Wilder is one of 33 Minnesota charities selected to participate in the launch of the Interest for Others online giving platform.
Interest for Others is an idea brought to life by retired Briggs and Morgan attorney Bill Dolan as a way for financial institutions’ customers to donate interest earned in their accounts to charities of their choice. Individuals can also make outright gifts. Dolan’s vision was that small amounts of interest could be aggregated and become much larger sums, all helping nonprofit organizations. The Interest for Others Foundation was created in 2014 and has become a 501c3 tax-exempt public charity.
Interest for Others will pay all credit card and transaction fees for outright gifts made at interestforothers.org/givenow.
