Supporting Communities

When individuals and small businesses succeed, communities prosper

We believe in using the power of Visa’s network to help support communities. We’re actively working with financial institutions, governments and fintechs to help provide underserved communities and unbanked populations access to innovative financial solutions. We also provide relief and support to communities, front-line organizations and small businesses impacted by wildfires, hurricanes or other natural disasters.
