on-line Unified Giving Solution

Posted to Announcement by Mr. Mike Kline of Affinity 24 at 11:53 AM

Hi, my name is Mike Kline and I am a long-time resident of Bensalem, PA and a fellow member of the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. I would like to introduce the Not-For-Profit, 501-(c) 3’s (NFP’s) Members of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce to the world's premier, on-line Unified Giving Solution. Our Program can accept both Cash and Non-Cash Donations and is known as CoreDonate.
Our parent company, Cornerstone Payment Systems (www.CornerstonePaymentSystems.com), has partnered with a separate very successful company out of Dallas, TX, who is our liquidator and who handles all of the physical processing of Non-Cash donations into our Program. Our Liquidator has been in operation for 7 years and is partially owned by David Green, a wealthy American and CEO and founder of Hobby Lobby, a chain of arts and crafts stores. Green is the son of an Assemblies of God preacher, and claims to have built his business squarely on biblical principles.
In an effort to help ministries and other qualifying Not-For-Profit, 501-(c)3's to raise additional donations, Mr. Green developed a new, innovative and revolutionary way for NFP’s to receive all in-kind type donations in one on-line vehicle we call our Unified Giving Solution. CoreDonate provides the vehicle for NFP's to be able to receive donations such as Vehicles, Electronics, Real Estate, Stocks, Commodities, Business Inventories, Precious Metals, Gift Cards and many other articles of value. Through our Liquidator, we convert those articles into cash, with no involvement by the NFP’s organizations regarding physical processing of each donation. CoreDonate takes on the burden of logistics receipting and IRS compliance from anywhere in the United States. The NFP’s also is given access to track and monitor each donor and the items donated through a provided back office. In addition, there are at least 60 different ways explained in detail so that the NFP’s can reach their donors and educate them regarding their new Gift Giving Solution.
After seven years of working with over 1,300 NFP's, this new fund raising on-line solution has proven to increase overall donations by 20% and higher.
In conclusion, CoreDonate is a solutions based organization helping Not-For-Profit, 501-(c)3's to cut costs and build wealth in order to help as many people in need as possible.
If you would like to learn more about this exciting opportunity to help your organization in a monumental way, please feel free to contact me at 267-218-3221 or via e-mail at mike@mndventures.com, and I'd be happy to meet with you.
