Pay It Forward leverages RPA for faster, error-free data entry at scale
Based in Gainesville, Georgia, Pay It Forward Scholarships is a nonprofit organization that provides roughly $6 million annually to fund students’ educations at private schools throughout the state. The organization receives contributions from individuals, families, and businesses, which then become scholarships for children in grades K through 12, 50% of whom come from low-income households. Pay It Forward also has access to $58 million in dollar-for-dollar tax credits to reserve for Georgia taxpayers who donate money.
The state of Georgia gives Pay It Forward just 24 hours – January 1st of each year – to enter relevant information on each of its thousands of donors into their Department of Revenue’s (DOR) online portal.
It is a tedious, time-consuming manual process that requires considerable resources to accomplish. The non-profit risks losing the tax break for every potential recipient they cannot get entered into the system. Pay It Forward sought a better way with Nintex RPA.
