Giving Is Good – How Much Did We Donate Last Year?

USConnect believes in helping our communities, and we know that you do too! That’s why at participating locations, we donate 1.5% of every dollar you spend with your USConnect account to the charity of your choice. Now you can get something good and do something good at the same time.12671615_522694887910273_7877615716230901176_o

Here’s how our program works: USConnect affiliates fund charitable contributions based on the purchases you make with your USConnect account. The uniqueness of our program is that you get to pick the charity you want to contribute to. We want to modernize the charitable donation process based on individuality. We all have causes we care about, and our system allows you to support the causes that are most important to you. Last year, for instance, USConnect customers and affiliates gave $3,868 to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a national nonprofit. They also made donations to more than 120 other nonprofits and charities, some local and some national. Soup kitchens, animal shelters, hospitals: USConnect’s matching donations fund them all.

Giving back is personal, and USConnect is taking charitable donations to the next level; our goal is to hit $1 million in donations! Since USConnect is still in its infancy—we launched in late 2013—this goal is likely to be a reality in the near future. USConnect’s growth rate continues to be in excess of one hundred percent a year, and our nationwide loyalty, promotion, and charitable program is just getting off the ground. We also just launched our USConnectMe app, which will elevate awareness and adoption of our program.

USConnect is just what its name says: independent American companies working together to connect with each other, our customers, and the communities we live in. We’re in the business of helping people, and USConnect customers get to be a part of that business every day.
