At Capital One®, we believe that our business can only be successful when our communities are healthy. We’re committed to using our skills, resources and network to drive meaningful social change that helps people and organizations succeed in a rapidly changing world. We’re constantly challenging ourselves to make a difference in our communities.
Capital One is a data-driven technology company, and we believe that sharing our collective skills and our digital expertise can help Canadians bridge a growing tech gap. In addition to providing funding to help charities thrive in a digital world, our associates are also dedicated to educating and supporting anyone who dreams of a better job and a more secure future.
Our research shows that 74 per cent of Canadian charities feel that a growing tech gap threatens the long-term success of their organization†. Charities can find it difficult to invest in technology, because funding is usually reserved for their cause.
At our annual Digital for Good summit, we provide a platform for Capital One associates and tech leaders to share their skills and digital expertise with charities. Featuring speakers from tech and non-profit sectors, the event is both inspiring and informative, offering insights into how charities can use technology to bring their services to a wider cross-section of people. We believe that this, in turn, will help strengthen our communities.
The forces of digital disruption are accelerating, and technology is changing everything. With all of these advancements, we still need to be mindful that many people don’t have access to digital tools. We’re proud to partner with the following organizations that are invested in preparing the next generation for a tech-focused future:
Our associates bring skill and care to every interaction they have with our customers, clients and communities. They have a deep understanding of our responsibility to help our customers achieve their goals and live their best lives. We’ve developed Credit Keeper™ which offers users quick access to their credit score, and allows them to see how it changes over time. Learn more about Credit Keeper.
Our goal of helping Canadians succeed with credit also extends beyond our customers, and we work with organizations that are committed to providing the public with credit education tools. Credit Education Week is a national event supported by leaders in financial services, consumer advocates, community organizations and government. The goal of this initiative is to empower the public to make wise financial choices by placing tools and tips at their fingertips through free events and resources that will address key topics in all stages of their financial life.
† An online survey of 500 Canadians working in either the charitable or not-for-profit sector was completed between March 21 to 28, 2018, using Leger’s online panel, LegerWeb. A probability sample of the same size would yield a margin of error of +/-4.4%, 19 times out of 20, of the overall Canadian population working within these industries.
