Latest news from our charity community
Work for Good's 2020 Small Business Charity ChampionsAs demand on the UK charity sector has risen dramatically and traditional fundraising has fallen; we want to highlight a group of progressive charities, who’ve faced the complexities of 2020 head-on by seeking innovative solutions, to enable them to digitize their fundraising to generate vital and sustainable income.
Helping WWF-UK nurture their growing Small Business communityWith a growing community of small business supporters, we spoke to WWF-UK to find out more about how they’ve been able to support businesses in a way that works for everyone involved.
Small business fundraising is making a huge difference to these charities!
Friends of the Earth
“Work for Good is the first business specific fundraising platform we’ve ever used. It takes care of time constraints that have previously meant we had to turn away businesses who wished to support us.”
"We’ve been contacted by lots of small businesses, which is fantastic and very much needed. As a small team it has been really valuable to be able to refer people to Work for Good – and we’ve had great feedback from companies about it!"
"A lot of our small business supporters are sole traders who use social media to sell their products and promote them. Work for Good has enabled us to track our donations, learn more about our supporters and have a better relationship with them."
"We decided to use the platform more proactively to manage our donor pipeline which has been increasing rapidly. We feel reassured that we can keep track of donations from businesses and ensure we retain all potential supporters."
“Small businesses wish to give to causes that resonate with them but we have limitations that mean we’ve had to turn support away. Linking with Work for Good changes that. Now, smaller businesses can easily join our fight for #YoungLivesVsCancer."
Leeds Hospitals Charity
"Using the Work for Good platform to launch our #ThankfulThursdays campaign offers all businesses a way to continue their support for the amazing Leeds Teaching Hospitals, by collectively raising £100,000 by Christmas!"
"Over the last few months, more people have wanted to support children’s wishes by turning their skills, hobbies and interests into new businesses. Work for Good offers a simple and convenient way for businesses to give back."
Cavell Nurses' Trust
“The team at Work for Good are incredibly friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Their support has been instrumental in allowing us to capitalise on opportunities we might otherwise have missed out on.”
