Co-Branded Credit/Debit Cards Provide Charitable Support to Brewing Non-profits
GOLDEN, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#coloradoproud–For the first time in company history, On Tap Credit Union® launched new credit and debit card designs to benefit two Colorado brewing industry non-profits: the Pink Boots Society® and Colorado Brewers Guild. While the company is committed to supporting a wide range of financial services to members and employees, this new offering is another way of showing that continued support to their local business partners.
“On Tap Credit Union was founded by members of the Colorado brewing community, so everyone in the beer-loving world is at the heart of who we are,” said On Tap Credit Union President and CEO Tracie Wilcox. “Our charitable partnerships with the Pink Boots Society and Colorado Brewers Guild are a natural fit for our credit union members and yet another way for us to continue our extensive and wide-ranging support for the brewing industry.”
Every time an On Tap Credit Union member selects an On Tap credit or debit card co-branded with either the Pink Boots Society or Colorado Brewers Guild “State of Craft Beer” logo, the credit union will make a charitable donation to the selected non-profit organization, expanding On Tap’s longstanding support for the brewing community. On Tap has provided college scholarships and funding for college students and Pink Boots Society educational programs totaling $24,000 and benefiting 12 recipients since 2015.
The Pink Boots Society was created to assist, inspire and encourage women beer professionals to advance their careers in the beer industry through education. On Tap’s financial support through the co-branded credit and debit card partnership will provide funding for additional Pink Boots Society scholarships and help cover educational costs for women in the brewing industry. More information on the organization and its programs can be found at www.pinkbootssociety.org.
The Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) is a non-profit trade association that promotes and protects the Colorado craft brewing industry. With the majority of the 400 licensed Colorado breweries as members, CBG provides information for Colorado beer lovers and promotes Colorado craft breweries by advocating for Colorado craft beer with policymakers.
