Common Cents is a special feature of Cooperative Federal's VISA Check Card.
Every purchase you make with a Coop Fed VISA Check Card generate a little bit of income --"small change" -- for our credit union. We share this income with local non-profit groups that reflect our member's values.
How does it work?
At the beginning of each year, credit union members can nominate their favorite non-profits to receive a Common Cents award. Nominees are reviewed by the Board of Directors, and all qualifying organizations are included on the Common Cents ballot. Then, members vote to tell the board how to distribute the funds generated by VISA Check Card purchases that year. Voting kicks off at the Annual Meeting and continues throughout the spring.
