BELLEVUE, Wash. – December 4, 2020 – Our Mayberry, a financial-tech startup connecting businesses, nonprofits, and consumers to transform communities, has launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on the WeFunder platform.
Our Mayberry’s leading-edge financial transaction platform helps nonprofits add a new fundraising channel by partnering with local businesses that agree to contribute a portion of each sale made on the platform. Using the proprietary Payberry app to make purchases, consumers can simultaneously support both nonprofits and small businesses, whether shopping online or in person.
Our Mayberry recognizes that many consumers make belief-driven decisions. According to a 2018 Edelman Earned Brand survey, nearly two-thirds of consumers are driven by their beliefs, adjusting their buying behavior to patronize businesses that align with their principles.
“We know that the consumers of today want their purchases to make a difference and want to support businesses that reflect their values,” says Our Mayberry founder and CEO Shawn Tacey. “We also know that if the current model persists, transferring wealth from mom and pop stores to global conglomerates, while local charities suffer as their donor bases shrink, our communities will collapse.”
Both small businesses and nonprofits have been hit hard by the global pandemic and the ensuing economic struggles. Small businesses in downtown areas have seen decreases in foot traffic, while nonprofits that typically relied on in-person events for fundraising have had to rethink their model. Our Mayberry seeks to provide a sustainable source of funds for nonprofits while simultaneously helping small businesses expand their consumer base by tapping into nonprofits’ engaged and dedicated audiences.
“Our Mayberry’s model represents the next step in the evolution of fundraising,” says Tacey. We focus on weaving into the fabric of everyday life a system that helps rebuild communities by ensuring that a portion of every transaction is contributed to a charitable cause selected by the person making the payment.”
Reflecting the founders’ values as well as those of the organizations and individuals they seek to engage, Our Mayberry has pledged consistent, transparent reporting and prompt payments to nonprofit partners. In addition, the platform safeguards against surveillance, tracking, and selling of customers’ data.
