Project Forward is a social enterprise that rewards volunteers with credits that can either be redeemed for things like food and clothing,
OR paid forward to sponsor donations to nonprofits.
We partner with sponsor businesses, foundations and private donors to underwrite the credits that are tracked on blockchain.
Once you've Volunteered with a partnered Nonprofit, we give you a credit on your Project Forward account that you can redeem just like cash with any of our Partnered Merchants.
If you don't want to use the credits for yourself, you can PAY IT FORWARD and send your credits to another Nonprofit to help fund their growth.
This way you double your social impact!
After Verifying your 501(c)3 status, your volunteers make an account with us and you just confirm their volunteer times for us.
As a Partnered Nonprofit in our network, you can receive Credits from Volunteers that want to PAY IT FORWARD to you.
By rewarding your Volunteers, you drastically increase your active volunteer base and get the hands-on support you need!
We accept donations as a Nonprofit, giving you Tax benefits and knowledge that your sponsorship is going to good use.
Your donation and the credits created will be trackable on blockchain, to see exactly how many people, what demographics, and what projects you've sponsored. You'll also get insight into how many people decided to PAY IT FORWARD, or redeemed with merchants, and analytics on spending.
As a member of our Partner network, you will show your support for community engagement, improving your brand and supporting.
We integrate with your POS terminal to allow Volunteers (your loyal customers) to redeem their credits just like normal dollars for your goods and services.
We then repay all credits to you with the underwritten dollars.
Because our entire credit system is cash backed and supported by blockchain, you will have full transparency (and confidence) in our financial backing.
As a member of our Partner network, you will show your support for community engagement, improving customer loyalty and increasing cashflow.
