Good2Give hits $200 million donation milestone
Good2Give has hit a new milestone by delivering $200 million worth of donations to Australian charities
Good2Give has hit a major milestone by delivering $200 million in donations to more than 7,000 Australian and international communities.
The online platform, which provides technological solutions to assist in the connection of donors, charities and businesses, now aims to reach the target of $300 million by 2020 as part of their quest to build a more giving society.
Lisa Grinham, Chief Executive Officer at Good2Give, said she was “thrilled” to announce their achievement.
“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,” Grinham said.
Grinham said that their 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.
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 Grinham.
“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.”
