RCBC Bankard Platinum Mastercard forms partnership with Gawad Kalinga's Kusina ng Kalinga

by - December 06, 2016

Last November 24 RCBC, one of the country's top universal banks, relaunched RCBC Bankard Diamond Card Bankard. It was a well attended affair headed by President and CEO, Simon Calasanz, as well as RCBC Chairperson Mrs. Helen Y. Dee and RCBC President and CEO Sir Gil A. Buenaventura.

The relaunching of their Platinum MasterCard also highlighted RCBC Bankard's new partnership with the Gawad Kalinga's Kusina ng Kalinga project as part of their Diamond Cares Program.

Kusina ng Kalinga is Gawad Kalinga's response to hunger and malnutrition among public school students across the country. Setting up satellite kitchens all over the country, volunteers come in daily to prepare, cook, pack, and distribute nutritious food to public school children in surrounding areas.

RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard is more than just a credit card; it also serves as an affinity card. Through the Diamond Cares Program, cardholders are ready to lend a helping hand to those in need every time they use their RCBC Bankard Diamond Platinum Mastercard. For every Php 100.00 spent using the card, Php 0.20 is automatically donated to Gawad Kalinga's Kusina ng Kalinga(KNK).

"As we relaunch the RCBC Bankard Diamond Mastercard we acknowledge that we, along with our cardholders can make a difference. Lives will be better, both for our cardholders, and for the children who will have a better future because we have all cared," said President and CEO of RCBC Simon Calasanz.

The relaunched RCBC Bankard Diamond Mastercard carries with its strong advantages for its cardholders including a proprietary budget management tool, Spend Monitor, which allows cardholders to manage their finances better by allowing them to set their own budget

"Ending hunger for Filipino children in public schools is an important step in ending poverty in the Philippines. The support of RCBC Bankard for the Gawad Kalinga's Kusina ng Kalinga is essential to the achievement of our goal to provide meals for one hundred thousand public school students daily," said Mr. Antonio Meloto, Gawad Kalinga Founder
