Planned Parenthood Selected by CREDO Customers to Receive Donation

CREDO Empowers Customers to Support Progressive Nonprofits


WEBWIRE – Tuesday, February 11, 2014

New York, NY – The CREDO phone company, which uses revenues to fund progressive social change work, has announced a generous donation of over $80,000 to support Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s ongoing work to protect women’s access to critical health care.

Planned Parenthood was nominated by CREDO customers and chosen among hundreds of nonprofits to be featured as one of three groups eligible in January to receive funding. CREDO customers then helped decide how much money each nonprofit received by voting online or via phone or text.

“CREDO is a national leader in supporting women’s rights and health, and we are extremely grateful for CREDO’s longstanding partnership,” said Eric Ferrero, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s vice president for communications. “With women’s health coming under repeated and increasingly harsh assault in states across the country, CREDO’s support is now more important than ever. Recent efforts to restrict access to safe and legal abortion, as well as preventive care like birth control and cancer screenings, have a very real and devastating impact on women who already have the least access to health care. CREDO’s support makes it possible for Planned Parenthood to fight back against these attacks on every front to protect women’s health and rights.”

The other two organizations chosen by CREDO customers in January were 350.org and the Mother Jones Investigative Fund. CREDO has donated more than $76 million to organizations committed to social change since the company was founded in 1985. You can learn more about CREDO’s donations program here.
