BROOKFIELD, Wis. (11/25/14)--Financial services technology provider Fiserv Inc. has announced the launch of Season of Giving, a charitable giving campaign benefiting the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization Good360.
Through Dec. 31, each time someone sends money using the Popmoney personal payment service at one of nearly 200 participating financial institutions, $1 will be donated, up to $50,000, to Good360.
Good360 connects businesses who have excess goods with the charities and people who need them. They work with companies, individuals and a network of more than 40,000 pre-qualified charities in communities throughout the world to distribute more than $300 million in products each year, helping children, veterans, families, disaster relief efforts and more.
"This Season of Giving campaign will help unleash nearly $1.5 million in product donations to help improve people's lives," said Cindy Hallberlin, Good360 president/CEO. "Every $1 donated to Good360 allows us to distribute an average of $30 worth of essential products. Popmoney users will be giving a lot of good this holiday season, and we're incredibly grateful for this partnership."
With Popmoney, consumers can send money to and receive money from friends, family and others they know or owe using their existing account. The Popmoney service allows users to send money electronically using the recipient's name and email address or mobile phone number.
The service is commonly used for sending and receiving money for rent, splitting shared bills, and monetary gifts. While monetary gifts are a Top Five Popmoney payment type year-round, there is a marked increase in gifting payments during the holiday season.
