And every time you use the card, Bank of America gives money to the Georgetown Alumni Association.

I fail to see the issue…

As the Credit Union only offered a debit card, when asked about a credit card we would refer them to this program which also helped the University. Its one thing to write a headline that captures attention, but another to purposefully blow the issue out of proportion 4 years later after it happened.
