More money for your community — and in your pocket

Aspiration commits to donating 10% of all its earnings to nonprofit organizations that make a real difference.

They also make it easy for you to support the causes you care most about — everything from the environment to education to human rights. If you choose to make a donation through your Aspiration account, you’ll have complete control over where your money goes.

And switching to Aspiration will make a difference in your life too. You can earn up to 10% cash back, and up to 100 times the average interest rate on any money you put aside for savings.

That means you can grow your money and give back to your community. It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

Managing your account is all done online, and there are no maintenance fees or minimum deposits.

You'll also get unlimited fee-free withdrawals from over 55,000 Allpoint Network ATMs across the globe.

Plus, you choose the monthly account fee that seems fair — even if it’s zero.

‘Investments that benefit all of us’

So make the switch like Matthew Diminico, who used to be with one of the big banks but didn’t like their high fees and investing choices. He calls Aspiration "the best I’ve ever been with."

"Not only do they care about their customers, but they make investments that benefit all of us, not just the top," he says.*

When it comes to where your money goes, you’ve got a choice — you can support greed, or you can support your community. It’s a no-brainer.
