Our Managing Director, Alex Day, was delighted to speak to The Charity CEO Podcast just before the Christmas break. They covered so many interesting themes, including the history of the Big Give, match funding, leadership, the state of the charity sector, tech for good, philanthropy, The Beacon Collaborative, fundraising, levelling up and even The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel!
One of the stand-out themes was that technology has so much power, and it’s used for practically everything nowadays, from online shopping to keeping up to date with friends and finding out the latest news. So what if we used technology as an enabler for social good?
We believe it could enable the charity sector to drive more efficiency, have better processes, grow engagement with supporters and deliver a bigger impact.
And we’ve already seen that impact through our digital match funding campaigns. Our Christmas Challenge took place from the 29th of November to the 6th of December 2022 and raised £28.6m for over 1,000 charities across the UK in that one week.
Take a listen to learn about our upcoming match funding campaigns that are launching this year and how your charity could benefit.
Through a focus on building resilience, skills and profile for charities, and amplifying the campaign’s messaging, they have enabled 92% of participating organisations to reach new supporters bringing in a third of the overall donations.
