Third Sector, the UK’s leading publication for everyone who needs to know what’s going on in the voluntary and not-for-profit sector has published The Good Exchange’s article that explains how our on-line technology platform aims to close the funding gap – the costly and ineffective reactive grant application process where charities have to make separate grant applications to separate grant-makers with funders making grant decisions in isolation. With our platform, charitable organisations only fill in one simple application form, which is used to match multiple grant-makers with the charitable causes that meet their funding criteria.

The one-day event explored different aspects of impactful leadership and offered diverse perspectives on key issues that not-for-profits must face.

The main takeaway was the urgent need for a shift in the way we think.
The Good Exchange platform has helped Brighter Futures to increase the profile of a worthy local cause that will provide a huge benefit to the people of Swindon. It has also enabled the Radiotherapy Appeal to reap the benefits from match funding, which is highly motivational, driving fundraisers to the fundraising site because they knew their money would be doubled. Match funding gives applicants the opportunity to reach their fundraising target more quickly by doubling donations (or more) to their projects, which has had a huge impact on the success of Brighter Futures’ Radiotherapy Appeal to date.
