Support through online purchases/sales
Lone Survivor Foundation is part of the eBay Giving Works program. So, you can support our mission when you buy and sell on eBay. Here’s how: You can find whatever you’re looking for on eBay – from baseball cards to new cars and more. When you do, shop for items that benefit us. You can get a great deal and support our wounded service members at the same time!
Click here to see items that sellers have listed to benefit LSF!
You can also support Lone Survivor Foundation when you sell on eBay. Just designate our organization to receive 10-100% of your final sale price the next time you list something great. Did you know that charity listings often get more bids and higher prices than regular eBay listings? Boost your sales and support our critical work while you’re at it! Plus eBay gives back to you too, with a fee credit on your basic selling fees.
Lone Survivor Foundation has partnered with Empower Processing to offer supporters a way to support our wounded service members through their everyday business activities! When a customer makes a credit card purchase at a participating merchant, a generous percentage of Empower’s net collected revenue (defined as total fees collected from the merchant minus any card association fees and assessments) is donated directly to the selected veteran support organization (VSO).
>> Matched or lower discount rates for your credit/debit card processing.
>> A no cost analysis of your current processing costs.
>> No hidden fees.
>> Window decal recognizing your support.
>> Checkout recognition placard provided to all members.
>> Full-service customer and technical support included at no-cost.
>> There are no costs associated with participation.
>> The satisfaction of knowing that you’re helping injured and veteran service members.
How it works:
>> A customer makes a purchase with a credit or debit card at a participating merchant.
>> The merchant processes the transaction through Empower Processing.
>> Empower collects the processing fees for the transaction from the merchant.
>> A portion of these fees are then donated directly to a veteran charitable organization.
>> The named organization receives ongoing and recurring financial support.
>> If you currently have a merchant account with another processor, we can easily change over your processing to Empower and you can immediately begin supporting the programs of the named veteran organization.
>> If you’ve never accepted credit cards at your business, one of our sales representatives can provide you with all of the information you need to open a merchant account, including pricing, terminal options, how the process works, and how you receive your funds.
