Bluffton-based Credit Card Payment Processing Company Committed to “Processing Payments with a Purpose” Continues to Give Back to Local and National Causes

Bluffton, SC, November 2022 — Pay Proudly, the Bluffton-based credit card payment processing company that is committed to giving back to causes that their merchants care about, has donated $5,000 to Bluffton Self Help. The donation, which was presented on November 4th, will play an important role in helping Bluffton Self Help as they continue to empower and advocate for Lowcountry neighbors to improve their lives through education and training, basic needs and guided access to a network of community resources.

Founded with a mission of providing merchants with a way to “process payments with a purpose”, Pay Proudly has created a unique business model for credit card processing that not only saves every merchant a significant amount of money, but also provides business owners with an extraordinary opportunity to give back to causes that are important to them at no additional expense to their company. Pay Proudly directs a portion of unavoidable credit card processing fees to local non-profits and charities on behalf of their merchants – and is committed to providing credit card processing clarity to business owners and charity for the local community.

The donation to Bluffton Self Help is the latest donation made by Pay Proudly, founded in 2019 by Jeff Maine. Jeff created Pay Proudly as a way to help business owners by providing a cost-effective, personalized approach to credit card processing, while making a difference in the world – creating and building his company around a unique “give-back” concept. To date, Pay Proudly has donated more than $75,000 to numerous charities — helping to make a difference both in the Lowcountry and beyond.

We are thrilled to present this donation to Bluffton Self Help to help them as they continue to provide such vital programs and services throughout our community,” said Jeff. “Pay Proudly is all about giving back to help others, and we are so happy to play a role in helping this important organization as they continue to help so many others in need throughout the community.”

Bluffton Self Help focuses on empowering our Lowcountry neighbors to improve their lives through an individualized, holistic approach, engaging with every aspect of their life. With more neighbors economically at risk than financially secure, Bluffton Self Help is leading a coordinated response to how human services are being offered in our community, and envisions communities where everyone has equal access to essential tools and resources to support their journey towards personal success.
