The social enterprise Charity Checkout has announced that it has successfully raised over $1m to accelerate its growth. The charity tech firm is planning to increase its headcount to over 40 and will be investing heavily in its platform with the aim of becoming the world leader in charity and corporate employee-led fundraising. This round of investment was led by the founders of Octopus Group, Chris Hulatt and Simon Rogerson, who last week were announced EY Entrepreneur of the Year UK 2017. The investment round also included four existing investors.
“CSR Directors and Heads of Fundraising – whether they operate in the charity sector or other industries – face similar challenges. They have become more and more central to the growth of their businesses and socially influential, but the tools at their disposal aren’t keeping up with the size of the task. Things like lack of brand identity on fundraising pages, a poor and fractured fundraising experience, lack of centralisation and heavy admin processes are common themes. And this is where our new Corporate Fundraising platform comes in – the UK’s first white-label fundraising site for enterprises, which we hope will revolutionise the way the UK’s largest companies organise their employee-led fundraising.”
