September Charity Jobs – Think Virtual Christmas Events

Overall, digital fundraising is on the rise, with our recent survey revealing that 85% of charities surveyed believe that digital fundraising is set to grow faster than trend. As Christmas approaches, traditionally the strongest period of giving in the Christian calendar, it is more important than ever that charities understand the digital fundraising options available to them. 


Digital fundraising platforms, such as DONATE, ensure that fundraisers can set-up and run campaigns from home with ease. Fundraising initiatives such as online auctions, school text raffles, and text and web giving codes for a carol service can therefore be created, managed and accessed from home. Our text raffle service replicates a physical raffle whilst having the advantage of allowing participation by anyone, anywhere with a mobile phone. All you need to do is source great prizes and then watch people participate via text.

Auctions are straight forward too. Our service has no-upfront fees and gives you access to set up lots, descriptions, images and so much more. Moreover, web-based dynamic screens show real time bids and updates to all bidders with integrated payment options once bidding has closed. Case studies across schools, livery companies and charities identify how successful online auctions are in bringing in much needed funds during Corona times. 

If you’re exploring your festive options, and would like to know more about text raffles and online auctions ahead of Christmas please email us at where a member of our team will be ready to support you.
