Syracuse ATM has been smoothing the edges of our new program, ATMs for Good. We’re very proud of what we've accomplished with it so far. ATMs for Good mission is simple “To contribute to the world in a positive way.”For us here, that's more important than anything else we could do.
How do we continue to achieve our mission? Well, our part was to create this innovative reimagining of what your local ATM should do.
So the innovation… What if you could support your community, donate to a noble cause, and not change your day to day schedule? The ATMs for Good program allows you to do just that. You see, a portion of that fee, the one you have to pay anyways, goes to a local non-profit to help support the community we’re all a part of. It doesn't charge you more to use an ATMs for Good machine, it doesn't cost the business owner anything more either. Everybody wins just by doing what we normally do everyday.
That's our part of our mission. We need your help though. Don't worry, keep reading please, it's not difficult. Here's how you help. Start using ATMs for Good ATM where you see them. ATMs for Good ATMs are wrapped to look different than all the other ATMs you see out there. The most important part is the message on the side of any ATMs for Good ATM. “This ATM donates to a local non-profit.” Use them when you see them and you'll be
machine somewhere you know it should be, tell the business owner about what we're doing here.Tell them how important our community is, tell them how it doesn't cost them anything to participate, and that this is an easy way for all of us to “contribute to the world in a positive way”. If you don't want to tell them all these things in between getting your gas, or buying a soda, that's alright, we understand – maybe just tell us instead. We can say all those things too. (And leave a very pretty and informative postcard about the program). Like I said it's what we do.
We're really excited about this program. We've invested a lot of ourselves into it. All I can say is, “You ain't seen nothing yet!”
