Payscout and Jefferson Awards Foundation Partner to Power Public Service

Payscout Joins the Jefferson Award Foundation's Champions Program for Service-Minded Organizations

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 01, 2016) - Payscout, a leading global payment processing provider, will partner with the Jefferson Awards Foundation, the nation's most prestigious and longest-standing organization dedicated to powering and celebrating public service, as part of their Champions program.

Champions are companies who partner with the Jefferson Awards Foundation to engage in meaningful community service and celebrate employees and others in their communities with Jefferson Awards.

Payscout's Vision, Mission, and Cultural Attributes are inspired by the belief that "every individual has a social responsibility to make the world a better place." One of the ways they bring that belief to life is through the Payscout Gives program.

Payscout Gives refers to a series of community outreach initiatives that focus on supporting education and social entrepreneurship. By partnering with the Jefferson Awards Foundation, Payscout is poised to expand the scope and reach of these initiatives -- and build a culture of service among our nation's youth.

"We are proud to be Jefferson Awards Foundation Champions," said Payscout COO Juan Sotelo. "We share in the Foundation's belief that engaging in social good can drive lasting solutions for our communities. This is an honor for the Payscout family."

The Jefferson Awards Foundation works with over 200 Champion organizations -- organizations that share the foundation's vision and values -- employing 6.4 million people to amplify successes and share stories to drive greater impact. Hillary Schafer, Executive Director of the Jefferson Awards Foundation, said, "We are thrilled to welcome Payscout into our Champions program. They will serve as a dynamic partner who is committed to bettering lives and celebrating public service, and together, we will generate remarkable impact across the nation."
