BBVA for Your Cause
Here is one way that you can help HHLA raise funds for the cause it believes in - home and land ownership for low- to moderate-income households, with homeownership related barriers. If you open an account at BBVA Compass Bank, $50 goes to HHLA. Here is how it works…
1. Open a BBVA Compass checking account by visiting any BBVA Compass Banking Center, or by calling 1–800-Compass. When you open your account, be sure to include our organization’s five-digit code on the account or tell the Compass representative assisting you that you have an organization code. The organization’s code is: 114864.
2. Apply for a BBVA Compass Visa® Check Card. Once the card arrives, visit https://www.bbvausa.com/checking-accounts/debit-card/make-my-debit-card.html, to personalize your card.
3. Start using your check card! Just make sure you sign for purchases or hit “credit” when you use it, so your purchases will qualify for this program.
For each qualifying transaction you make with your check card, Compass Bank will also deposit royalty payments equal to .25% of the amount of purchase into HHLA's account. This is a great way you can keep giving to the cause!
4. If you are already a BBVA Compass customer, simply tell your banker to update your account to include our organization’s code 114864. You can also do this by calling 1-800-Compass. When you participate in the program you will also be eligible for the Compass Bonus Banking program which offers you opportunities to save more on all your banking needs. Make sure you ask your BBVA Compass representative about the program.
How the funds add up:
Example: 100 of our supporters enroll in the program and open checking accounts:
100 x $50 = $5,000 in initial royalty payments
Over the course of one year, you each make an average of $500 in qualifying Check Card purchases.
$500 x 12 months = $6,000 a year
$6,000 x 0.25% = $15
$15 x 100 members = $1,500
$5,000 + 1,500 = $6,500
