The work of charities is all about making a difference, but in today's changing world, it can be more challenging than ever to engage with supporters and fundraisers.

With the loss of traditional fundraising events and key resources due to the pandemic over the last 2 years, many charities are relying on their supporter database more than ever to communicate and engage. As a result of this, it's never been more important to have accurate data, from address details to telephone and email addresses.

We understand the challenge facing charities right now and have a number of services to help, including a dedicated Charity Sector Data Specialist and Data Quality Services available at a reduced cost price for non-profits.
