We’re thrilled to partner with Bright Funds to offer the same world-class platform to their nonprofit community,” said Subhasis Patnaik, Founder and CEO at Charity Karma. “I strongly believe this partnership will enable nonprofits to unlock their capacity to create a positive impact within their communities.” “Bright Funds serves as a critical link between the businesses and people who care about humanitarian issues and the organizations that address them,” said Bennett, “With the launch of Bright Network, Direct Relief has an even greater opportunity to engage others in its work and show how their participation makes an impact in the health and lives of people in the U.S. and around the world. ”The advent of Bright Network completes the suite of offerings on the Bright Funds platform, catering to the whole corporate social responsibility ecosystem offering services to corporate clients, individual donors, and nonprofits. Over the years, Bright Funds saw a growth rate of 30+% in new nonprofits supported through its monthly disbursement cycles.
