We’re partnering with National Processing Solutions (NPS) on a new form of fundraising which looks very promising. The basic idea is that when merchants sign on with NPS and VVCC, up to half of the credit card processing fees they pay NPS come to us to support the free services we provide. We anticipate that this format will provide regular, growing, monthly revenue, and will complement contributions from our strong donor base and expanding public and private grant funding.
You may be interested in joining our volunteer team to make brief presentations to local merchants. In our trial runs, presentations have been fun and merchants have been uniformly supportive. In fact, the only time we haven’t gotten a signup is when a merchant chooses to remain loyal to a different processing company. We’re looking for a half-day-per-week commitment from our volunteer team. If you’d like to know more, please call volunteer Jo Marco at 602 494-2722, and plan on attending an information session Friday, March 23rd or Friday the 30th from 2-3p in the conference room. And, please RSVP to Jo.
