For the first time in nearly four years, we’re expanding our Partners for Change program. Beginning on April 30th, we will launch a rotating partnership which will allow us to have relationships with more NGOs throughout the year. To accomplish this, four of our Partners for Change will remain constant, while our fifth Partner will rotate about twice a year.
Shifting this program means we must part ways with Kiva, one of our dedicated Partners working toward positive change. Kiva was one of our original Partners for Change when we launched our giving program back in 2006. Since Kiva’s founding in 2005, 754,040 lenders from 219 countries have loaned over $305 million to people in 59 different countries. Impressive.
We’d like to acknowledge them for their many accomplishments and thank them for inspiring us over the last six years. Want to be inspired too? Check out a few of these facts and stats about Kiva, and learn more about the Kiva Fellows or Kiva’s Green Loans.
April 30th will mark the last day customers can direct 2% of their purchase to Kiva. While this day marks the official end of our partnership with Kiva, their passion for creating positive change will remain a permanent inspiration for all of us here at Nau.
