We have created the opportunity for our debit card holders to donate to a good cause with every card payment. Donation is voluntary and is open to all private individuals.
Every penny counts – every little bit goes a long way towards a big goal. Let’s do it together!
How does it work?
With an active debit card, you can turn donation on or off in the LHV mobile app or in the internet bank. You should also choose how much and to which charity you donate with each card payment.
You can change your choice at any time, for example, you can increase the amount of the donation or direct the donation to another organization. The change will take effect on the next calendar day.
We pay the collected donations to charities once a year.
As a donor, you will receive a refund of income tax on your donation. You will also see the total amount of your donations in the LHV mobile app and in the internet bank.
For example, if you make 15 card payments a month and donate 10 cents with each payment, your contribution to charity is 1.5 Euros per month and a total of 18 Euros per year.
