The Montreal-based startup, Yapla provides non-profits of all types with an all-in-one payment and management platform to facilitate day-to-day operations related to items such as; organizing events, selling tickets online, managing members and receiving donations online.
La Fabrique by CA, the French bank Credit Agricole's startup studio, has announced its investment in Yapla in addition to the signing of a business partnership.
Boosting the support available to the nonprofit sector
The partnership will allow Credit Agricole's 450,000 client nonprofits to use Yapla for free. Non-profits will be able to receive payments online and manage all of their activities, including organizing events, managing members, organizing fundraisers, creating a website and managing newsletter campaigns.
Laurent Darmon, founder and CEO of the La Fabrique by CA startup studio explains: "On a daily basis, managing an association takes time and a wide range of skills. Yapla brings together all of the apps that non-profits need into a single platform to boost their development. The all-in-one tool allows them to focus their energy on fulfilling their organization's mission. With this free service, Credit Agricole is positioning itself as a major partner to the non-profit sector, a market representing an annual budget of 113 billion euros and employing more than 1.7 million people in France."
Yapla stems from Credit Agricole's innovative strategy for the creation of service platforms in the banking sector, announced in its 2022 Medium-Term Plan. By supporting non-profit organizations, Credit Agricole aims to pursue its charitable commitment to maintaining France's social fabric.
