Impactful Transactions: Aligning Profit with Purpose with Shizuka Buckley

Ever wondered where your money really goes?

As a purpose-driven business, you do your best to put your money toward your mission and the world you envision. But every business relies on money, and that involves systems, like processing fees.

A virtual CFO can help track every cent of your business’s finances. You might be surprised to find a significant percentage going to something as ordinary as processing fees.

That’s where Shizuka Buckley of Giv Local steps in. Processing fees are okay—they’re crucial in today’s business world. But Shizuka turns those fees into a force for good in her communities.
