Reason Digital

We work in partnership with organisations – using digital media to magnify their impact

£9.3 billion was donated to charity in 2012, but the total amount, average donation and proportion of Gift Aid have all  dropped in the past year. Bucking this trend, the average online donation has risen to £64 in 2013.

Charities not taking online or mobile donations could be missing out on significant income. Are you making the most of your digital fundraising?

We help organisations make sense of their digital communications, including websites, mobile apps, social media and email newsletters.  We help plan and execute digital fundraising strategies, advise on the most appropriate fundraising platforms and how to convert casual web browsers into supporters and donors.

Come over to talk to us about your fundraising problems and communications conundrums and we’ll see if digital can help.

The web is changing the world.  Make sure you don’t get left behind.
