Card Pennies

United Way of America has launched a national program to automatically donate one penny for each credit or debit card transaction. The new “Pennies for Change” initiative has been implemented by NY-based Westchester Federal Credit Union, the first financial institution to offer the program. Twelve additional banks and credit unions are currently considering the new program: FORUM CU; First Federal Bank; Mutual Federal Savings Bank; Northeast CU; Western Reserve Bank; Superior FCU; The Milford National Bank and Trust Company; CTCE FCU; Maryland Bank & Trust Company; Flagship Community Bank; Southwest Community FCU; and North Texas Bank. The United Way says donations generated by the new program will be directed to United Way programs in local communities. For more information visit: “”:
