Coopeservidores launches the VAKI platform for non-governmental organizations (NGOs), in order for them to publicize their initiatives and receive donations. It is a strategic alliance, with a Colombian fintech specialized in crowdfunding called Vaki, which allows individuals or legal entities to make money donations to social enterprises or non-profit organizations.
Organizations are registering on the microsite cs.vaki.co and people who wish to make their donation can enter and choose which of the initiatives they would like to contribute, all through a secure payment gateway and 100% online that does not require of paperwork or procedures.
Organizations interested in registering for the first time on this platform to publicize their campaigns must be constituted, be non-profit organizations and have a bank account in Cooper servers (CS) or in a financial institution in the country that ensures receipt of the donations.
An ally in technology
“From Coopeservidores we are pleased to present our platform in Vaki, which is the result of the alliance that CS makes with a Fintech, and through which we continue to reaffirm our commitment to society and continuous improvement. With this platform, we seek that non-profit organizations in the country have an ally that will allow them, through technology, to obtain financial support from the community to solve their needs and meet their objectives ”, commented Vivian Arias, Director of Innovation and Strategy of CS.
How to donate
If you are interested in supporting any of the organizations registered on the platform, you just have to enter VAKI and select the one you want to benefit. Once there, you can donate the amount you want and do it from the comfort of your home, through the payment gateway that allows you to make contributions with a credit or debit card safely.
Also, you can select one of the organization’s initiatives and donate only for that purpose. For example, if an organization makes efforts to provide a better quality of life for homeless people, you can support this specific cause on a recurring basis.
