The heart of CREDO is bringing social change through everyday acts of commerce.
Founded in 1985 as Working Assets, CREDO has created a unique business that integrates excellent consumer services with activism and philanthropy.
We give progressive consumers a powerful alternative to doing business with huge corporations whose conduct is antithetical to the political, environmental and social values we share.
We make it easy for progressive individuals like you—through the simple act of doing business with CREDO—to stand up and fight for your progressive ideals.
CREDO is a tireless advocate for our progressive members and their values.
Big corporations, the Tea Party and the 1 percent have gained immense power in recent years. We equip our CREDO community of over 3.5 million members with the tools to engage in strategic fights at the right moment and in the most effective way.
Through CREDO Action and CREDO Mobilize, we direct millions of signatures, emails and calls to politicians and other key decision-makers. We make activism easy, so any CREDO member can become a highly effective campaigner for equality and social justice.
Every CREDO customer is a philanthropist. Every CREDO product creates change.
Whenever you use a CREDO product—mobile, long distance or credit card—you contribute to our mission of progressive social action.
That’s because we donate a portion of revenue—whose distribution is voted on monthly by our members—to progressive nonprofit groups working on key issues such as women’s rights, the environment, peace and social justice.
Since 1985, we have donated more than $78 million, with the total growing by several million each year.
