At Visa, our thoughts are with everyone impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Today, we are announcing our commitment to support immediate relief and recovery efforts in Texas. Visa will make a $250,000 donation to the American Red Cross to immediately help those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

  • Visa will double-match employee donations to the American Red Cross.
  • In conjunction with its clients, Visa also will waive interchange fees on eligible donations made to the American Red Cross from August 25th through September 15th. Visa will donate to the American Red Cross all revenue generated from these eligible contributions during this period.
