Community Involvement

Founder Donald Kasdon believes it is important to give back and support community programs. Being a good corporate citizen is part of our company’s culture at T1 Payments. Our commitment to and involvement in the community have always been part of our core values. Through donations and sponsorships, our team supports crisis funds and education programs.


You can see our commitment to the community in the fabric of our business model – we offer payment processing to high-risk businesses. These are businesses that might have been turned away by a lot of other payment processors and banks. They can rely on our help in processing a high volume of payments in over 160 currencies.

Here are just some of the ways T1 Payments gets involved in the community:
