February is the annual commemoration of the history, the culture, the contributions, and the sacrifices of African Americans. Chase and United Airlines are celebrating Black History Month by rewarding United MileagePlus cardmembers with 10X miles on donations to select non-profits dedicated to offering Black students and supporting civil rights opportunities.
United and Chase Celebrate Black History Month with 10X Miles on Donations Offer
In honor of Black History Month, United Airlines, Chase and Visa are once again teaming up to inspire United MileagePlus Cardmembers to donate to select non-profit organizations that provide access to educational opportunities for Black students and support civil rights policies. Between February 1 and March 31, 2024, United MileagePlus® Visa Cardmembers will earn ten (10) total miles for every dollar (up to $1,500) donated to the following organizations:
- The Thurgood Marshall College Fund is a non-profit organization established in 1987 as the nation’s largest organization exclusively representing the Black College Community. TMCF’s member schools include 47 publicly supported Historically Black colleges and Universities that enroll nearly 300,000 students.
- The NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund is a premier legal organization fighting for racial justice through litigation, advocacy, and public education.
- United Negro College Fund – a non-profit that supports under-represented students looking to continue their education.
To make giving (and earning) even easier, United has set up a dedicated Black History Month 2024 page. This page provides direct links to the donations pages for eligible charities and non-profit organizations.

Supporting Organizations that Advance Civil Rights
This is the fourth year that Chase and United Airlines have teamed to offer enhanced miles for every dollar donated to select charities supporting civil rights and education. The brands were quick to highlight the importance of the new promotion – and the impacts it can have on Black lives – in a press release announcing the launch:
“This Black History Month, United is proud to celebrate the Black community and continue our ongoing commitment to fight racial inequality by supporting organizations that advance civil rights and provide more opportunities for economic, educational and personal development,” said Jessica Kimbrough, chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer at United. “Through our partnership with Chase and Visa, we look forward to giving our valued Cardmembers a unique way to make meaningful contributions to these organizations and be rewarded for their support.”
“At JPMorgan Chase we are on a mission to help close the racial wealth gap and drive economic inclusion for Black communities,” said Ed Olebe, president of co-brand cards at JPMorgan Chase. “Providing more access to educational opportunities for Black students and increasing civil rights is foundational to our long term success. We are partnering with United and Visa during Black History Month again this year to reward our customers when they take action to support organizations that are truly making a difference in these critical areas.”
