"We know it can be hard to find extra money to donate to a worthy cause.  Now, it’s easy and convenient to support our public school teachers and our students, no matter what your budget is.

Affinity Debit Cards truly have an impact for local organizations in our community. Linda Brouwer, Director of Development at Free 2 Teach says, “The Free 2 Teach Affinity Debit Card makes a real statement when you use it. We are grateful for the increased visibility for our cause throughout our community.”


With each swipe of an Affinity Debit Card, Redstone is able to give CashBack to organizations who desperately need extra funding. “Using the Affinity debit card is such an easy way to raise funds for the school.  With this program we are not asking people to donate to the school—we are just asking them to change from their current RFCU® Debit Card to our RFCU Affinity Debit Card at no cost. We have experienced steady growth in the number of cardholders, turning this into a very good fundraiser,” says Lin Brittain, Manager of Madison Academy’s school store, The Corral.

Want to get an Affinity Debit Card for your checking account? You can request one of the card designs at any branch or by calling Member Support. Want to open a checking account? See all of our options here and then apply for your favorite at any of our 24 branches.
