About our Partner

Centelon’s partner is a ‘not for profit’ foundation & a fundraising arm of the Hospital which is in existence for nearly 150 years providing outstanding care to children & their families across Australia and overseas.

They raise, manage, & distribute funds to enable the hospital to take the best care of patients and their families. This foundation has raised funds to the tune of over $74.6 million for the year 2019-20 & funded more than 200 groundbreaking initiatives for the Hospital.

Despite this, its current payment gateway interface was limited in functionality with a higher transaction cost & lower on security to restrict any fraudulent transactions. The partner was looking to replace its payment solution and continue to accept web donations for straight through processing (STP) and improve security on the web donation form. The organisation also wishes to update its global address verification using a new validation service for operational efficiency & improving doner experience.
