Every organisation (business or charity) relies on its connections with other organisations, customers, partners (usually real human beings), etc. to conduct its activities. The more this organisation operates the more connections it establishes and the more important they become for its operations. Accordingly, these relationships fuel the growth of the organisation. In the business world these are usually client relationships, which at the end of the day pay the salaries.

We are very proud to announce the official start of our partnership with Do-it Trust. For those of you who still don't know it they manage the do-it.org database, the biggest digital platform for volunteering in the UK, with more than 50,000 registered organisations and 250,000 monthly visitors.

When you aim to solve big problems, you need to have the right tools. Even better if they are free, and absolutely amazing.

It's a long-held assumption that you get what you pay for, and that charities should accept to either pay a lot for good online fundraising tools or be stuck with clunky systems that do not really do the job.

As the first social enterprise with a global vision of an equal and connected world, we like to do things differently here at KindLink. On our platform, charities can raise funds online and engage with their donors at no cost, using state of the art tools.

 

The charity sector has taken a bit of a bashing over the past few years, and in some cases, rightly so. The misuse of funds and aggressive fundraising tactics employed by some large, well known charities have had a powerful, negative effect on public perception of the sector, which has trickled down to affect the work of other, smaller charities which,are reliant on the faith and support of the public.
