What is The Good Exchange

The on-line charity matching platform that is transforming charitable giving

Years of budget cuts have made austerity the new reality in the UK and we can all see the pain it’s causing.

To close the funding-gap, money for good causes has to go further and work harder. There’s no time for slow evolution – only a revolutionary approach will drive the much-needed strategic change and proactive transformation of charitable funding. Digital technology that brings multiple grants, donations and fundraising activities together and instantly matches the grant makers and donors that have money to give, with the charities and community groups that need money is where it starts.

The Good Exchange’s social software revolutionises the way this happens – driving change in the charitable sector in the same way that organisations such as Spotify® and GoCompare™ transformed the music and insurance industries, bringing about a better and more inclusive society for everyone.

Its automated matching system with a simple, single on-line application form enables funders, charitable projects, individual donors and fundraisers to work together strategically and collaboratively.  Anyone interested in a particular cause or charitable category can see the complete fundraising picture – who is donating, fundraising and granting funds to each relevant charitable project and can join together through the platform to have a measurable impact on social problems and build cohesive community engagement.

Not-for-Profit

The Good Exchange is a Not-for-Profit organisation, wholly owned by a Registered Charity.  We don’t aim to make profits and we don’t have to give dividends to shareholders – we’re only interested in helping good causes and funding organisations and individuals to come together for the good of the industry (hence our name – The Good Exchange).

Why use The Good Exchange?

The Good Exchange is a transformational cloud platform that has been designed to address one of today’s biggest charitable fundraising challenges – how to best match those organisations and individuals who have money to give to good causes to those who need it most, whether local, regional or national.

The Good Exchange’s social software revolutionises the way this happens – driving change in the charitable sector in the same way that organisations such as Spotify® and GoCompare™ transformed the music and insurance industries, bringing about a better and more inclusive society for everyone.

Its not-for-profit, matching system means that by filling in one simple online application form – grant-makers, charitable causes and the public can all be matched. The platform enables everyone to see the complete fundraising picture – who is granting funds and to which causes, which appeals are receiving donations. Grant-makers and donors can see all the causes seeking funding, not just those who ‘shout the loudest’. They can also offer match-funding grants where their money is matched on a £1 for £1 basis, doubling the amounts raised and incentivising people to fundraise, to give money faster and to give more.

Working collaboratively through the platform, grant-makers and donors can give their money to those that need it most, have a measurable impact on social problems and build community engagement.
