BBVA Compass

Hassle-free fundraising for your members

No checks to write. No direct mail. No telemarketing. In other words, no hassles. The Compass For Your Cause Program allows your members to support your organization, by doing something many of them do virtually every day—use their check card for everyday purchases. And it's easy for them to get started. They simply:

  • Open a BBVA Compass Checking Account*
  • Open a Compass Visa® Check Card*
  • Sign for purchases using the Check Card

That's all there is to it. When they open an account, you earn a royalty of $50. Every time they use their Check Card for qualifying purchases††, you earn additional royalties. So start earning money the easy way with the Compass For Your Cause program. Contact us today to get started.

*Accounts and check cards subject to approval. $25 minimum opening deposit required. Organization member must make 5 transactions (deposits, checks, online bill payments, ACH transactions or check card purchases) within first 60 days of opening the checking account in order for the organization to qualify for royalty payments. Organization member must be a resident of AL, AZ, CA, CO, FL, NM or TX and must be at least 18 years of age (19 in AL) to qualify.

† Royalties will begin accumulating immediately upon opening of a new checking account. Accumulated royalties will be deposited into the organization's Compass checking account 60 days after opening of organization member account. After the initial deposit, royalties from checking accounts will be deposited into the organization's account on a monthly basis.

†A "Qualifying Purchase" is any signature-based purchase, Internet purchase, phone or mail-order purchase, bill payment, contactless purchase (purchases made by holding your Visa card or other device up to a secure reader instead of swiping your card), or small dollar purchase for which you are not required to sign, made with an enrolled Visa card, which is processed or submitted through the Visa U.S.A. Inc. payment system. A Qualifying Purchase does not include a purchase made using a Personal Identification Number (PIN) or purchase you initiate through identification technology that substitutes for a PIN.
