SPIRE-NetGiver partnership delivers financial impact to local charities

FALCON HEIGHTS, MN (January 15, 2021) — SPIRE Credit Union ran the “Give Freely” giving campaign this holiday season, offering a $20,000 match to SPIRE members who used the NetGiver app to support charities of their choice.

During the 21-day campaign, SPIRE members donated a total of $23,883.  Through the campaign, SPIRE witnessed the passion and dedication members have for their favorite nonprofit organizations. Because of this, SPIRE raised its match from $20,000 to $23,883, ensuring every donation was matched! The total impact of the campaign was $47,765.

SPIRE has partnered with NetGiver to help charities reduce the fees that they pay on donations.  Net Giver is a donation app that allows credit union members to give to charitable causes, with zero fees to organizations or donors.  Other payment platforms charge in excess of 7.5% of the transaction, so charities do not receive the full amount of the donation.  Throughout 2020, NetGiver collected a total of $242,948 (of which $17,000 would have been lost to fees) from 718 donors, benefitting 351 nonprofits.

“We want people to become aware of the Net Giver app,” said Dan Stoltz, President and CEO of SPIRE Credit Union ”And use it when they do their giving so that deserving charities can receive 100% of the donations given to them.”
