Bluffton-based Credit Card Processing Company with Mission of “Clarity and Charity”

Gives Back to 10 Local Non-Profits During 10 Days in December

Bluffton, SC, December 2022 – Pay Proudly, the Bluffton, South Carolina-based credit card processing company, has always been proud of its unique give-back platform that enables them to donate to local charities on behalf of their merchants, at no additional cost to merchants. This holiday season, the company was even more proud to have been able to donate to 10 local charities in a single 10-day period – presenting donation checks to one charity per day through Pay Proudly’s “10 Days of Christmas Giving” campaign.

The Pay Proudly “10 Days of Christmas Giving” campaign took place from December 10 – December 20th – with Pay Proudly surprising a local charity each day with a donation ranging from $250 to $4,000. Charities were chosen for the program based on input from Pay Proudly’s clients, with selected non-profits representing some of the organizations most important to merchants. Charities were presented with news of the donation, and checks for their organization, by Pay Proudly founder and CEO Jeff Maine, along with other key members of the Pay Proudly team, in conjunction with the holiday season.

We were thrilled to be able to celebrate the season of giving through this campaign, helping to make the holidays a bit brighter for 10 local charities with these donations,” said Maine, who founded the company in 2019 as a way to both save merchants money on their credit card processing while also giving back to local causes. “Those 10 days of giving, and the donations that we were able to make on behalf of our merchants, will continue to have an important impact on so many people throughout our community in 2023, and we are proud of the role that we played in brightening the holidays, and the year ahead, for so many people through this campaign.”

Through Pay Proudly’s unique business model, merchants are able to get the best rates on their credit card processing — while also seeing a percentage of all collected fees given to local nonprofits. Prior to this holiday campaign, Pay Proudly had donated more than $75,000 to local and national charities on behalf of their merchants – with the “10 Days of Christmas Giving” contributing an additional $8,250 to important local causes.
