Mastercard Gets In The Giving Spirit With Support For Stand Up To Cancer

With the holiday season beginning, there is no better time to support and encourage the act of giving. Knowing how passionate people are about causes—especially the fight against cancer—Mastercard is partnering on two different opportunities for its cardholders to help raise life-saving funds for Stand Up To Cancer's innovative cancer research.

See a Movie, Make a Difference

When the family has had enough of holiday shopping, take some time out for a movie and help make a difference at the same time. Beginning November 25, 2016, when moviegoers use their U.S. Mastercard in Masterpass to purchase movie tickets on Fandango or in the Fandango app through December 31, 2016, Mastercard will donate $10 for each transaction to Stand Up To Cancer, up to a total of $500,000.

Masterpass is a digital payment service from Mastercard that enables consumers to look no further than their own trusted bank to make fast, simple and secure digital payments - across devices and channels - anywhere they want to shop: online, in-app, and in-store using contactless technology. Masterpass helps you skip the movie lines and make the process of buying a ticket on Fandango easier than ever, and leverages the most advanced methods of payment security available today.

Give Even More this Giving Tuesday

Mastercard encourages cardholders to take a moment after the rush of Black Friday and Cyber Monday to celebrate Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving, by making a donation to Stand Up To Cancer. Starting November 29, 2016, Mastercard will donate $2 for every $1 our cardholders donate using a U.S. Mastercard through SU2C.org through December 31, 2016, up to a maximum of $200,000.

"This holiday season, we're encouraging our cardholders to donate to an organization we've been proud to collaborate with over the past seven years—Stand Up To Cancer," said Maripi Jalandoni, executive vice president, U.S. marketing, Mastercard. "It is a Priceless Cause we know many people hold close to their hearts, and together, we can do more good and raise more critical dollars to support life-saving cancer research."
