A Charity Donation Line On Every Credit Card Purchase.
"This is a simply Brilliant Innovation. It  empowers us all
to make a Difference"
Gerard Mc Keon, Publisher, Black Tie International Magazine
Charity Group Announces
Proprietary Credit Card Merchant Technology
that facilitates a Point-of-Sale Charitable Donation.

CharityChex™, is a proprietary credit card merchant technology system that facilitates a point-of-sale, payer-designated charitable donation. This system enables a seamless transaction between a payer, merchant and charitable organization.

CharityChex™ facilitates, for the first time ever, partnerships between retail businesses and charitable organizations. The retail establishments can use its CharityChex™ credit card merchant processing system to transfer funds allocated by a patron as a charitable contribution on his or her bill directly to their charity of choice. An immediate tax invoice receipt will be printed as well for the patron.

Upon payment of the retail invoice, CharityChex™ fund transfer system will direct point-of-sale patron-designated charitable donation amounts to the charitable organization of the patron’s choice, thereby negating the need for the establishment to utilize any of its resources to facilitate the transaction, yet garner the customer satisfaction and client loyalty for being recognized as a civically minded business establishment.


CharityChex™ combines charity and retail establishments together for the first time to create a win-win situation for customers and businesses who want to contribute to society in a simple, no hassle way,” said Scott O. Talbot, Chairman, Charity Group, LLC. “We know that now more than ever people want to give back and CharityChex provides a simple, easy way to do just that.”



Charity Group’s core mission is to provide connection for all stakeholders in the non-profit sector.  Emphasizing the strategic and tactical linkages between nonprofits, corporate sponsors and product/service donors, the company is dedicating itself to organizing relevant information, facilitating operating logistics, increasing public visibility/exposure, and enhancing overall operating profitability/efficiency for all stakeholders operating in the non-profit sector.  In short, Charity Group is committed to transforming the $295 billion non-profit industry by refashioning stakeholder connections, strategically empowering donors and creating innovative new showcases for both the nonprofits and their supporters.  In the process, we also intend to build a dynamic, profitable and sustainable business.

In addition, a number of foundations are intrigued by the impact of our products and have shown interest in working in partnership with us as a socially responsible business venture.


One of our current objectives is to invite exceptional community and world leaders to become board members and shareholders of Charity Group. To date, we have created an exceptional board and it continues to grow. Board member's have the ability to bring value to the Company through individual expertise, resources, relationships, credibility and operational, financial and technical knowledge. Board members also may be provided an equity interest in the Company” said Scott O. Talbot, Chairman, Charity Group, LLC.


Another Charity Group objective is to secure additional funding from strategic investors through the assistance of respected business leaders and philanthropists of the highest caliber.  At present, we are in conversation with a number of Forbes Top 100 national and international philanthropists, who are excited by our unique products and vision.  Ultimately the lead investors will make the Charity Group, LLC their own legacy and have the ability to feature their personal causes.
