How does Get Loud Now fundraise for nonprofits and advocacy groups?
We use PandaPay.io to process and account for automated nonprofit payments. They are trusted by large retail brands like Patagonia as well as large nonprofits. Also we are working on a product for nonprofit advocacy groups that will help them create letter writing campaigns and raise money for their causes. If you want more info about this, please contact us. Also, every quarter, we donate 10% of proceeds to a group of nonprofits whose missions align with our values. We keep an updated list of those nonprofits here.
