nbkc bank’s Partnership with Spiral Gains Traction, Simplifies Year-End Giving
KANSAS CITY, Mo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Customers of nbkc bank have embraced its partnership with Spiral, the award-winning Impact-as-a-Service™ for financial institutions, with utilization expected to increase further throughout the month of December — historically the busiest giving month of the year.
Launched at the end of the third quarter, the Spiral platform allows nbkc customers to donate to their favorite charities, organizations, and educational institutions directly from their personal online banking account and get an annual donation report for tax purposes.
Melissa Eggleston, chief deposit officer and EVP at nbkc bank, said, “The bank is excited by its customers’ response to Spiral and expects activity to swell as individuals focus on year-end giving.”
“We are pleased to facilitate and simplify charitable giving among our customers via Spiral,” she said. “It deepens our engagement with them in a meaningful way, while also serving a larger community purpose.”
December is designated National Giving Month, making nbkc’s recent partnership with Spiral especially timely. Eggleston noted that as much as 30 percent of annual charitable giving takes place in the last month of the year.
“We know that giving is concentrated at year-end, and we believe more of our customers will avail themselves of the Spiral capability as it approaches,” she said. “We are grateful to support their charitable efforts as part of our overall relationship.”
