“We really appreciate the work that The Good Exchange is doing, what we like about it is that it’s a true collaboration …. It’s not us shifting our objectives and what we need to do to match a grant makers’ decision-making panel to make sure we’re successful. Thanks to The Good Exchange, we’ve been able to get 2 new funders….. that we didn’t have previously, which means that we’re creating new funding streams for ourselves.

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.
ACF Magazine article – Digital technologies continue to transform the way we live and work, and those managing charitable funding have the opportunity to do the same for application processes and sector collaboration. Creating an equal funding and fundraising gateway for every charity, regardless of size or cause, will help grant-makers,donors and fundraisers to give their money and resources to those that needit most, drive a measurable impact on social problems and build community engagement, simultaneously encouraging more charitable giving from individuals and businesses.
