When a cause needs to process a paper donation check, it creates costly administrative work. Non-profits must deposit checks individually and issue manual tax receipts to each donor. Checks also get lost in the mail or worse, sit uncashed!
Electronic payments cut down on manual administration time and reduce costs. Unlike other software providers in this space, Benevity sends the majority (88% in 2018!) of payments processed through our platform electronically, with funds arriving within 30 days.
The demand for employee giving and volunteering programs that stretch across borders is growing. Last year, we saw a whopping 85% increase in the adoption of the Benevity OneWorld™ international solution. More than half a million new users logged into the cloud-based program that enables employees across global offices to support causes inside and outside of their home countries.

Here are 3 things companies are doing about it this charitable season.
