YourCause partners with Canada’s leading online charitable donation processor to expand the giving tools of the CSRconnect employee engagement platform.
YourCause announces a partnership with the nonprofit organization CanadaHelps, preferred donor processing solution for Canadian charities. The partnership is the latest international development of YourCause’s employee engagement solution, CSRconnect, and provides multinational companies the ability to search, find, and donate to more than 80,000 valid Canadian nonprofit organizations. The Canadian processor implements this summer and will be available to interested clients in the coming weeks.
“Making this partnership a reality required significant work between YourCause and CanadaHelps,” said Matthew Combs, Founder & CEO of YourCause. “Though all the more rewarding, we’ve arrived at an effective, exciting solution for our multinational client’s needs while continuing the mission of CanadaHelps.”
CSRconnect seamlessly integrates with the CanadaHelps system by way of an updated application programming interface (API) that transacts credit card donations to current charitable organizations vetted and approved by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). YourCause nears the completion of the necessary technical methods for capturing all local currency transaction details, calculating the associated exchange rates, and reporting on all non US dollar donations made through the system.
“We pride ourselves in strategically partnering with a company dedicated to supporting corporate employee charitable programs,” said Owen Charters, CEO of CanadaHelps. “This partnership will further giving opportunities and ultimately increase charitable donations in Canada.”
The most recent partnership with CanadaHelps adds to the growing list of companies connecting with YourCause to deliver international services and capabilities within the CSRconnect employee engagement platform. The company continues to seek new partners, both domestically and internationally, for better delivering its services and capabilities to multinational corporations of all sizes.
The company expects to fully roll out the Canadian donation capabilities, with CanadaHelps, during the summer of 2012.
CanadaHelps is a registered charity and public foundation with a goal to make giving simple. Through CanadaHelps.org, more than $250 million in charitable donations have been facilitated since launching in 2000. Their mission is to engage Canadians in the charitable sector, providing accessible and affordable online technology to both donors and charities to promote- and ultimately increase- charitable giving in Canada.
