How We Do It

We’ve built a company that partners with nonprofits to create new sources of funding without cost to the organization and their supporters.

Why do we do it?

It’s simple. Nonprofits make the world a better place, and we need to help them. GroundSwell allows card holders to support their favorite nonprofits by purchasing with purpose.


How does it work?

In short, we’ve partnered with Visa, a bank, and a payment processor to handle all the behind-the-scenes financial stuff. This arrangement allows us to focus on what matters most – redirecting processing fees to important causes.

How is GroundSwell different?

Unlike most financial companies, supporting good causes is GroundSwell’s primary mission. We enable nonprofits to create a new recurring revenue stream by making it easy for members to support them without having to give more.


We are actively looking for nonprofit partners, community partners, and professionals looking to connect.
