This video was broadcast at the Global Citizen Festival on September 23, 2023, in New York City.
This video features:
- David DeParolesa, CEO of Give Lively
- Jared Isaacson, Founder and CEO of Shift4
[The voices of the two speakers continue nonstop, even when the video shows people using technology and engaged in nonprofit work.]
David DeParolesa: Nonprofits are on the frontlines of the world's most pressing social needs. YOU donate to great causes with the hope that every dollar you give arrives at its destination quickly and efficiently.
What you don't know is that behind the scenes, many nonprofits are forced to use tech that charges ridiculous fees. These platforms can also be cumbersome and hard to use, causing nonprofits to lose valuable time that could be better spent on their work.
Jared Isaacson: Nonprofits are responsible for some of the greatest innovation that’s happening in the world. But their doors are closed to way too many donors. Hundreds of millions of people are using technologies like crypto or Apple Pay. And if charities aren’t equipped to meet these donors where they are, then they risk being left behind during the greatest wealth transfer in human history.
David: By pairing Give Lively's powerful, practical and free fundraising technology with Shift4's industry-leading nonprofit payment processing, we can accelerate social good on a massive scale.
Jared: This is about empowering nonprofits and lowering their fees to make sure more of what you give will actually get into the hands of the causes you care about most.
David: It's about simplifying the lives of those who dedicate themselves to nonprofit work, allowing them to spend less time navigating complexities and more time making a difference.
