FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#communitybanks—Velocity Solutions, LLC, the leading provider of revenue enhancement solutions to regional and community financial institutions, relaunched its charitable giving program “Velocity Gives Back” in 2019.
The program’s format is simple and straightforward. When a Velocity Solutions client refers Velocity to a peer at another financial institution that could benefit from any of Velocity’s revenue-driving solutions, and if that referral results in an introductory meeting, Velocity will donate $500 to the charity, cause or organization of the referring client’s choice. There is no purchase or obligation required to the referring or referred financial institution other than the first introductory meeting.
Christopher Leonard, Velocity Solutions CEO, said, “We are proud to support organizations in the communities where we do business, national and global charities, scholarship funds and other causes important to our valuable clients. One of the main messages of our program is to ‘let our marketing budget fund your charitable donations’ and the response from our clients has been outstanding.”
Eileen Phelps, COO of Credit Union of America, a Velocity Solutions client, said: “We have chosen to give the donation to Project Teacher of Kansas. This organization allows teachers to ‘shop’ for school supplies at no cost to them. Ninety percent of students in Wichita qualify for subsidized lunches. Rarely are their parents able to fulfill the requested beginning-of-the-school-year supply list. This often leaves it up to the teacher to provide items out of their own pockets. We are a sponsor of this organization because CUA believes we reach both teachers and students through one united effort.”
Other organizations to which Velocity has donated on behalf of its clients include:
- Highland County Society for Children & Adults
- RMJ Foundation
- Young Life Northwest Atlanta
- Secret Meals for Hungry Children
