We wanted to put together a list of things we think charities should be thinking of digitally over the next year and a few tips on and links to bits of software we like that might make your digital planning and measuring go a bit smoother!
It's certainly not all-encompassing, but it's some of the stuff we're particularly interesting in right now and feel it can beneft charities to start thinking about. We can write more blogs like this if you like them, there's much more digital, marketing and backend stuff we could give your charity heaps of advice about.
It's been a few months since we set up our charity Pinterest pages back in October 2013 and we have been really bowled over with the amount of interaction and how well people are responding to the content.
At the time we wrote the initial blog we only has seven boards and a handful of pins.
We have been working really hard to build this up and now have 25 boards and almost 300 pins. We are thrilled to see that we get several repins on a daily basis as well as a growing number of followers. Why not join them by following us on Pinterest too.
We’re probably about halfway through our reviews of apps that have been created by UK charities.
The last review was part five, where we covered apps by the National Trust, Breast Cancer Care and the (US wing) of the Stand Up To Cancer campaign.
And in posts prior to that we also covered many other charities including Macmillan, Dog's Trust, Save the Children, WellChild, UNHCR, Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, Meningitis Trust the British Heart Foundation and many more.
Tax exempt status of registered charities and online security
All of the charities listed on this website are registered with the Charity Commission in the United Kingdom. Like any business, charities have to submit Tax Returns to HM Revenue and Customs, but all donations are declared and the charities do not have to pay tax on them. This means all your donation to charity will help to further their vision and goals.
Registered charity numbers
Each charity's registered number can be seen prominently displayed on the bottom of their respective pages on this site and underneath their logos.
