Good2Give has hit a major milestone in their quest to build a more giving society:
delivering $200 million in donations to more than 7,000 Australian and international communities.
“We are thrilled to announce that we have distributed $200 million to communities in need since 2001. Every individual and organisation we work with – each employee, client, charity and partner – has had a hand in this achievement,” said Lisa Grinham, Chief Executive Officer at Good2Give.
“When I consider the impact this money has made in so many communities from providing food to those who have none, to ground breaking medical research, to assisting people, animals and the environment during times of natural disasters locally and globally, it makes me truly proud of the work the dedicated team at Good2Give does.”
Lisa says a strong focus on continually evolving Good2Give’s technology solutions has been key to facilitating growth.
“With the rise of digital, especially with the purpose-led younger generation, it’s critical to keep pace with the way people choose to give. Our investment in digital infrastructure has seen workplace giving and other donations triple in only five years, fuelling employee engagement, enabling business to show they are socially responsible, and delivering vital funds to charities. Not to mention the streamlining of internal business processes delivering greater efficiencies. For many charities the impact of technology can be as exciting as it is daunting. Charities are also constantly asked to do more with less. That’s why we offer innovative giving solutions which help charities embrace technology to deliver to greater impact, whilst saving on operating costs. “
Good2Give’s most recent tech innovation is Fundraising at Work, a joint venture with GoFundraise that brings the organisations’ existing workplace giving and digital fundraising platforms together. The result is a one-stop-shop for businesses to manage, communicate and evaluate their staff fundraising and workplace giving programs – the first of its kind in the world.
“Technology is key to the future of giving. It is impacting how we give, how we connect, and how we deliver support where it’s needed most. To inspire and engage people to give, we need an acute understanding of how technology can make it easier to give, and how it can help companies, donors and charities connect,” said Lisa.
“Striving towards even bigger milestones requires an appetite for innovation to respond to the changing needs of businesses and donors. We will continue to form smart partnerships, maximise existing solutions, and invest in innovative new technology solutions to make it happen” said Lisa.
