C4SI partners with other 501(c)(3) public charities dealing with food insecurity, housing insecurity, economic insecurity, etc. and supplements their distributions with funded $ecurity Cards. We use these Distribution Partners to gate access to C4SI $ecurity Cards through their existing trust networks. These organizations know the needs of their clientele best, and can target $ecurity Card distribution to their most effective ends.
In December 2021, we made our first ever distribution to our Distribution Partners. We delivered $10,558 in $ecurity Cards and retail debit cards and our Distribution Partners helped us gather data, receive feedback, test assumptions, and improve our distribution program.
In March 2022, we distributed another $4,500 in $ecurity Cards and retail debit cards to our Distribution Partners and continued to accumulate testimonials.
In November 2022, we distributed another $17,000 in $ecurity Cards and retail debit cards to our Distribution Partners. You can read a sample of the testimonials from those that received Target cards, pictures and testimonials from those that received $ecurity Cards, and review data measuring how the $ecurity Cards are being used.
We are on track to distribute another $30,000 in $ecurity Cards and retail debit cards to our Distribution Partners in Nov/Dec 2023.
