City of Industry, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2017
Continuing a long tradition of supporting the children of their community, last month US Bankcard Services, Inc. (USBSI), a leading merchant services provider, made a contribution to “Give Something Back” (Give Back). The funds donated to Give Back are used to identify, mentor and provide scholarships for youth in need so that they can receive a life-changing education and alter the course of their destiny. USBSI’s donation is part of a $1 million fund Give Back has committed to an inaugural program this year at Chapman University in Orange County.
Founded by Robert O. Carr in 2003, Give Back has one of the best success rates among scholarship charities in the country, with over 91% of its benefit recipients graduating from college. Recipients most likely would never have been able to go to college without the help of the program. To date, Give Back has provided scholarships for over 1,500 students across the U.S. Carr is the former CEO of Heartland Payment Systems, which he sold in 2015, and the current CEO of Beyond, a new venture whose goals include providing long-term funding for Give Back.
In a statement on his official site, Carr said: “I want to take this opportunity to thank Chris Chang, CEO/president of U.S. Bankcard Services, Inc. (USBSI) and Martin Lanyan, vice president of USBSI for their generosity and kind words. Chris and Martin are special people, and because of them, students from California who live in foster care, are homeless or whose parents are incarcerated will have a promising future. This gift is transformational.”
Chris Chang, CEO/president of USBSI said about the contribution: “Bob’s passion helped put into perspective how contributions do not just benefit one person — but impact the surrounding family, fellow students, and communities. USBSI is proud to help build better futures for children and the communities they come from.”
USBSI will continue to seek opportunities to support children in our community, across the country and around the world.
