For Good Causes is creating new ways to give. We enable people to donate to causes they love, without always putting their hand in their pocket. We’re tapping into the £7bn of unused loyalty points and rewards and other sources of unused values, as well as the millions of new rewards that are earnt every day as brands seek to acquire new customers, activate existing and lapsed customers, drive usage, increase loyalty and service their customers. Our Empowering Generosity™ platform is used by brands who wish to embed philanthropy, giving and doing good in their consumer, business and employee reward and incentives strategies. It represents a brand-new income stream for charities and turns unused value into a force for good.
It’s a brand new currency for giving.
