The Network of Giving is a proprietary and powerful, hyper-local digital platform enabled by financial services. The platform fosters a community-minded movement through the connection of consumers and local merchants to community organizations while creating efficiencies in digital fundraising. Through digital commerce and merchant-defined, micro-donations, the Network of Giving democratizes the digital tools local merchants need to grow their business. At no cost to customers, the Network of Giving provides the outlet customers need to support local business and local organizations to benefit the economy and the communities where they live.
Special Olympics and the United Way, in partnership with the Network of Giving, embrace this innovative and fully automated digital solution that unites them in their missions. The Network of Giving platform provides financial institutions, merchants, and communities with collaborative opportunities to reach caring local consumers.
"We are excited to bring the Network of Giving to the world's stage in Davos. The platform is committed to driving financial and social empowerment while creating positive change in communities," stated Rob Bennett, CEO, SMB4.0, the organization that powers the Network of Giving.
