Building Our Community
From the beginning, our goal has been to create a community of like-minded business owners who share a common passion for nonprofit organizations. We want to see them grow. Using credit card processing as an avenue came about through Wyatt’s experience owning a share of a payment processing company in the early 2000s. This, combined with his experience as Director of Development for an international nonprofit, led him to pioneer Telos Processing.
Our business is here in Norman. While we’re excited to expand our business as far as it will allow, we’d love to create a group of business owners in the metro using Telos Processing and TelosPay who have a passion for nonprofits.
We already know businesses in Norman who are doing some great work each year to promote and raise funds/awareness. (405) Brewing hosted a pet adoption event for the nonprofit, Country Roads Pet Adoption this past March. Last year, they hosted “Bags for Bethesda” – an awesome cornhole tournament to raise money for Bethesda, a nonprofit devoted to helping children in Oklahoma who’ve suffered from sexual abuse.
CrossFit Exile in Moore hosts a CrossFit competition event each year for The String Foundation, a non-profit that helps families financially who are impacted by autism. Last year, the event raised over $20,000.
These are the kinds of businesses we hope to partner with. Because we believe this is about people more than it’s about payment processing. Payment processing is just our avenue to support nonprofits and to allow merchants to choose a nonprofit specifically important to them.
