1st Financial Partners With MasterCard To Find a Cure For Cancer
July, 1st , 2014- 1st Financial Federal Credit Union members with an Atira MasterCard can help end the threat of cancer by participating in the Stand Up 2 Cancer program.
Stand Up 2 Cancer is a charitable organization focused on raising donations to fund cancer related research. Since 2008, Stand Up 2 Cancer sponsored research has launched over 140 clinical trials and worked with over 4000 patients. Members who use their Atira card, 1st Financial’s MasterCard, are able to take part in this program from July 1st through September 15th.
MasterCard will track every time a 1st Financial member spends $10 or more at a restaurant during the promotion using their Atira card. MasterCard will then make a donation to Stand Up 2 Cancer on the member’s behalf. There is no registration required to take part in the promotion and 100% of the money donated goes to cancer research and prevention.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our members to make an enormous difference in our community,” said Michelle Rosner, Vice President of Lending and Marketing at 1st Financial Federal Credit Union. “We all know someone who has been affected by this terrible disease. Knowing that you can directly help with the fight against cancer using only your 1st Financial Atira MasterCard is incredible. The fact that this particular assistance comes at no added cost to our members is amazing.”
