Receive donations without asking for a dime…
The First Financial Giveback program allows you to generate the donations you need without having to use the typical fundraising techniques. Partner with us and we’ll show you how to get a check in the mail quarterly without any effort.
What is the GiveBack program?
The GiveBack program was initiated in fall of 2005 when our founder, John Eliason, discovered he was in the unique position to donate to charities by redirecting existing funds instead of creating new ones. In the credit card industry, merchants pay a fee to have the money they make from credit cards turned into cash. The GiveBack program takes part of that fee that the merchants already pay and donates it to charity
How does our organization earn revenue with First Financial Merchant Services?
When merchants friendly to your organization process their credit card transactions utilizing First Financial GiveBack program, your organization receives ongoing quarterly financial donations. When they accept cards they pay a fee for that service, when First Financial is the one processing their cards, part of that fee will go to your organization. The money already exists! We simply direct funds to you rather than earning it as a profit. You may use this money any way you choose.
How much income can our organization receive?
When you work with First Financial Merchant Services on drives you may earn as much as $1,000 – $50,000 or more annually. Your income will depend on how many supporters you have and how friendly to your cause your supporters are. For organizations who want to earn even more money, we have a complete marketing program that we can implement for you that would attract more merchants to sign up in your name and allow you to generate even more donations through our program. The effort you put in is very minimal; we can take care of almost everything.
A few of our supporters do not currently accept credit cards, but would like to. Can First Financial Merchant Services help them get set up to accept cards?
Yes. First Financial Merchant Services would be more than happy to get them processing their cards with us and donating part of their merchant service fee to you.
Do our supporters (merchants) pay more to support our organization through First Financial Merchant Services?
No. In fact often our rates are a bit less than you’re used to paying and our monthly statements are usually much easier to read.
Do merchants need to get new card swiping equipment to participate in the First Financial Merchant Services GiveBack program?
No. If the merchant has a desire to upgrade card-processing equipment we can usually fulfill their specifications or accommodate their system updates, we do not typically require any changes.
