Giving Tuesday 2018


The Camp Fire is the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California’s history. The fires have charred an area the size of Chicago, razing over 14,000 residences, taking 85 victims, with hundreds more still missing. (source)

Given that CNote is an Oakland-based company, we wanted to support our neighbors to the north, that have been through so much, for #GivingTuesday

We will donate $20 to The California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund for each newly-funded account on our platform from Tuesday, November 27th through Tuesday, December 4th.

Here’s what that donation will help do:

Grants from the Wildfire Relief Fund have supported those who were displaced or lost housing, belongings and/or employment, or suffered physical or mental health problems; helped to rebuild homes; provided case management services, basic needs assistance, mental health services and financial assistance; upgraded 2-1-1 phone and information system; assisted California wildfire victims with follow-up medical care and supplies; provided respiratory equipment and information to people with lung disease; educated homeowners about green rebuilding; and provided disaster preparedness information.

Earn more + Invest in others + Help those in need

A trifecta of good.

All you have to do is visit and register for a new account and initiate a funds transfer this week.

If you’re an existing CNote user, who hasn’t yet completed and funded your account, if you initiate your first transfer you will qualify as well. Finally, this donation stacks with existing user-referral bonuses, so we encourage you to refer friends during this week so their signup helps you while supporting those affected by the Camp Fires.
