NEW FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY FOR SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZED UK CHARITIES AS "DAYS" LAUNCHES MASTERCARD

Small and medium sized registered charities across the UK are welcoming the opportunity for a new income stream thanks to a unique credit card launched by fundraising organisation "Donate As You Spend"(DAYS).

When applying for a card, simply complete your MasterCard application with DAYS using the simple form at http://www.days.org.uk/charity_card/index.html, and they make donations to your chosen charity including a percentage of every £ spent on the card. This way, smaller charities can now capitalise on the benefits of credit card fundraising techniques that have previously only been available to the larger charity players.

DAYS, whose primary aim is to provide the products and mechanisms that allow consumers to give financial support to their chosen charitable causes through every day spending, has joined forces with Sygma Bank UK, a leading provider of innovative credit programmes.

"For several years we have been looking for a retail financial services provider with the vision and flexibility to open up the credit card market to the thousands of charities who, due to their small size, have traditionally been excluded from this lucrative fundraising opportunity, "commented Terry Harvey, Chief Executive of DAYS. "In Laser we have found a partner with a strong presence in the card market, a good understanding of working with affinity partners, and a willingness to tailor our card product to fit our requirements and those of our charity partners."

He added," Any UK registered charity can apply to become a DAYS MasterCard partner and we are receiving a tremendous amount of interest in this product. In addition to the financial benefits, charities can retain complete control over their card programme as they are responsible for generating card applications through their own fundraising contacts rather than handing over their mailing lists to the card provider in the traditional way."
