A well-functioning website is ‘key’

Alex Day, General Manager at The Big Give, commented that organisation has spent much of this year working on the new website.

“We have engaged with charities, donors and philanthropists to collect their feedback and hope our users find the new site easy to use and navigate,” he said.

We realise that having an attractive and well-functioning website is key for all of our users; making donating to charities that people care about as easy and fun as possible.

“We won’t be stopping here. We will be launching some exciting new features to the site in the coming months and year ahead. We’d love to hear what people think and encourage any feedback to be sent to or on twitter, @BigGive.”
