With KOHA, small businesses, schools, & nonprofits mutually benefit one another. We encourage the “Community Heroes” of small businesses to donate a portion of a customer’s purchase to schools and nonprofits communities. Those same communities rally to support those small business partners in return. Local families and individuals earn personal rewards that can be used universally with any KOHA merchant, creating a true community network of giving.
Self-funded development through BETA.
Established partnerships with a Chicago-area school district and two local nonprofit organizations as KOHA's pilot and launch market.
Attracted an experienced team of entrepreneurs, fundraising experts, and technology leaders as executives, board members, and advisors.
Robust, fully-functioning merchant solution currently being piloted.
We launched our pilot with an audience of 13,000 people associated with a local elementary school district and nonprofits in Downers Grove, Illinois. We have a growing user base and bring real value to our merchant partners, so our ambition is to grow beyond the Chicago suburbs into major markets.
