One of Alyce’s core values is to Give First, Give Consistently. From our internal culture to how we interact with our customers to building our product, we try to incorporate this “give first” mindset into everything we do.
A cornerstone of giving first is giving back. We launched Charitable Donations as a gifting option within Alyce’s Gifting Platform. Since January 2020, we’ve seen platform-wide donations total $625,000 in Alyce.
Think about all the corporate gifts that might have gone into a landfill if users weren’t given a chance to do good with their marketing dollars and donate their gift values back to charity.
There are two easy ways to pay it forward through Alyce.
Users can send a charitable donation to their gift recipient, or a recipient can decide to donate their gift’s value. Through both methods, more and more users each quarter are finding ways to support international, national, and local charities close to their hearts.
This increasing volume of charitable giving inspired us to launch our Alyce Match Program to boost the impact of Alyce users. The Alyce Match Program is a commitment to match funds to the highest donated-to-charity every quarter.
The magnitude of support and outpouring of generosity we continue to see from Alyce users helped us to reimagine this past quarter’s Alyce Match Program initiative. Instead of selecting just one charity, Alyce committed to matching platform-wide donations made to all Ukrainian relief causes within Q2 2022.
In addition, we also committed to matching all June donations to charities dedicated to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community in recognition of Pride Month. The amazing organizations that received this matching support include The Trevor Project and Pride Foundation.
The entire Alyce team is proud that we’ve been able to deliver a gifting platform that can amplify the ever-evolving passions of our users, providing a chance for businesses to give back to the most timely causes. Supporting charities that help fight against domestic and global crises can help bring a sense of “doing” to those who want to help but aren’t sure where to start.
