We believe that local is better. Every single day we are helping thousands of UK community groups do amazing things. Since 2009 we have distributed £40M in online donations, with £5M in match funding given to over 4,000 local organisations.

The demand for grant funding in the UK’s third sector has never been greater. Giving by all UK foundations is worth over £8bn per year across multiple sectors and causes. Today’s changemakers need access to simple, streamlined, efficient and measurable funding process, and that's what we deliver.
