We’re really excited to see how this collaboration will equip donors to take a simple step that transforms lives in some of the hardest-to-reach places in our world”
— Audrey Moore, Chief Executive Officer at LUV
BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, January 11, 2023 / -- Lift Up the Vulnerable (LUV) is working to bring unique and creative ways to fundraise to our community and has recently started working with CardFunder, a new fundraising platform. CardFunder allows nonprofits to turn unwanted gift cards into fundraising dollars. Recently, CardFunder launched its online giving platform and Mobile App, which makes fundraising even easier—and donating even more convenient. Donors can give new or partially used gift cards directly through the Lift Up the Vulnerable online campaign page or via Mobile APP powered by CardFunder.

This free tool allows donors to contribute from anywhere in the U.S., making it a game-changer for nonprofit fundraising. “We want to provide creative and innovative ways for our partners to support the mission of preventing human trafficking in warzones. By using CardFunder, they can turn an unused gift to them into a life-changing gift for a child or woman vulnerable to exploitation. It’s a win-win for everyone we partner with and serve,” said Audrey Moore, Chief Executive Officer at LUV. Organizations can easily hold a virtual or hybrid fundraiser that solicits gift card donations from supporters across the nation.

“We are honored to support LUV’s mission to prevent human trafficking,” said Russ Howard, CEO at CardFunder.” By giving nonprofits an innovative new avenue for fundraising, CardFunder allows them to tap into the billions of unused gift card dollars. Americans have $21 billion in unused gift card funds, averaging $175 per person. Much of that amount will go to waste unless we pursue innovative ways of tapping into those funds. Many people forget to spend their gift card money or didn’t want it to begin with.

Why let these unwanted funds go to waste? With the help of CardFunder, ACCO can set up a fundraiser in minutes. Then, they share their link on their social networks, posting it on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. They also receive a QR code and URL-sharing link. Donors scan their gift cards and enter the numbers following simple prompts.

“We’re really excited to see how this collaboration will equip donors to take a simple step that transforms lives in some of the hardest-to-reach places in our world,” said Moore.
