Comdata – Habitat For Humanity Press Release

Jun 24, 2016

ATLANTA (June 24, 2016) — Comdata is launching its new Habitat for Humanity Fuel Card, offering cardholders the opportunity to save money while raising funds for Habitat year round, as Comdata will donate 1 percent of all card expenses to the nonprofit.

The card will allow Habitat offices and construction professionals to make all of their fuel, material and maintenance purchases with the built-in controls, convenience and savings of Comdata’s Fuel Card platform.

“We are so grateful to Comdata for this unique partnership, said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, deputy director, Corporate, Foundation and Institutional Relations, Habitat for Humanity International. “The Habitat for Humanity Fuel Card will help further our mission to build strong and stable communities as we work to empower more families through shelter.”

New customers are eligible for a $100 activation bonus and can save on fuel and maintenance expenses with Comdata’s Retail Savings Network.

“We are proud to support such a worthy cause and organization,” said Michael Ross SVP, Innovation & Partnership Development, Comdata. “The new Habitat for Humanity Fuel Card leverages our strong history of innovation and partnership in the fleetcard industry to support those businesses that want to help build their communities.”

In addition to this partnership, Comdata recently lent its support to Habitat for Humanity’s Home Builders Blitz, a nationwide event where nearly 250 Habitat homeowners partnered with professional builders for one week to build decent and affordable housing.
