SPIRE announced today that it has matched $27,490 in charitable gifts made by SPIRE members using the NetGiver donation platform. The member donations, made between November 30 and December 31, supported more than 100 different non-profit organizations.
SPIRE originally announced a maximum campaign match amount of $25,000, but extended the cap to ensure that every member donation was matched up to $250.
"The support that SPIRE members showed for the organizations they care about was amazing to witness," said Stephanie Johnson, SPIRE Community Relations Director. "We are proud to partner with our members to improve lives and give back."
NetGiver is a donation platform that allows credit union members to give to charitable causes with zero fees to organizations or donors. Other payment platforms can charge in excess of 7.5% of the transaction, preventing charities from receiving the full amount of the donation.
In total, the campaign resulted in more than $60,000 being donated to non-profits - with none of that amount being lost to fees.
