Based in San Francisco, CREDO (formerly known as Working Assets) operates with a unique business model: CREDO automatically donates a percentage of its members' phone charges to progressive nonprofit organizations, at no extra cost to members.The new CREDO credit card works in a similar way. Every time a member makes a purchase using the card, CREDO automatically donates 10 cents to nonprofit groups supporting women's rights, the environment, equality, peace and social justice. Since 1985, CREDO has raised $75 million for hundreds of social-change organizations. In all, more than 3 million consumers nationwide are members of CREDO's mobile, long distance and activism programs. 

"CREDO means belief. And we founded our company on the belief that we can build a business that supports social change and political activism," said Laura Scher, co-founder and executive chair of CREDO. "The new CREDO credit card will give a real boost to our mission by providing consumers with an easy, effective way to make a difference in the world through their credit card purchases. We'll benefit from Alliance Data's marketing expertise and analytics capabilities to offer a customized card program that's meaningful to our members."

Alliance Data will provide a full suite of co-brand credit card and related marketing services for CREDO, driving more cardholders to the program with the latest consumer-centric acquisition technologies, along with integrated marketing strategies designed to increase cardholder loyalty and repeat purchases.
