N26 teams up with Mastercard in support of the World Food Programme


N26 has announced a new year-end campaign that will see the digital bank expand their partnership with Mastercard, in support of the global payments and technology leader’s long-standing relationship with the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, the United Nations World Food Programme. From 1 – 24 December, N26 will donate the value of one meal towards feeding a vulnerable child each time one of its 5 million customers in Europe pays online with their N26 Mastercard.

The campaign aims to support vulnerable children around the world by making a meaningful contribution on behalf of customers who choose to pay with N26. In addition, Irish N26 customers will also be able to support this meaningful initiative with their own donations over the campaign period, now made possible for the first time with the introduction of a new donation feature within the N26 app. The new functionality will allow anyone with an N26 account to easily send a donation of any amount straight to the World Food Programme in a matter of seconds.

The United Nations World Food Programme is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, saving lives in emergencies and using food assistance to build a pathway to peace, stability and prosperity for people recovering from conflict, disasters and the impact of climate change. Currently active in more than 80 countries and helping nearly 90 million people across the globe, the World Food Programme aims to create a world without hunger by 2030.

“This unprecedented year has proven how essential it is to take care of the people around us. As a global bank, helping our employees and customers support causes that matter is hugely important to us. This meaningful extension of our partnership with Mastercard, and the new donation functionality within our app will make it possible for us to use the power of the N26 product and the scale of our customer base to contribute to a worthy cause this season and support the World Food Programme in its noble aim to eradicate hunger around the globe,” said Adrienne Gormley, COO, N26.

“At Mastercard, we strive to make giving a part of everyday life by connecting it to our business and technologies and are proud to build on eight years of support for the World Food Programme with this latest initiative with N26 Bank. Together, we want to show that technology can be a force for good, and hope to provide millions of meals to children in need this season,” added Peter Bakenecker, Divisional President Mastercard Germany and Switzerland.

All digital transactions made with an N26 Mastercard from 1 December at 12:00 am (CET) to 24 December at 11:59 pm (CET), including online purchases, digital subscriptions, in-app payments and app-store purchases will all be matched by a donation of one meal to the World Food Programme. ATM withdrawals, in-store payments and money transfers will not qualify.
