Unique Fundraising Partnership Extends the Reach of 501(c)3 Non-Profit
The Reliv Kalogris Foundation has recently joined several school districts and non-profit organizations as a participant in Integrity's Gift, a unique fundraising program that will make recurring financial donations to the Foundation every month.
The Reliv Kalogris Foundation’s mission is to provide nutritional support to communities in need around the world. As a 501(c)3, the Reliv Kalogris Foundation relies on the contributions of Reliv distributors to support that mission, Integrity’s Gift will help to increase donor activity by providing it with recurring monthly revenue.
“As a Reliv distributor and Kalogris supporter since 2008, as well as an employee of Integrity, I’ve seen firsthand what these donations can do to positively impact the lives of students, families and communities,” said Janet Summerfelt. “Integrity’s Gift to Kalogris has tremendous potential for significantly expanding feeding programs and offering community support in areas of the world that need it most.”
How Integrity’s Gift Works
When US-based businesses sign up for credit card processing throughIntegrity Payment Systems, Integrity’s Gift will donate a significant portion of its revenue back to the Kalogris Foundation, providing ongoing financial support for the organization. Integrity will match the credit card processing rates that business owners are currently paying, so participating in the program costs them nothing. In this way, businesses can form a group to give back to the causes they believe in without ever having to write a check or spend any of their own money.
The Gift That Keeps On Giving
Over 20 high school athletic programs and several other non-profit organizations are currently enrolled in Integrity’s Gift. Some of these programs earn as much as $2,000 per month from Integrity’s Gift—money that goes directly to the communities or causes they support.
Not only does Integrity’s Gift allow businesses to support organizations they care about without paying a dime, it also creates a unique word-of-mouth marketing opportunity for businesses. Any participating business receives its own listing on the Integrity’s Gift website as well as complementary social media marketing to drive more traffic to the business, boosting sales and increasing the size of Integrity’s Gift.
“When we came up with the idea of Integrity’s Gift, the intention was always to give back to communities through our business,” said Mike Ponder, CEO & President of Integrity. “With the addition of the Reliv Kalogris Foundation to the Integrity’s Gift program, we continue to achieve that goal. We are proud to support the work that the Foundation is doing throughout the globe.”
About the Reliv Kalogris Foundation
Reliv established the Kalogris Foundation in 1995 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in honor of the late Dr. Theodore "Ted" Kalogris who created the nutritional formula that would become Reliv Classic®, the company's original product.
"Be ashamed to die until you have scored a victory for mankind," Dr. Ted's father advised him when he was still young, a motto that inspired Dr. Ted to start on a mission to help combat hunger. Dr. Ted's passion, combined with Reliv Chairman, President and CEO Robert Montgomery's vision, launched Reliv's mission to nourish our world.
