Bank of New Hampshire’s Giving Tuesday campaign, Powered by Givio’s Charitable Banking platform, Raised $50,000
Laconia, New Hampshire – December 20, 2022 – Bank of New Hampshire’s Matching Gift campaign centered around Giving Tuesday and powered by Givio’s Charitable Banking™ platform, raised $50,000 for more than 100 area non-profits in record time.
The campaign, in recognition of Giving Tuesday, which took place on November 29 this year, was so successful the original goal of a $20,000 match on any donation made through BNH’s digital banking portal, was reached in just a matter of days, prompting BNH to raise the match ceiling to $25,000. The new goal was reached just a few days later – a remarkable 26 days before the December 31 deadline.
Givio’s Charitable Banking platform enables BNH customers to donate to all their favorite charities, schools, and religious organizations, directly from their secure and convenient BNH online banking. A banking industry first, Givio enables BNH customers to easily track all their charitable donations in one easy, secure place – a true time saver at tax time. Additionally, Givio enables BNH to launch its own fundraising campaigns that they can share and promote to their customers and the community. BNH launched Givio on November 1 and it is available to retail customers now. Customers will see a new link in their online banking portal that says ‘Marketplace’, under which they’ll find the ‘Donate to Charity’ link.
“We are proud to partner with a community leader like BNH in order to have such a positive impact on the communities they serve throughout the greater New Hampshire region,” said Gary Carr, CEO of Givio, Inc. “The impact that these funds will have on the local level for the non-profit recipients will be felt for years to come and will truly make a difference in the lives of the countless people served by these organizations.”
Givio is safe and simple to use. BNH customers can search for and easily find their favorite nonprofit organizations, or they can explore various cause categories like Animals, Disaster Relief, Education, Health and more to discover nonprofits to which they may want to donate. Customers can also bookmark their favorite organizations for easy access to give quickly, anytime inspiration strikes. Among the non-profits receiving funds from this year’s BNH Giving Tuesday campaign are Gilda’s Club New Hampshire, Claremont Soup Kitchen, Conway Area Humane Society and the Boys and Girls Club of the North Country. Only IRS approved 501c3 organizations are available in the Givio database. As an added benefit, BNH can expand its own community impact efforts by not only allowing customers to easily donate to all their favorite causes, but by being able to launch and promote matching gift campaigns to customers, driving campaign participation.
“We’re thrilled with the success of this campaign,” said Givio Chief Marketing Officer, Cindy McLaughlin. “People love to donate to causes that are near and dear to their hearts and most people donate to several nonprofits, multiple times, every year. But traditionally, that requires people to visit multiple websites, fill out long registration forms, remember passwords and use different payment methods. Trying to track all those donations is even harder. Together, BNH and Givio are giving donors a better experience. From ensuring a nonprofit is in good standing with the IRS, to making the process convenient, secure – and if the donor wants — private, Givio makes charitable giving a truly rewarding experience,” she said.
“Bank of New Hampshire and our customers have a strong commitment to our communities, and the success of this campaign clearly demonstrates that commitment,” said Julie Fenn, Marketing & Digital Media Specialist for Bank of New Hampshire. “Givio allows us to provide a secure, fast and simple way for our customers to make their donations to the charitable causes that are most important to them. We quickly reached our initial matching goal of $20,000, increased it to $25,000 and met that goal in just a few days – a clear sign of not just the generosity of our customers but how easy it is to use Givio’s Charitable Banking platform.”
