COLUMBUS, GA– August 22, 2016– TransFirst®, a leading provider of transaction processing services and payment enabling technologies, and Click & Pledge®, a provider of fundraising and donor management support solutions for non-profit organizations, are using their longtime partnership to streamline the process of online fundraising for non-profit organizations throughout the United States.
“Click & Pledge and TransFirst work from their own individual strengths,” says Kamran Razvan, president, Click & Pledge. “Click & Pledge creates the software and TransFirst provides the payment processing — collecting and disbursing the money that has been raised, all while handling transaction-related disputes and complying with industry regulations.”
Click & Pledge’s GiveBig social fundraising platform provides an easy solution for large-scale fundraising. On Arizona Gives Day in April, Click & Pledge and TransFirst accepted more than $2.6 million in electronic donations. “Through Click & Pledge, we were successful in raising more money across the state and not having to worry about the technical processing of donations for each of our individual organizations.” says Jennifer Purcell, director of community engagement, Arizona Gives Day.
“Non-profits receive a TransFirst merchant account through Click & Pledge,” says Carl Mazzola, president, Health and Public Services at TransFirst. “Once the account has been opened for a giving day event, the organization can continue to use its TransFirst and Click & Pledge account for all of its payment processing at the same specialized giving day pricing.”
TransFirst works with Click & Pledge on a number of giving days throughout the year. In addition to Arizona Gives Day, initiatives in 2016 have included events for non-profits in Roanoke, Virginia; the state of Georgia; and national organizations with a nationwide giving day. “We take advantage of the best of all worlds with our TransFirst partnership,” says Razvan. “We can release new software at the speed of ideas that our customers demand, and we don’t have to worry about managing the money, credit and financing. It gives our customers the ultimate payment support system.”
TransFirst was acquired by TSYS on April 1, 2016.
