The SPIRE “Give Freely” $20,000 match giving campaign in December was offered to SPIRE members who used the NetGiver app to support charities of their choice.
During the 21-day campaign, SPIRE members donated a total of $23,883. Through the campaign, SPIRE witnessed the passion and dedication members have for their favorite nonprofit organizations. Because of this, SPIRE raised its match from $20,000 to $23,883 — ensuring every donation was matched! The total impact of the campaign was $47,766.
SPIRE has partnered with NetGiver to help charities reduce the fees that they pay on donations. NetGiver is a donation app that allows credit union members to give to charitable causes with zero fees to organizations or donors. Other payment platforms charge in excess of 7.5% of the transaction so charities do not receive the full amount of the donation. Throughout 2020, NetGiver collected a total of $242,948 (of which $17,000 would have been lost to fees) from 718 donors, benefitting 351 nonprofits.
“We want people to become aware of the NetGiver app,” said SPIRE President/CEO Dan Stoltz, ”And use it when they do their giving so that deserving charities can receive 100% of the donations given to them.”
