Westbury, NY, December 12, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- IRN Payment Systems, a leader in the credit card processing industry, today announced a partnership with Discover Financial Services to benefit charitable organizations. The Hope Process, a charitable program created by Dino Sgueglia, President and Founder of IRN Payment Systems, was originally created to support his foundation, Danny’sWish.org, named after his son to raise awareness of Autism and Autism-related disorders.
Powered by IRN Payment Systems, The Hope Process entitles businesses to a rebate based on their credit card processing that may be donated to the charitable organization of their choice. Participating merchants benefit by being able to provide donations to their favorite charities, without increasing costs or changing the way they accept credit cards. Additionally, the donations merchants make are tax deductible. The charities benefit from a recurring stream of merchant monthly donations that help them fulfill their missions. For the first year, IRN will donate one hundred (100) percent of the proceeds to charities and twenty-five percent will be donated each year thereafter.
In conjunction with IRN’s rebate, Discover announced that they will double the contribution on all Discover processing fees through December 2010.
“As the father of an Autistic child, I learned the importance of charitable giving to support good causes and recently started Danny’sWish.org, an organization named after my son, that provides funds for Autistic charities and services,” said Sgueglia. “Realizing the difficulties all charities have in acquiring donations and maintaining a sustainable fundraising base, The Hope Process was created in an effort to help all charities with this challenge and I appreciate Discover’s partnership and enthusiastic support of our program.”
“Discover is honored to participate in a program with such a powerful mission that provides real benefits to so many different charitable organizations.” said Matt Johanson, Vice President, Acquirer Relations at Discover. “This program represents a great way for merchants to give back to the charity of their choice during these challenging economic times.”
