Support Black-owned businesses
Presently stands with the Black community in the ongoing fight against racial injustice. At Presently, we will continue to use our platform to promote diversity and inclusion and to support Black entrepreneurs. In celebration of Juneteenth, the commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, any group gift that supports a Black-owned business will have any credit card fees covered by Presently – from June 19, 2020 through December 2020*.
We have seen countless petitions signed and millions of dollars raised, but there is so much more to be done. When organizing a group gift with Presently this year, choose one that will make a direct impact in your area!
