DONORSTRUST LAUNCHES GIVING VENTURES PODCAST

Donors Trust

This week the team at DonorsTrust, a donor-advised fund committed to encouraging philanthropic giving and protecting donor intent, launched a new podcast focusing on philanthropy. The Giving Ventures podcast explores innovative projects and problem-solving initiatives made possible by support from DonorsTrust account holders. “We are excited to provide a forum where donors with a pro-liberty mindset can learn more about great work on exciting projects that may otherwise get missed,” explained Peter Lipsett, Vice President at DonorsTrust and Giving Ventures host. “My colleagues and I regularly engage with groups aiming to limit government, grow personal responsibility, and strengthen free enterprise. The podcast allows us to share insights and ideas from these conversations, ideally leading to even more philanthropic activity.” Giving Ventures is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, and directly from the DonorsTrust website. “The Giving Ventures podcast will feature a variety of people, initiatives, and nonprofits dedicated to making the world a better, freer place thanks to the ongoing generosity of the DonorsTrust donor community,” Lipsett continued. “We look forward to using this new avenue to connect givers with the causes and projects they care about most.” In the first episode, “ New Approaches to Reducing Poverty,” Peter Lipsett talks with three leaders tackling innovative free-market solutions to this age-old problem. Guests for the inaugural episode include: Randy Hicks, president, and chief executive officer of the Georgia Center for Opportunity, discusses the ways the organization is combating poverty in the Peach State. Matt Warner, president of Atlas Network and director of its Human Dignity and Freedom Project, shares what his organization is doing to curb poverty at home and abroad. Graham Walker, executive director of the Oakland, California-based Independent Institute, shares how his organization is tackling homelessness and poverty in the Golden State. “Our first episode of Giving Ventures will get your mind racing about all the possibilities for new philanthropic partnerships and open your eyes to the ways our donors and grantees are changing the world for the better,” Lipsett said. “Future episodes will surely do the same.” About Giving Ventures: As the landscape of nonprofits continues to grow, trying to stay current on all the good work going on can be overwhelming – especially if you target your support to efforts that help reduce government’s size and people’s dependence on it. Twice a month, the Giving Ventures podcast will highlight several non-profit efforts, initiatives, and projects that leverage private philanthropy to solve public problems. Giving Ventures is produced by Peter Lipsett and Carolyn Bolton with music from Zapsplat.com About DonorsTrust: Established in 1999 as a 501(c)(3) public charity, DonorsTrust is a community of donors devoted to creating a better future. Our donors support charities they believe protect our Nation’s constitutional liberties and strengthen civil society through private institutions rather than with government programs. Our boutique size lets us offer our donors personal attention and advice that helps them achieve their philanthropic goals. We ensure that our donors’ intentions are protected and offer them a simple, effective, and tax-advantaged way to give. Since its inception, DonorsTrust has granted out over $1.5 billion to over 4,000 charities that protect our constitutional liberties and strengthen civil society without government funding. ### Please visit http://www.donorstrust.org For more information DonorsTrust and Giving Ventures Podcast, or to schedule an interview please contact Dan Rene of kglobal at 202-329-8357 or daniel.rene@kglobal.com Contact Details kglobal Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 daniel.rene@kglobal.com Company Website https://www.donorstrust.org/

Investis Digital Publishes Critical Cyber Security Guide for C-Suite Leaders to Consider When Planning their Ransomware Attack Prevention Strategies

Investis Digital

Investis Digital, a leading global digital communications company, announced the release of CyberSecurity and the C-Suite, a new guide that helps senior leaders learn how to take ownership of corporate cybersecurity threats such as ransomware. The report includes actionable advice on how C-level leaders can prepare their companies to fight ransomware attacks, ranging from training employees to choose the right information technology resources required. The guide includes a series of questions to help businesses evaluate their next steps in fighting cybersecurity threats, including requirements for their hosting and application providers to gauge their preparedness in protecting online corporate assets. The guide also discusses the repercussions suffered by businesses that have been victimized by ransomware attacks. “Businesses everywhere are under siege. Malicious parties are unleashing havoc seemingly every day by hacking corporate websites—sometimes for ransom and sometimes for no other reason than to damage a company’s reputations”, said David Corchado, Chief Digital Officer. “Making Cyber security a priority is paramount to not only ensure business continuity but also protecting your entire business before it is too late.” The report also includes a special section devoted to educating chief executive officers on what to look for in a successful chief information security officer (CISO). The recent spike in ransomware attacks has cast a spotlight on his crucial C-suite leader, who is being challenged to take on a more critical role in instilling a culture of cybersecurity awareness and vigilance in the organization. But chief executive officers need to understand how the role of the CISO has changed in order to empower the CISO to step up to the role of “chief guardian.” This guide could not be timelier as the World Economic Forum's Global Risks Report 2021 states that cyber risks continue to rank as a top global risk. Leveraging this guide will be crucial to elevating cybersecurity as a strategic business issue which only 16% of executives say their organizations are well prepared to deal with. The report is based on Investis Digital's own experience managing the global cybersecurity needs of clients through Investis Digital's Connect.ID technology and 24/7 service. Read the full report: Cybersecurity and the C-Suite. Investis Digital has been at the forefront of digital communications for two decades. Over time we have gained deep sector knowledge, invested in leading technologies, and built lasting and trusted relationships with more than1600 global companies, including Ascential, Anglo American, Rolls-Royce, Fruit of the Loom and Vodafone.

OKY and SUZUKI Guatemala form Strategic Alliance

OKY

OKY, a cross-border e-commerce fintech platform, and Suzuki Guatemala have announced the formation of a strategic alliance for the Guatemalan marketplace. Suzuki Guatemala, one of the country’s leading companies, will now be selling their products through OKY’s innovative platform. The addition of Suzuki to the OKY network of over 100 leading brands enables immigrants in the United States to purchase Suzuki motorcycles in Guatemala through a variety of payment options, including cash, credit card, or direct transfer from a banking account. In addition, this partnership allows OKY users in the U.S. to give their loved ones increased mobility which opens new opportunities for economic advancement. The alliance came into effect on July 16, 2021. To use the service, the user must download the application and create an account. Then, they can make a purchase directly through the application or go to one of the 1,380 points of sale in more than 250 cities in the United States and add funds with cash. Once the recipient in Guatemala has received their digital voucher, they can present it to a salesperson at their nearest Suzuki branch and choose from more than 30 motorcycle models Suzuki Guatemala offers. The entire process is safe and immediate. “As immigrants, we understand what the needs of the region are, the challenges they face, and the type of support that is required from family or friends who are currently in the United States,” said Víctor Unda CEO of OKY. “Through this alliance, Guatemalans abroad will be able to offer their loved one’s access to one of the most popular and important motorcycle brands in Guatemala. This collaboration between OKY and Suzuki is unique. We will be able to observe the positive impact of the application of technology as a tool to promote inclusion and provide a better quality of life for all,” he added. Beyond providing them access to an effective, safe, and less expensive method of transportation, the alliance between OKY and Suzuki Guatemala allows immigrants in the United States to offer an indispensable work tool to their parents, children, or friends. In turn, this will enable them to continue the path toward financial independence. OKY is the only fintech platform designed to give immigrant communities the ability to digitize cash and engage in cross-border e-commerce activities. Through OKY, users can send funds directly to family members in their home country to make purchases at participating retailers such as Suzuki. By removing these barriers, a motorcycle company like Suzuki can now sell products to Guatemalans in the United States who do not have access to traditional financial tools, making it a unique alliance for immigrants and their families in the region. This alliance not only adds a leading global brand to OKY’s network but also aligns itself with the mission of providing immigrants in the United States with a greater number of resources that contribute to closing the geographic divide with more appropriate and equitable financial solutions. Through OKY, users can continue to participate and contribute in a meaningful way to the lives of those they had to leave. “Suzuki is one of the most popular motorcycle brands in Guatemala, and we are committed to the progress and economic development of the communities we serve. We are proud to be a part of the OKY network,” said Ing. Balmory Leck, Suzuki Sales Manager in Guatemala. “The work and dedication of the immigrant community in the United States is admirable and we are confident that, together with OKY, we can continue to support and have a positive impact on the economic development and growth of their home countries,” he added. ABOUT OKY OKY was launched in the summer of 2020 for immigrants and by immigrants, with the vision of helping underserved communities achieve financial equity and overcome common financial barriers through the use of technology. OKY achieves this by enabling users to make e-commerce transactions without the support of financial institutions, which often impede the immigrant community from attaining financial stability. Today, OKY users across the United States and other countries have access to a marketplace that connects the Central American region including retail service providers in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and some offerings for México. For more information, please visit the company’s website, https://okyapp.com/en/ ABOUT SUZUKI SUZUKI, with more than 50 years in the Guatemalan market, currently being the leader of Motorcycles in Guatemala. It has the largest stock of Parts and Accessories in Central America. Its mission is to be a comprehensive and productive organization for Guatemalans, sell motorcycles and high-quality products with the best support, generating business opportunities through a network of employees, trade agents, and satisfied customers.
