Capital One Partners with Network For Good to Do Good

In a previous column ("Charitable Charge," February 2010), I took credit card companies to task for charging transaction fees when their cards were used to make charitable contributions. My point was that for all the bailout money they received with no strings attached they should be able to absorb the relatively small cost of assuring that a charity gets a full $1,000 when I use my card to contribute that amount.

Almost immediately I got an e-mail from Pam Girardo, spokesperson for the card issuer Capital One. She told me her company already does what I had urged Congress to require.
