Charitable Checking AccountSM
– A Simple, Effective Way to Give

Whether you want to memorialize a loved one, say "thank you" to others or simply organize your charitable giving throughout the year, the free Charitable Checking Account℠ (CCA) service can help you.

The CCA Service is a no fuss charitable fund option that has no minimum or maximum gift or grant requirements. You can give to the charities of your choice – locally, nationwide and even internationally – when you want. We take care of the details for you, and you collect the tax benefits, helping you make the most of your charitable dollars.
