SAN FRANCISCO, April 25, 2023 – Snappy, a leading corporate gifting platform, has partnered with Change, a technology platform powering donations and social impact, to support earthquake relief efforts in Turkey and Syria. Change provides the technology that allows Snappy gift recipients to choose charitable donations as one of their gift options, broadening the opportunity to give back. At time of publishing, Snappy customers have raised over $20,000 to organizations that are helping in impacted regions.
Following the devastating earthquakes in Turkey and Syria, relief organizations sounded the alarm to support rebuilding efforts. Because Change provides access to over 1 million accredited charities and vets organizations to support during times of crisis, Snappy was able to quickly add new nonprofit options to their curated gift collections. Over a period of two months, Snappy raised over $20,000 for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the Syrian American Medical Society Foundation, and Project Hope.
Snappy recipients have the ability to donate their gift to theme-based causes. Change manages the regulatory and compliance components associated with donating to multiple nonprofits, providing a consolidated tax receipt and managing nonprofit verification to ensure that donations are directed only to trusted and credible organizations. Due to this relieved burden, Snappy is able to seamlessly integrate charitable giving opportunities into their platform.
