CINCINNATI, June 3, 2016 – Vantiv, Inc., a leading provider of payment processing services and related technology solutions for merchants and financial institutions of all sizes, announced today that the company is giving back to the Denver community with a $10,000 donation to Brent’s Place, a housing facility dedicated to providing safe and clean housing for severely immunocompromised patients.

Vantiv’s charitable donation will help improve the quality of life for more than 100 children and families coping with cancer and other health conditions. By providing support programs and a safe home away from home, Brent’s Place enables patients and families to concentrate on their loved ones’ recovery without worrying about the financial burden.

“Brent’s Place plays a crucial role in the Denver area by protecting the health of their patients while also enriching day-to-day life of their families,” said Bob Berding, sales executive at Vantiv Integrated Payments. “We are proud to support the efforts of Brent’s Place and are committed to giving back to our community.”

The Brent Eley Foundation was established in 1997 by Linda and Donn Eley as a tribute to their son, Brent, who passed away after a year-long fight with cancer. Brent’s only chance for survival was a bone marrow transplant but the family faced the added hardships of long hospital stays far from home. Their experience led them to create the foundation and open Brent’s Place in Denver. It fills the need for living accommodations suitable for immune-compromised pediatric patients and their families following bone marrow transplants.

“We are extremely grateful for Vantiv’s charitable donation to Brent’s Place,” said Rachel Bernstein, Community Engagement Manager at Brent’s Place. “Through their generous commitment, we are able to expand our support programs and relieve the financial and emotional need of each resident family.”
