BBVA Compass

Continuing Benefits For Your Organization

Once you've signed up for the  BBVA Compass for your Cause  program, funds easily and continually add up with little administration on your part and little effort on the part of the participants. Here's how it works:

  1. We'll deposit an initial royalty payment of $50 into your BBVA Compass Business Checking account with every new, qualified checking account opened by a participating member.1
  2. For each qualifying2 transaction your members make with their BBVA Compass Visa Check Card, we'll also deposit royalty payments equal to .25% of the amount of purchase into your account.3
  3. Your organizational image may be displayed on all members' BBVA Compass Visa Check Card. This is a great way for members to help promote your organization.

In addition, your members will automatically be eligible for the BBVA Compass Workplace Solutions program. Typically reserved for businesses and their employees, this program is available to your organization AT NO COST, and offers a variety of money saving benefits and financial enhancements for your members.
