Calgary, Alberta – November, 15 2016 – Benevity, Inc., the global leader in online workplace giving, matching, volunteering and community investment software, is pleased to announce our supporting role in the launch of Apple Pay for charities – an easy, secure and private way to make and accept donations that’s fast and convenient.
Benevity will support Apple in the nonprofit vetting and eligibility process for Apple Pay using the Benevity Causes Portal. With over 2 million charities from more than 200 countries in its global database, Benevity boasts the largest network for distributing funds efficiently to nonprofit organizations. Apple Pay for donations is available now for nonprofit organizations based in the United States.
“Making charitable giving easier and more prevalent has always been at the heart of what we do,” said Bryan de Lottinville, CEO and founder of Benevity. “For almost a decade, Benevity has been providing Fortune 1000 companies with technology to enable their people to easily and securely donate to the causes that matter to them. Today, we’re excited to be supporting the launch of Apple Pay as a donation method so that more people, can do more good, in a more efficient way.”
Donating through apps and on websites accepting Apple Pay is as simple as the touch of a finger with Touch ID, so there’s no need to manually fill out lengthy account forms or repeatedly type in shipping and billing information.
When making payments for goods, services and donations on the go in apps or Safari, Apple Pay works with iPhone 6 and later, iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad mini 3 and later. You can also use Apple Pay in Safari on any Mac introduced in or after 2012 running macOS Sierra and confirm the payment with iPhone 6 or later or Apple Watch, or with Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro.
Nonprofits who want to enable Apple Pay to accept donations can get more details from Apple.
