The availability of Tiptap's technology to Visa's extensive network of client financial institutions can enable customers to make small value donations to community-based charities while performing regular banking activities.

By making charitable giving a seamless part of everyday banking, we can help drive significant positive impact in the communities we serve."

Tiptap's sophisticated technology and user-friendly interface will enable customers to seamlessly complete their donations within the bank branch environment. The program will also provide Visa FIs with valuable insights into customer preferences and charitable interests, allowing them to support multiple charities to better serve their local communities.

"We are thrilled to work with Visa to make our social impact platform available to their extensive network of Visa FIs," said Barry Hildred, CEO of Tiptap. "Together, we can harness the power of technology and financial services to transform charitable giving and empower individuals to make a difference in their communities.
