Planet Fundraiser, a tech company based right here in Birmingham, helps businesses give back to charitable causes with ease.
That means businesses near you are looking to support causes that you care about!
Did you know that most local businesses want and are more likely to support your favorite school or nonprofit?
Most business owners know that philanthropy can be a powerful way to connect with customers and make a difference in their communities. They also have a unique opportunity to understand what their customers care about.
Building a charitable reputation can keep customers coming back and drive new business.
Although beneficial, that’s not to say there aren’t challenges with charitable giving for businesses.
Tracking, reporting, and billing all take time and money; creating barriers for owners to actively support charitable causes.
Not to mention, dealing with requests for donations is time-consuming, inefficient, and generally leaves business owners unsure of how their giving is resonating with their customers.
Fittingly, this tech company changes the game for local businesses; here’s how it works!
First, businesses decide how much they want to give back on purchases made at their stores, then shoppers visit Merchants and submit pictures of their receipts through the app to raise money for their cause.
Planet Fundraiser handles the rest.
This provides businesses with a charitable giving strategy to not only better their community, but also attract and keep customers for the long haul.
“We love how Planet Fundraiser gives us a performance-based way to support local schools and charities while allowing our customers to choose which cause they support.”
– Andy Virciglio, Piggly Wiggly Operator (Birmingham, AL)
There are also powerful tools Planet Fundraiser provides to drive business during slow times.
Business owners are provided detailed reporting of their charitable giving and can understand how it impacts their bottom line; it also gives them a quick response for fundraising requests to save them time and hassle.
“Our mission at Planet Fundraiser is to make it easy for anyone to give to worthy causes,”
-CEO Kasey Birdsong.
With Planet Fundraiser, you’re not just giving back. You’re investing in classrooms, funding research and programs, and committing to your community. A small action (like taking a picture of your receipt) repeated over time can change lives ❤️.
The End Goal…
