Citi launches credit card points donation program to help frontliners


Citi launches credit card points donation program to help frontliners

How do you feel about this story?


Qualified Citi credit cardholders can now use their rewards points to assist those at the forefront in the fight against Covid-19. Citi Philippines is working with World Vision and the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation to aid the country’s medical frontliners and the families who have been affected by the lockdown.

Credit cardholders with Citi Prestige, Citi PremierMiles, Citi Rewards, and Citi Cash Back cards can donate their points, miles and rebates to help provide personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators for health workers and disinfectant kits/tents for health facilities, sanitation kits and temporary income to the most vulnerable families. Citi Philippines will share the equivalent value in cash to the cardholder’s organization of choice.

World Vision is a global humanitarian organization devoted to improving the lives of children, their families, and communities to overcome poverty. Qualified Citi credit cardholders can choose to support the World Vision COVID-19 Health Emergency Response initiative to:

  • Equip families to fight the COVID-19 pandemic with sanitation kits
  • Provide PPEs/disinfectant kits/tents to health facilities in affected communities
  • Award temporary income to the most vulnerable families

The Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) is the country’s major private sector vehicle and coordinator for disaster management. Donations to PDRF’s Covid-19 relief efforts support Project Kaagapay which aims to raise over P100 million to provide medical items such as PPEs and ventilators for hospitals.

Qualified credit cardholders will receive an e-mail from Citi with a link to a donation form, where they can select the amount of points, miles or rebates they would like to donate and the option to help either World Vision or the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF). Processing of the donation will be done in 15 to 20 business days.

The points donated by Citi credit cardholders will go to frontliners and communities affected by the quarantine, who are receiving much-needed assistance from the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) and World Vision.
