At Alliance Data, giving back to our communities is a common thread that connects and inspires us. Over the years, we’ve steadily increased our global community investment and volunteerism. Successful companies like ours must step up and use our expertise to strengthen communities and help create a future where our business and local economies can flourish.
In recognition of Hunger Action Month, we want to acknowledge a few of our associates who are passionate about ending hunger and have taken on leadership roles in their community food banks. Here are their stories:
Non-profits know that producing outcomes is key to securing meaningful partner support and funding. Even when the non-profit gets results, many struggle to provide a clear picture of the positive impact they create.
Limited data expertise, staff resources and inadequate data management tools are primary challenges to valid and clear outcomes reporting. Another more vexing challenge is the fact that most non-profit professionals, along with their boards, partners and funders, are not trained in interpreting program data.
Research by Junior Achievement and Alliance Data Shows that Cash is Still Popular with Teens, but Technology is Becoming a Favored Money Management Tool
August 14, 2019 /3BL Media/ -Teens may love technology, but most still rely on cash when it comes to purchases and getting money from mom and dad. In fact, 80 percent of teens who receive money from parents or caregivers say it is in the form of cash and 75 percent of teens say they have made purchases in cash.
