REGUS HELPS MEMBERS GET CHARITABLE

Partnership Launched Between Regus And Global Donation Platform Ammado

Global workspace provider Regus is helping its members across the globe to establish their own charity fundraising initiatives via a new app.

Regus has entered into a partnership with Ammado, the global platform offering online fundraising and donation services to not-for-profits and charities. The partnership means that through MyRegus Charities and Causes - part of Regus App suite offers an innovative way for our members to work productively - Regus members can engage customers and employees in online giving and fundraising using a single tool globally: promote charity initiatives, donate, view progress towards fundraising targets and track donations. Funds raised can be donated directly to any one of 1.6 million non-profit companies worldwide, with donations accepted in over 75 currencies. In addition, companies can purchase donation gift cards as incentives or rewards for employees and customers which allow the recipient to give to their charity of choice.

Andre Sharpe, Chief Information and Innovation Officer at Regus, comments: “Businesses love to give back to good causes but often the logistics of setting-up a charity or community fundraising campaign can delay or deter such good intentions. By bringing together the power of two global platforms in the shape of Regus and Ammado, Regus Charities and Causes makes charitable giving quick and simple for all businesses, from initial set-up to tracking and donating."

Rudy Lobo, CXO at Regus, noted; “When working in different countries, time zones and with multiple currencies we need to make everything easier for our teams and customers to leverage giving and get the most for the beneficiaries supported. We believe this will ultimately benefit the great causes we are all engaged with across the globe”.

“Businesses and the communities in which they operate in are intrinsically linked.” said Peter Conlon, CEO of Ammado. “Partnering with Regus is an extremely exciting way to give the Regus community of companies, both small and large in 106 countries, the tools to enable them to make a positive difference in local communities worldwide."
