Help MFCU & Mastercard Stand Up To Cancer!

Authored By: Katie Erdody on 7/22/2021


Shop online or tap in store and you can help support Stand Up To Cancer. It can be easy to touch the lives of others by simply making everyday purchases. Whether it’s tapping for groceries at the local market or ordering online from your favorite restaurant, you can make a big impact, and even help support Stand Up To Cancer.

Because now, from April 1 to August 31, 2021, every time you order online or tap in store with your MFCU Mastercard debit card at qualifying restaurants and grocery stores, Mastercard will donate to Stand Up To Cancer, one precious cent at a time, up to $5,000,000.* Together, we can Start Something Priceless.


*Promotion begins at 12:00 a.m. EST on April 1, 2021, and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on August 31, 2021, or when the maximum US$5,000,000 donation goal is reached, whichever comes first (“Promotion Period”). Qualifying purchases can be made only at or from a qualifying U.S. Restaurant and U.S. Grocery Store. U.S. Restaurant and U.S. Grocery Store qualification will each be determined and defined by the applicable Mastercard Merchant Category Code. A Merchant Category Code is used to classify a business by the types of goods or services it provides. Debit PIN and international transactions are ineligible.

For each qualifying and reported U.S. Restaurant and U.S. Grocery Store (as defined by the applicable Mastercard Merchant Category Code) purchase made with a U.S.-issued Mastercard as either a contactless or an e-commerce (online – website/app) transaction, a one cent (US$0.01) donation will be made by Mastercard to Stand Up To Cancer, up to the maximum US$5,000,000 donation goal.

Contactless-enabled Mastercards are accepted at participating U.S. locations that have contactless enabled at checkout. Visit for more details. Mastercard relies on third parties to classify a transaction. In the event that a qualifying contactless transaction is not classified as a contactless transaction or under a qualifying Mastercard Merchant Category Code by a third party and reported to Mastercard but would otherwise have been a qualifying transaction, the transaction will not count as a qualifying transaction nor be eligible for the one cent (US$0.01) donation by Mastercard to Stand Up To Cancer.

Mastercard may suspend or terminate this promotion at any time in its sole discretion.
