It’s a simple yet powerful idea. What if many people combined their earned interest and donated it to charity?

Like a lot of good ideas, Interest for Others Foundation started with a good question. Could something great be done with earned interest?

In 2013, retired attorney Bill Dolan was struck with that question and bright idea. Make it easy for people to donate their earned interest to charity, and by adding together their small amounts, empower them to make a big difference for others. That‘s how Interest for Others Foundation was born. It’s a little way to do a lot of good.

“By joining together and donating our earned interest we can massively impact charitable giving. Interest for Others turns small interest amounts into meaningful receipts for charity.”


Interest for Others Foundation encourages generosity and community spirit by giving bank customers an easy way to donate earned interest to charities they love.
