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. 

Many nonprofit organisations in the UK struggle with migrating to online digital solutions, usually because of two reasons:

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 digital era has brought many challenges to both business and non-profit sector. When it comes to fighting online fraud the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and other institutions (such as the Government) have made it their mission to protect consumers and donors from ill-mined companies, organisations and people.

The twin forces of mobile technology and online transactions have transformed most sectors over the past decade.

The 2017 Global NGO Online Technology Report (techreport.ngo) is a research project that seeks to gain a better understanding of how non-governmental organizations (NGOs) worldwide use online technology to engage their supporters and donors. Sponsored by the Public Interest Registry (pir.org) and researched by Nonprofit Tech for Good (nptechforgood.com), the report summarizes how NGOs worldwide use web and email communications, online and mobile fundraising tools, and social and mobile media.

Non-profit sector, how do we tackle the technology challenges?

Almost every non-profit organisation, especially a small one, faces challenges in its daily operations and quite too often these challenges determine if the organisation will still exist in the next quarter. From fundraising through volunteer management to donor engagement and reporting, the reality of the charity sector is tough.
