CINCINNATI — Fifth Third Bank’s new “Pay to the Order Of” campaign is using account openings to drive donations for cancer research.
For each new customer who opens a checking account with direct deposit and makes three online bill payments, Fifth Third will give $150 to the customer and donate $150 to Stand Up To Cancer.
SU2C is a groundbreaking initiative supporting scientific collaboration to accelerate innovative cancer research and bring new therapies to patients quickly.
Fifth Third began working with SU2C in 2013 when the Bank launched the Fifth Third SU2C credit and debit cards, which direct donations to SU2C for every qualifying purchase made using those cards. Fifth Third Bank contributed more than $534,000 to SU2C in 2013.
The campaign spans radio, in-branch, online, out-of-home and social media as well as TV, including two commercials. Fifth Third is asking everyone who has been affected by cancer to share photos and stories by using the hashtag #PayToTheOrderOf via Twitter, Vine, Instagram and Facebook. Some stories will be featured on an interactive gallery at 53.com/SU2C.
