Charge For Charity has created a program that allows merchants to make donations to their favorite charities without any cost to themselves or their businesses.
None whatsoever. Charge For Charity has a unique relationship with Ignite Payments, a First Data Company, one of the largest credit card processor in the world. What this relationship provides is that a portion of your credit card processing fees is paid to the charities you designate.
It means that we can offer you this program:
Your monthly processing fees will be the same or less than they are now; and worthy causes you select will benefit every time a credit card is used to buy your goods or services.
We are all familiar with point of sale charitable giving where the cashier asks the customer if he or she wants to give one dollar to a charity. A recent study of this type of giving found that almost $400 million was raised in one year.* And that required someone to actually pay a dollar. We can raise more than that without asking anyone (either you or your customer) for anything.
Every merchant we add grows the circle of giving. With a large enough circle, no donation is too small. Consider these examples: In one promotion the cashiers at J.C. Penny’s asked customers to round up their bills to the next dollar. Those pennies at Penny’s made $10 million in a six-month period. McDonalds has loose change canisters at its checkout points which raise at least $20 million a year for Ronald McDonald House.* Notice that in those cases and others like them, people have to actually do something and merchants have to actually collect and pay something. In the Charge For Charity Program, no one has to reach into a pocket, write a check, or fill a can to do good. You just keep doing business and we do the rest.
