Institute of Fundraising and Charity Checkout forge partnership
Sector body and platform provider come together to establish best practice programme.
The Institute of Fundraising (IoF) has named online fundraising platform provider Charity Checkout as its latest Partner for Innovation. The two organisations will focus on championing innovation within the charitable sector and providing fundraisers with practical insight and analysis on a range of fundraising and charitable practices.
Charity Checkout will support the IoF with several insight reports, a regular data-driven blog and the sponsorship of a number of IoF conferences across 2018.
The insight reports will explore topics ranging from mass-participation events to developments in online fundraising. The aim is to challenge existing best practices and to examine new and innovative practices, said Chester Mojay-Sinclare, Founder and CEO at Charity Checkout.
Founded by Mojay-Sinclare in 2012, Charity Checkout was set-up to help small charities raise funds via digital channels. The social enterprise now serves over 2,500 charity clients worldwide – customers include Football Beyond Borders, Hope for Kids International, Harrison’s Fund and Harp.
In addition to its work with charities, the Charity Checkout now helps enterprises around the world with their employee-led fundraising activities and programmes.
“We are passionate about how technological innovation can drive an increase in giving and help to connect donors to causes they care about,” said Chester Mojay-Sinclare. “Charity Checkout now offers everything from mobile-optimised websites to a fully white-label fundraising platform. It has helped raise more than £18,000,000 for charity.”
Mojay-Sinclare adds: “Our technology is used by more than 2,500 charities worldwide. By partnering with the IoF we will work tirelessly to promote innovation, best practice and new developments to benefit the sector and the entire fundraising community.”
“We are delighted to be working with Charity Checkout as a partner to champion innovation across the sector,” said Adam Bryan, Head of Partnerships at the Institute of Fundraising. “It will provide valuable support and insight to the Institute. It’s innovation in practice.”
