The partnership supports the growing demand for increased international vetting and program expansion beyond the United States. It allows YourCause to decrease client’s international liability while increasing the international boundaries of their programs.
“We’re excited to see this partnership come to fruition,” said Matthew Combs, Founder and CEO of YourCause. “Previous engagements with the UniversalGiving team show they are professional, thorough and responsive to the needs of our clients.”
The partnership with UniversalGiving immediately enhances YourCause’s ability to provide clients with NGO vetting services fully customized to corporate programs and aligned with due-diligence requirements. UniversalGiving brings to YourCause multiple options for NGO vetting services, which offer different levels of security necessary for international giving.
UniversalGiving, recognized as one of the industry leaders in custom NGO vetting services, utilizes a multi-point vetting process to identify organizations and requirements set forth by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). By providing security measures on numerous levels (legal, brand, and employee safety) UniversalGiving is a reliable and trusted source for quality vetting and equivalency determination services.
“UniversalGiving is thrilled to be working with YourCause,” said Pamela Hawley, CEO of UniversalGiving. “Our organizations align well in that both desire to provide flexible vetting options for corporations to donate to secure and safe charities around the world.”
