MANCHESTER-based business Cedita has launched a not-for-profit platform that aims to help charities raise invaluable funds while they’re battling through the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, especially where their usual fundraising activities are not able to be carried out.
Funraising is a technology platform helping charities, foundations and other fundraisers to continue their efforts online through a series of hosted events, at a minimal cost. Founded in the unfortunate times of coronavirus where there is intense pressure on everyone to maintain a sense of normality, there is even more burden placed on charities who can no longer continue to fundraise.
A small and dedicated team at Cedita branched out to create software that can help the charities to continue these efforts, on a not-for-profit basis. By analysing other businesses that try to help, as well as speaking with a number of those affected, Funraising exists to fill gaps and ensure maximum returns to charities while keeping players engaged.
The platform takes only a cost-covering fee (0.9%) to cover bank transfers and hosting charges, with all remaining money going to the charity.
Rudi Visser, Managing Director of Cedita Ltd, told Charity Today:
“I’m extremely excited to introduce Funraising as Cedita’s first not-for-profit project, to help charities with their fundraising efforts through these tough times. A small dedicated team has worked hard to deliver a robust platform for live events to be hosted online, and we’re now looking forward to helping as many charities as possible with our platform.”
