 TEI PARTNERS WITH BENEVOLINK

The Evangelism Institute (TEI) today announced it has joined the growing number of charitable causes leveraging Benevolink to raise unrestricted funds year-round from consumer shopping.

  “We are constantly looking for smart new ways to raise funds efficiently,” said Stuart Holt, TEI Founder. “Benevolink is an innovative program that makes sense for our constituents, and is easy to administer.”

 

Through their membership with Benevolink, consumers who support TEI will earn a percentage of their spending with participating merchants and then direct “earned” funds to the charity of their choosing, including TEI. The program is free for consumers and nonprofits, and essentially revolutionizes charitable corporate giving, community support and philanthropic endeavors at the local and national levels. 

About Benevolink

Through Benevolink, consumers support the charities, schools, religious and cultural organizations they care about most through their everyday spending with Benevolink retailers – without having to take extra money out of their pockets. Enrolling takes minutes, and the service is free for nonprofits and consumers.  The privately-owned company, founded in 2002, is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information about Benevolink, or to enroll as a consumer or nonprofit member, visit www.benevolink.com or call (800) 556-GIVE.
