How companies help us put money to work in local communities
If you are an organization that distributes gift cards in the retail market, we would love the opportunity to work with you. One of our greatest challenges in collecting donated gift cards is aggregating and liquidating donations to create maximum value and impact for communities.
Many of our exchange liquidation processes can diminish up to 10% of the value of a gift card in fees, and we are committed to cover those expenses, but we could use your help. GiftCards4Change believes that a direct relationship with gift card merchant organizations is the best way to maximize value for everyone. You help us to liquidate and combine gift cards and everyone wins.
As a partner, you are able to reduce the administrative burden of dealing with low remaining balance gift cards, and simultaneously you help your local community. That small balance adds up to increased exposure for your business in communities and connects you to their greatest charitable causes, which enhances your overall brand identity, customer loyalty, and local community patronage.
When you work with us as a merchant partner GiftCards4Change distributes charitable funds, and all the donations are made in partnership, specifically honoring every merchant partner that was involved.
To be a merchant partner GiftCards4Change asks that your organization participate in one or more of the following ways:
Merchant Partner's help us with necessary resources to combine and liquidate donated gift cards without charging fees.
Merchant Partner's consideration of donor matching to programs and projects that align with your business interests.
Merchant Partner's help by supporting co-marketing initiatives in order to help GiftCards4Change increase awareness towards donating remaining balance gift cards.
Merchant Partner's consider allowing donation boxes to be placed in retail establishments.
Merchant Partner's consider outreach initiatives to their existing customers with small remaining balance gift cards in efforts to increase donations
Most retailers in today's competitive market offer between 10 to 50% off purchases to create strong brand awareness and loyalty. Every day these methods are employed but they lack in comparison to creating brand loyalty that aligns with cause-based community marketing initiatives.
Every year the retail customer demands more from their purchase experience and customers tend to be most loyal to companies that align with their interests, in their communities. So, please consider partnering with GiftCards4Change. If it serves no other purpose, it will have helped you clear those low gift card balances off your books, and create new media and brand loyalty opportunities for your organization.
We love people and would love to have the opportunity to work with you. Today, one of our greatest challenges is to help spread the word about gift cards being used for charitable purposes across the nation. Will you work with us by helping to liquidate remaining balance gift cards? Show your interest today by taking the pledge to support us in putting that undervalued card to work for the underserved.
