Ginger, thanks so much for the update on how to use my points for charity in September. I will check it out and donate then. Will I also be able to donate points to other charities? Pam

Hello @ws54362 ,

We only have (1) opportunity per month to make a points donation to the Foundation, September is the last time before everyone loses all their points.  For the last couple of months we were able to donate 2,000 pts ($20.00) which is tax-deductible.  I've been constantly asking for an increase in the points donations for months.  But now, the Administration post that it's been lowered back to 1,000 pts is SADSmiley Sad

This is the last chance to help struggling seniors with food drives, etc.  Take a look at my post DONATE POINTS to the FOUNDATION!!! 1st of Month Instructions! it has (2) direct links for making the September donation.  Donate immediately on the 1st because the limit will probably be reached quickly.

Thanks for donating in advanceSmiley Happy

 

Have a Blessed Day,

Marylin

So;

When that comes up in September, we can donate 1000 points immediately? Or are we restricted to a certain amount daily? (that 1000 points is a hard ceiling, right?)

@NJPam @ws54362

Hello there

Thanks for your willingness to donate to help Seniors 

I'm very sad and disappointed that we can only donate 1000 points ($10 value)  but grateful we can donate (see below screenshot for sample of donate page- leave with 1 count) Again thanks for your generosity 

 

You will not find the link to Donate Points until September 1st and the link will only last till the cap(?) has been met, usually 4 days 

So be on the lookout for the link found on R4G Redeem page on 1st (see screenshot below what should look like) 

Have a beautiful weekend 

Gratefully 

Ginger  :  )

@AARPTeri 

Hello Teri, I guess your efforts to get an increase were fruitlessSmiley Sad  Well, at least more members will get an opportunity to donate for the end of R4GHeart

Sure was counting on an increase to at least 5,000 points for our last attempt to help before points are goneSmiley Sad  Thanks for trying anyway.

 

Have a Blessed Day,

@mi4090 

Marylin

In the past I could find a link to donate points to some charities, but cannot find where to do that now.  I have points that will expire and would like to donate.  Please advise how to find the link for this. Thank you, Pam

This is cool, but how do I donate points to charity (AARP Foundation)? I see no button, box or window to do so.
