Americans have fallen behind. The US Census Bureau calls the 2000s the “lost decade.” Between 2000 and 2010, our average household income fell almost four percent. And our homes lost value, leaving almost one third of us “underwater” in 2012.
As we have fallen behind, our public institutions have fallen behind too. In September 2012, the US budget deficit topped $16 trillion. And while our state and local governments have started to see revenues increase, budget deficits are still the norm.
Non-profit organizations in our communities across the nation have tried to break the fall. During the lost decade, the number of non-profit organizations increased around 48 percent, to almost 630,000.
And non-profit revenues increased too - up almost 35 percent. But while revenues increased, expenses increased more - up over 50 percent. Traditional fundraising methods have not been enough, so our non-profits have fallen behind with us.
We aim to catch them up. We collaborate with the business and merchant processor communities to generate sustainable revenue for the non-profit organizations in your community.
You make a credit card purchase from a business, the business chooses a non-profit, and the merchant processor donates a portion of the credit card transaction fee to the non-profit - at no additional cost to the business, and at no cost to the non-profit. We all win. And we all catch up.
