New version updated 2019 – The charitable sector is playing catch-up in its use of technology to improve fundraising and with a decline in direct Government contributions, charities are turning to technological solutions to enhance their ability to garner much needed funding from donations, grant giving, fundraising and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) budgets.
Larger charities face the same challenges as smaller charities but are usually in a better position to deal with them because they often have professional fundraisers, greater resources and existing relationships with funders, government, philanthropists and businesses. The small and medium sized charities, whose causes are no less important than those of their larger counterparts, are often unable to pay professional fundraisers and typically rely on volunteers and/or part-time staﬀ.
