Apple may be getting some outside help to boost their education sales for the upcoming school year. Charter One Financial Inc. today announced the launch of its One-Click fund — a computer donation program that will run for the next eight weeks.
Basically, when a customer signs up to participate in online banking with the company, Charter One will make a contribution to the One-Click fund. The fund will then allocate money for the purchase of iMacs and printers for participating schools. The company did not disclose how much they would contribute to the fund.
“By simply signing up to bank online, Charter One and its customers can make a significant and positive contribution to our schools,” said Mark Grossi, Charter One’s executive vice president of retail banking.
Schools eligible for the program must be in the six states that Charter One operates. Participating schools are located in the following cities: Cleveland, Chicago, Detroit, Springfield, MA, Burlington, VT, Albany, NY, Buffalo, NY, Rochester, NY, Utica, NY, Toledo, OH, and Canton, OH.
