SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Public Broadcasting is missing out on dozens of monthly donations as part of the fallout from last year’s massive Target credit card data breach.
The nonprofit is among several nationwide that rely in part on small, recurring monthly credit card payments from supporters. The Argus Leader reports (http://argusne.ws/1n90Xje ) many of those transactions have been disrupted since November, when the theft of Target’s data prompted millions of Americans to cancel or change their credit cards.
South Dakota Public Broadcasting vice president Ryan Howlett says officials worked hard last year to grow that segment of the donor base, and weren’t prepared for what happened after the Target data breach.
Howlett says contacting supporters to update their credit card information has been an administrative hassle for the nonprofit’s small membership staff.
