We do not decide what organization you want to support. You have complete control over that decision.

Q. How much is this really going to cost me?
A. We know that it is becoming ever more difficult to contribute any kind of financial assistance to the organizations that you really want to support and that is why the Guardian Giving program not only does not cost you anything above what you are already spending on your credit card processing, it actually saves you money by lowering your current credit card processing fees. Our program provides the Not for Profit organization with an ongoing income allowing them to focus on the good that their organization does and it allows your business the freedom to contribute money to an organization of your choice even when you don’t feel like there is any money to give. That is the beauty of this program. Everyone wins.
