Frequently Asked Questions

Our goal at HeartPress is to bridge the gap between businesses and non-profit organizations.
Our online marketplace #BrokersOfGood allows businesses to quickly and easily support non-profit organizations in their communities.

Simply put, we act as matchmakers between businesses and non-profit organizations. We help businesses choose the right charity partner to create a give-back campaign at no cost to the non-profit organization.

We believe that businesses and individuals would be more philanthropic if they were given the information and resources to make the right giving decisions. #BrokersOfGood allows you to do just that!

We’ve created an online tool to showcase non-profit organizations to businesses who want to give back. #BrokersOfGood highlights various opportunities for businesses to get involved with non-profit organizations. Unique cash donations, sponsorship requests, volunteer positions, in-kind donations and pro-bono services are all available through #BrokersOfGood. Businesses are able to view opportunities that match their search criteria, and get involved with non-profits that have aligning values and goals.
With experience working in the non-profit sector, we understood that finding corporate donors and sponsors wasn’t an easy job. And while working in marketing for small businesses, we realized that businesses also had a hard time connecting with non-profits. HeartPress bridges the gap between the two sectors. We began testing our online marketplace #BrokersOfGood with businesses in Vancouver and Victoria, BC in October 2011.

HeartPress profits from #BrokersOfGood from the participation of businesses. Businesses can sign up for our first tier basic account, which is free of charge, or they can include paid add-on features to support their corporate giving. There are also transactional fees applied to donations made through #BrokersOfGood, no matter what tier the business has signed up for.

*We’re waiving all business fees to support the needs of charities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
