Businesses & Non-Profits Benefit from GratisGives
Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“People think it’s too good to be true, but we’ve identified a no brainer way for local businesses and charities to both thrive simultaneously.” * Kirk Allaire
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
Kirk Allaire and partner Andy Lafreniere have created a unique way to help businesses do their business while also creating a consistent stream of cash donations to go to local non-profits. 

In October of 2017, Kirk Allaire had a crazy-big idea. 

The roots of this idea: As the successful owner of a company called Gratis Payment Processing, he wanted to give back to a non-profit that held great meaning to him personally. In the early days of his company, he contacted this specific charity to try to initiate the process. But he found the simple idea of trying to donate to a national organization to be overwhelming for the company’s bandwidth at the time.
