Q. What is Guardian Giving?
A. Guardian Giving provides Not for Profit organizations (Charities, schools, foundations, etc.) with a revenue sharing opportunity. Guardian Giving helps the Not for Profit organization partner with businesses who already support their cause or have wanted too, but just have not been able to commit those funds for one reason or another all with no cost to the business. All donations come from the income generated from the business using the credit card processing services associated with Guardian Giving.

Q. How much income will each businesses credit card processing generate for our organization?
A.  This is a difficult question to answer since every business processes a different volume in credit card processing. They also have different transaction sizes and methods of processing those transactions. We will also in many cases have to get very competitive in the pricing to provide the business with a cost savings from the rates and fees they are already processing with.
That being said there are some pretty average numbers that we can use to give you an example of what would happen. The average merchant who processes 5K to 10K a month in credit card transactions will provide somewhere around $5 to $10 dollars a month in income. The business that processes between $25K and $50K a month in transactions will provide somewhere around $30 to $100 a month in income. A business that processes $100K to $200K a month could provide an income between $200 and $300 a month. So as you can see this can add up to a significant amount on an ongoing basis.
