Better benefits for social workers.

The Difference Card has a long-standing relationship in working with non-profit organizations of all shapes and sizes including domestic needs, medical non-profits, international needs, youth organizations, environmental and animal causes, educational groups, health non-profits and cultural centers.

We help them create the BEST employee benefit plans for their employees, while often saving the organization hundreds of thousands of dollars that they can then put back into the non-profit or the community they serve.

Over the last 10 years, The Difference Card has saved non-profit organizations over $123 MILLION in healthcare expenses.

The average non-profit sees about 19% in savings annually, or around $2,712 per employee per year.

Non-profits can build custom health plans that offer rich benefits WITHOUT increasing employee contributions. This would create an increase in salary and take-home pay for social workers.

Better benefits help to attract top talent.

Providing a rich benefit plan with low copays and reasonable deductibles can be a great recruiting tool for non-profit organizations.

According to, the voluntary turnover rate for non-profit employees in 2022 was 19%, compared to 12% in the private sector. Thirty-two percent of non-profit employees cited benefits and pay as a reason for leaving.

In a report done by Clutch, 55% of all sector employees cited health coverage as the greatest driver of job satisfaction, followed by paid vacation (18%), overtime pay (11%) and retirement plans (10%)

Health benefits and health insurance coverage have proven to be a top benefit for retaining employees and attracting new talent.
