MasterCard Priceless Table at Great American Ball Park on July 13, 2015 in Cincinnati, Ohio kicks off the 2015 Summer dining program to benefit Stand Up to Cancer.

With the weather turning cooler and kids everywhere back to school, it can only mean one thing: that our 2015 Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) campaign has concluded and for the fifth year in a row, we’ve met our $4 million fundraising goal in the U.S. And for the second time, we’ve raised $250,000 to help fight cancer in Canada. Throughout this summer, we made a donation to SU2C every time consumers spent $10 or more for a meal using their MasterCard card. Qualifying purchases included everything from coffee or a quick meal, to take out and fine dining.

Reaching our goal this year means since we started our summer dining program in 2010, we’ve raised $30 million for SU2C. This achievement is proof that together, we can harness the power of bringing people together to support a Priceless Cause. But we couldn’t do it without the help of a lot of people—and I’d like to take a moment to thank them for making this happen.

First, a special thank you to all of our cardholders – when you dined out and used your MasterCard card over the past few months, we made a donation to SU2C, one precious cent at a time.

We also must thank our issuing banks and restaurant merchant partners. They made each transaction count with their tremendous support.

Finally, thank you to our friends at Stand Up to Cancer. Your unique approach to eradicating cancer is truly making a difference—and we are proud to support your efforts.

The best news is, we’re not done yet! We’ve partnered with CVS/pharmacy in the U.S. to raise even more money over the course of the next year. Together, MasterCard and CVS/pharmacy will make a donation to help fight cancer for every Stand Up To Cancer MasterCard gift card sold in their stores starting this month through December 2016.
