Some 1.4 billion people are involved in the philanthropy sector every year. And there is true strength in numbers. But doesn’t that crowd strength start with those doing things on a personal level? Remember Archimedes' famous quote: Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world. And that brings me to what KindLink wants to do for the world in 2020 and throughout this decade. 

Employees raised over £141 million in 2017/2018 through payroll giving in the UK. Enable your employees to support their chosen causes in the most tax-efficient way. By working with your accounting team and a payroll giving agent, you can remove the friction and make giving to their favourite charities every month a seamless process for your team.

While CSR has been a concept circulating the corporate and media environments for years, it remains, for many, a dense and painful process. Without a full team in place, building and then executing on a CSR strategy can prove impossible.

However, we believe that, with some guidance, any company can take their first steps towards building a social responsibility strategy, engaging their employees, attract new talent and make a difference in their community.

KindLink is excited to announce that we now support over 1,000 charities and nonprofit organizations with our free software, fundraising and impact reporting platform. We are grateful to be able to help these charitable organizations make the world a kinder place within the United Kingdom and internationally. KindLink was founded with the intention of bringing transparency and efficiency to the charity sector, and we will continue to connect businesses and charities through their kind work.

After BT MyDonate announced it would close down in June 2019, many organisations, particularly small charities, started wondering what alternatives were available. Replacing BT MyDonate can be hard: although it is not the sleekest of platforms many nonprofit organisations relied on them because they charged no fees on online donations, only passing on transaction fees. In this blog, I will look at some of the most used fundraising platforms and will describe and compare their fees and functionalities.

To all charities affected by BT MyDonate announced closure in June, we say: move from one free fundraising platform to another free fundraising platform: KindLink.

KindLink is excited to announce a partnership with One Unite to power their new Give While You Save scheme. The GWYS scheme benefits businesses or homeowners saving money while raising funds for their chosen charity by switching their energy providers.

Most companies nowadays have heard about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes. Started by and usually connected to the bigger companies of this world (as the name would suggest) such initiatives are sometimes seen as not related to the core business and hard to manage. Both could not be further from the truth.

The BBC’s weekly technology programme BBC Click, which airs internationally and is presented by the show’s charismatic host Spencer Kelly, has recently featured KindLink in one of their episodes.

Having a constant income over time is crucial for your charity, as it allows you to plan ahead and cover the costs of running your activities. This means that keeping your existing donors is at least equally important as adding new ones.
