About Harness

We’re a diverse group of individuals passionate about harnessing the power of payments to drive real change in the world around us.

From the outset, we’ve been unswervingly dedicated to creating meaningful change in the world. Since then, we’ve seen first-hand how the power of payments can make a positive impact – from unlocking life-saving fundraising for nonprofit organizations to fostering closer customer relationships for card issuers.

In 2017, the nonprofit sector lagged far behind for-profit organizations in innovation. They simply didn’t have the budgets or time to put into technologies that may not have paid off in the long run. That’s where we came in. As passionate advocates of the purpose economy, we believe in taking care of those who take care of others. And by developing award-winning solutions that reorient nonprofit organizations from one-time revenue generation models to long-term recurring giving models, we’ve helped over 1,000 nonprofits build healthier, more sustainable revenue streams.
