify for the $20 Simple donation. Your Simple Visa® Debit card is the best way for us to know when a donation was made.
Simple is donating $20 for eligible customer donations of $5 or more, up to 500 customer donations. Unfortunately, we don’t have a way to let you know if your donation was one of the first 500. But know that your contribution makes a difference in fighting injustice no matter what!
No, it’s not required! We’re encouraging customers to set up charitable giving Expenses if it works for their budgets. But you’re not required to create an Expense as part of this campaign—it’s just a suggestion for making your impact ongoing if you have the means.
How to participate:
Use your Simple Visa® Debit card to make a donation of $5 or more to one of the eligible charitable organizations between Tuesday 9/15/20 and Wednesday 9/30/20, and Simple will donate $20 to the same charity!
Share with others why you donated:
Using your mobile app or online banking, select the donation transaction and in the memo section tell us why you donated. Use #share and we may share your reason anonymously to inspire others. Please keep your reason under 20 words so we can make sure it fits on social media!
