Each credit card swipe earns money for charities

Local merchant solutions provider, MerchantsXL, has launched an innovative credit card processing program to save businesses money and, at the same time, generate new income for local non-profit organizations.

The new program, called Give Back to Reno, was launched as a unique program blending charitable needs with smart business strategies to leverage a win-win solution for the Northern Nevada region. Designed by NPcatalyst, a Reno-based philanthropic solutions firm, the program works with local businesses to lower the fees associated with credit card transactions. MerchantsXL then directs funds to local charities.

“When we created MerchantsXL in 2010, our primary goal was to turn our entrepreneurial spirit into community leadership, says Cole Bevel, the company’s Managing Partner. “We created a program that does not force anyone to come out of pocket to generate outstanding financial support for the organizations which strive to make our community stronger every day.”

The way it works is relatively simple. Customer uses a credit card to make a purchase; merchant then swipes the card to process a payment; and, a portion of the payment goes to a select non-profit organization. “the concept is innovative and works seamlessly for everyone involved. We’re delighted by the results”, claims Jeff Lenardson, who is also managing partner of MerchantsXL.

In mere minutes, businesses can realize the savings and non-profits can begin generating new dollars.

NPcatalyst adds client to bolster business and nonprofit growth

     

We’re ecstatic to announce the addition of Viking Capital Management to the NPcatalyst family of corporate clients. Based in Westlake Village, California, Viking offers its clients the utmost in service, cash flow, and cost saving solutions. The NPcatalyst team is providing creative strategies and active management services for the company’s Viking Cares program.

The goal of company’s Viking Cares program is to implement a stream of continual income to deserving charitable organizations. “Viking Cares allows businesses to support their favorite charities through an innovative giving platform, which won’t adversely affect their bottom line”, according to Pete Parker, managing partner of NPcatalyst. “It’s a great fit to our mission of connecting donors and leaders to charities through innovative synergy”.

The Viking Cares process is simple and everyone wins. Every time that a business accepts a credit card from a customer, a sales representative gets paid a commission. In most cases this commission is 50% of net fees.  Through Viking Cares, the company will match each client’s current credit card rates and fees penny for penny but re‐direct the funds that are generally paid as a commission every month to the charity of its choice. This passive charitable donation will continue as long as each client continues to process with Viking.  It’s that simple.

“Businesses can increase their philanthropic endeavors with no advertising out of pocket expense; and every time a credit card is used, our partner charities or local schools will benefit”, says Gregory Augustine, partner of Viking Capital Company. “Simply coined, it’s passive to business, perpetual to charity”.
