CreateHope was built as an Application which streamlined Corporate Philanthropic giving worldwide by sitting on top of corporate payroll systems. CreateHope eventually turned into, Truist Inc., following investment by Warren Buffett’s management in Washington, DC. Following the devastating events of September 11th, Mr. Buffett chose to “gift” Trusit Inc, to the United Way’s online processing arm called E-way. In the first ever merger of its kind, the premise was to gain control of the influx of money being donated and stop fraudulent non profit organizations that arose.This merger accomplished those missions in spades.
