It's been (2) months since I created this post, and it seems no updates have come concerning AARP Foundation donations. Could we please donate this month to help struggling seniors for the Christmas holidays?
@ShirazI454395 I'm disappointed to learn that we are losing your support. AARP membership includes a long list of carefully selected membership benefits and discounts, have you seen them all? You can check out the details here: aarp.org/learnaboutbenefits
To donate your rewards points:
Go to aarp.org/rewards/redeem. Select the All Rewards tab. Select Filter by. Select AARP Foundation and then click Apply. Select the reward - $5 contribution to help end senior poverty (4,000 points) Click Give Now, then Confirm.
Once the AARP Foundation receives a certain number of Reward point donations for the month, the option to filter by AARP Foundation will no longer be listed and we stop accepting new donations until the following month. You can try donating your rewards points to the AARP Foundation next month.
@mi4090@SueP280957@andrewtoo Update! AARP Foundation point contributions are scheduled to launch before the end of this year. The launch date and access to this feature will be announced here in the Rewards forum exclusively before anywhere else. Keep an eye out for details.
@mi4090 - thanks for your donation to help struggling seniors! AARP Rewards users may contribute up to 8,000 max points each month, depending on availability. Your point contribution is not tax-deductible.
Explain how this is different than donation of points during the R4G program which were tax deductible? I was under the impression it was always a payment from member to Foundation that was paid through AARP, right? But we received a receipt for donations. During the previous program 1,000 points=$10.00 tax deductible donation.
Seems that the checks and balances for Foundation donations are gone, and we have no proof of the donations now.
Our points must have a monetary value due to the fact that you can use them for points only deals.
