ATLANTA and PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Greater Giving, a division of Global Payments Inc. (NYSE:GPN) and a company that delivers powerful fundraising solutions and credit card payment processing to the nonprofit market nationwide, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Chirpify, the only company that enables nonprofits, businesses and consumers to fundraise, buy, sell and pay in-stream on the major social media outlets of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Under the agreement, Greater Giving's nonprofit clients across the United States now have the ability to utilize Chirpify's simple and proven platform that makes it possible for consumers to donate to a nonprofit by replying with one comment to social media posts. Nonprofits can leverage Chirpify by creating quick fundraising campaigns via social networks, asking their supporters to reply "donate" for donations and "gimme" for giveaways. The links can be easily imbedded into email campaigns and websites, so nonprofits can get their message out in several ways.

"We are excited about our new relationship with Chirpify," said Sid Singh, SVP and GM, Worldwide Integrated Solutions for Global Payments. "It is a great example of how we continue to look for opportunities for our customers to take advantage of the growing market and the power behind social media."

Greater Giving and Chirpify recently kicked off a pilot program for local nonprofits to create innovative fundraising and engagement campaigns via their social media channels. Pilot participants include DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital, Metropolitan Performing Arts Academy, Stiletto Stampede and The Shade Project.

"For our first campaign we launched an in-stream giveaway through Facebook and Twitter, which helped us promote a large upcoming fundraising event while showcasing one of our terrific event sponsors and building a Chirpify support base to help us with future donation campaigns," said Kate Goudschaal, Director of Communications for DoveLewis, a nonprofit emergency animal hospital in Portland, Oregon.

"Greater Giving provides nonprofits with the technology to make all their fundraising efforts more successful and we look forward to extending that success to in-stream instant social donations," said Chirpify CEO Chris Teso.
