The charitable giving sector is more competitive than ever, and the biggest challenge is to stand out from the crowd. We can help you streamline payments for your donors and take the hassle out of giving to a good cause.
Whether you’re setting up regular, annual or one-off donations by phone, face-to-face or through online forms, we can bring faster collections and improved cash flow. We can offer favourable rates to registered charities and provide hands-on training for your teams so you can get the most out of our online platform and easy donor sign-up process.
How We Work With You
We understand most charity work operates on a voluntary basis, and your organisation relies on the goodwill of people giving up their time to help.
We want to make it easy for your staff to register new donors and will equip them with training and scripts to make the signing-up process as simple as possible. We’ll also give you complete training in our system and, as with all our customers, our full support team will be available 9-5.
Donors may sometimes want to stop their regular payments for any number of reasons. Instead of completely dropping them, our system lets you stop their payments but still keep the authority to collect, making it much easier for you and them when they can donate again.
We know that the business of collections is not one size fits all. Most of your donations might be regular and recurring, but you might take larger donations annually, add membership charges or merchandise sales, or there might be surges of one-off payments around particular campaigns. You could have combined office and street teams of 10 or 10,000. Whatever your situation, we’re here to help.
We acknowledge our corporate and social responsibilities. We offer free training and have tailored our charges to charitable causes accordingly.
Signing up a donor to your charity should be as easy as possible. We’ll walk you through every step of our simple, straightforward process.
The last thing you want is to lose a regular donor. If people need to stop payments, our system makes it easy for them to return later.
No two organisations are alike, and we will make sure our software and facilities fit perfectly with your systems and suit your needs.
With more and more charities competing for our donations, it's important for charities to make it as easy as possible for businesses to donate. Direct Debit and card payment systems can make charitable giving a stress-free exercise for supporters and staff.
