MINNEAPOLIS & LEXINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 6, 2005--Members and supporters of the Scottish Rite may now support the organization's charitable causes by using the new Scottish Rite affinity credit card, created in partnership with U.S. Bank. The card benefits the organization each time a new card is activated and again each and every time that card is used.

This affinity program will help Scottish Rite Charities to fund several collegiate scholarships as well as graduate research in the fight against schizophrenia, help kids to learn to read at 32 Degrees Masonic Learning Centers for Children, and help to preserve national heritage through the programs and conservation efforts of the National Heritage Museum.

Scottish Rite members and charity supporters have a choice of one of three cards offered through this U.S. Bank partnership, including one that earns reward points that can be redeemed for gift certificates, merchandise, cash and travel rewards. The partnership improves ability of the Scottish Rite organization to offer members high-quality affinity credit products. The partnership also demonstrates U.S. Bank's commitment to be a key corporate partner to the Scottish Rite.

"The prestige and history of the Scottish Rite is widely recognized and we are proud to join in supporting that legacy," said Tanya Turner, senior vice president of affinity products at U.S. Bank. "The Scottish Rite credit card will be a tremendous asset to anyone who wishes to support the organization's charitable causes with purchases they make every day."
