The Directory of Social Change recently revealed that company giving has fallen 27% in the UK, compared to last year.
Social giving experts at Givey plan to target this problem with the new Givey for Business platform which has already drawn the attention of many employers across the country.
A powerful matching engine allows employers to match any money raised by their workforce. It also creates social content which can be shared in the company’s activity stream, and across the web via social networking sites.
Dave Erasmus, founder of Givey, said: “There are loads of ways for companies to support good causes, but there’s also a critical need for innovation. We need to make giving a social, relational activity for companies, rather than just a transactional act. Giving should be something companies should do in collaboration with their employees and customers – something that helps show the world they’re one of the good guys. If this is good for business, that’s great – more of them will do it!”
