Global workspace provider Regus is helping its members to set up their own charity fundraising initiatives via an app from global online fundraising platform Ammado.
The app, MyRegus Charities and Causes, is part of the Regus App suite which is designed to help the company’s members work productively.
Users of Regus’ services can now set up their own corporate charity appeal, and engage with customers and employees, inviting them to support the appeal. Funds can be raised for any one of 1.6 nonprofit organisations around the world.
Donations can be handled in over 75 currencies. As a result, Regus expects it customers to use the app to benefit communities and causes worldwide.
Companies can also purchase donation gift cards from Ammado via the app to offer as incentives or rewards for employees and customers who support their campaign. The recipient can then donate the value of the card to their charity of choice.
Companies that set up an online appeal via the Regus app can use it to promote their charity initiatives, donate, track donations and view progress towards fundraising targets.
Andre Sharpe, Chief Information and Innovation Officer at Regus, explained the partnership with Ammado, saying:
“Businesses love to give back to good causes but often the logistics of setting-up a charity or community fundraising campaign can delay or deter such good intentions. By bringing together the power of two global platforms in the shape of Regus and Ammado, Regus Charities and Causes makes charitable giving quick and simple for all businesses, from initial set-up to tracking and donating”.
Rudy Lobo, CXO at Regus, added:
“When working in different countries, time zones and with multiple currencies we need to make everything easier for our teams and customers to leverage giving and get the most for the beneficiaries supported. We believe this will ultimately benefit the great causes we are all engaged with across the globe”.
