CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank customers in Jamaica are contributing to better fortunes for several local charitable organizations and causes by donating rewards points earned by using their credit cards for purchases.

This month three organizations, the religious order, Missionaries of the Poor; the international charitable organization, Salvation Army and the Jamaica Environment Trust received close to $900,000 to support their programmes.

Nigel Holness, Managing Director of the bank explained that “under the CIBC FirstCaribbean rewards programme, customers using their VISA Gold or VISA Classic cards to make purchases may redeem points earned for cash back to their credit card account, merchandise or airline tickets and other travel rewards or they may donate their points to notable local charities.  Once the points are donated, the respective charities are able to redeem them for cash”.

Colette Delaney, CEO of CIBC FirstCaribbean International Bank said “the rewards programme is one that we host throughout the 16 Caribbean territories in which we operate.  We already have a relationship with most of the charities affiliated with the programme and we are excited that our clients are able to support these worthy causes.”

Across the region, the bank has a number of charities as possible options for cardholders to support.  In Jamaica, the recommended beneficiaries are Missionaries of the Poor, the Salvation Army and the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET).
