Who we are

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….

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, grant giving organisations and individuals to come together for the good of the industry (hence our name – The Good Exchange).

Reverse Crowdfund

Unlike a typical crowdfunding system that focuses solely on supporting organisations and individuals to raise funds, The Good Exchange has been designed from the bottom-up to address the needs of both funders and fundraisers and drive much-needed equality across the sector.

The Good Exchange is the only charity platform that unites funders, fundraising organisations and the public. Think of a “reverse-crowdfund” where funders initiate grants and where donors and fundraisers collaborate to drive and build a community around a social cause or local need, closing the funding gap with a mixture of grants, donations and fundraising activities – what a difference it would make.

As well as allowing funders, donor and fundraisers to support their preferred causes, The Good Exchange drives resolution of the deep-rooted challenges faced by the charitable sector by using technology to simplify and streamline the way that charitable giving is managed. Only by doing this can the intractable social problems that need long term funding rather than point-in-time solutions be resolved.

The Good Exchange’s matching technology equalises the funding and fundraising marketplace in the same way that technology has re-aligned the insurance industry. Anyone can go on-line today, complete a single application and be presented with a short-list of insurers that match their personal needs and are willing to take on the risk. On the supply-side, insurance providers are instantly provided with lists of those consumers who are looking for cover and who fit their criteria – a perfect solution for everyone.

Match Funding

Match-Funding is another area where The Good Exchange can really benefit Applicant Organisations.  Match funding unites funders and the fundraising public in a collaborative drive around a social cause or local need.

When a funder offers to double the amount of money raised on an Applicant Organisation’s project through match funding, donors and fundraisers are incentivised to drive up the amounts raised and donated and to do this more quickly to enable their chosen charities and good causes to benefit from the doubling of their grants and donations before the fund runs out.

Funders like the ability to offer match funding grants because the approach encourages charitable projects to utilise multiple sources of funding rather than relying on grants alone.
