Who We Are

We partner with leading technology providers to deliver the UK’s only software donation platform, Charity Digital Exchange. Our services improve digital awareness and access, connect charities to the digital expertise and talent they need, and raise the bar for digital skills and understanding for non-profit organisations of all kinds.

To date, we’ve helped over 400,000 charity professionals learn about digital transformation through our media platform and enabled over 68,000 to save in excess of £260 million on technology investments. Since 2002, our payment processing and fundraising services have provided income of over £300M for our charity customers, and an average of six million emails per month are sent through our bespoke charity email service.
