VIDEO: HOW IT WORKS
Banks profit on every purchase while non-profits remain underfunded
There are over 1.5 million nonprofits in the USA. These are the organizations working to make the world a better place, but they are chronically underfunded don’t have enough money to get the job done...
Last year credit & debit card processing fees generated over $60 billion in revenue for financial institutions.
THE SOLUTION: REDIRECT THE REVENUE
Groundswell is licensed as a bank so we can redirect the revenue
Acquire our own Bank Identification Number (BIN) and Visa License to gain access to the processing fees. Now we can partner with nonprofits to distribute co-branded debit cards to their loyal supporters, who become our customers, and together we share in the processing fees.
Traditional Bank Cards
Processing fees fund executive bonuses and corporate jets
Processing fees help make the world a better place
Groundswell Grows + Non-profits Benefit = Better Future
We provide the debit cards, our nonprofit partners provide the customers. Groundswell created a new way for nonprofits to engage their supporters and increase contributions. Now organizations like The Sierra Club or NPR can brand debit cards for their members and earn with every purchase they make. It’s a WIN for the organizations, a WIN for GroundSwell, and most importantly is a WIN for the people, animals, and planet we all share.
We Make it Easy
GroundSwell handles all the financial and regulatory duties, we even help with the marketing to ensure the debit cards are being used.
Branded Cards and Loyal Customer Base
Organizations help design branded cards for their members. Now organizations like The Red Cross, Greenpeace, or The Boys & Girls Club can issue debit cards to their massive communities.
Save the World
Every time a purchase is made with the card, the organization gets funded. When a Charity Water card owner buys groceries - money is automatically directed towards safe, clean water.

We're Launching This Summer
June 26, 2017
It is time, time to make a positive difference…”to give a shit”, if I may quote one of my favorite contemporary movies (Guardians).
We have pushed the planet to a critical point, now we must act in the fastest way possible to make it better. Movements are defined as “a group of people working together to advance their shared political, social, or artistic ideas”. GroundSwell is our opportunity to come together and make that positive change. To allow people to act in a conscious manner and support critical organizations dedicated to making the world a better place. Now, a simple purchase, something we do everyday, is an act of solidarity - a contribution to that movement.
What better way to launch a GroundSwell than with crowdfunding? Our mission is strongest with the widest number of people participating. It is the time to get behind something, to take a stand in whatever way you can.
