Justgiving launches online payroll giving service

first_imgOnline giving service Justgiving has launched a new service to make payroll giving ‘fast, easy, fun and interactive.’The Justgiving payroll giving solution allows employees to choose from over600 charities to donate to, without being restricted by a Professional Fundraising Organisations (PFO). As such smaller charities can benefit from the payroll giving scheme just as much as their largercounterparts, says the online giving service. The Justgiving solution automatesadministration processes and reduces associated costs for employers, using the benefits of online giving. Advertisement Tagged with: Consulting & Agencies Digital  27 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis By identifying donation milestones and communicating them to the workforce, Justgiving believes that its service can make payroll giving “more engaging and interactive and bring the benefits of payroll giving such as improved levels of staff motivation and retention to the organisation.”David Brocklebank, sales and marketing director, Justgiving, says: “Too often, companies and employees are guided by PFOs who typically encourage fundraising to be directed towards the larger charities.However people are more likely to donate to a cause that they feel passionately about and this will differ from person to person.Justgiving allows employees to select the charity of their choice without any pressure from the PFO and in their own time. Infacilitating this process, the employer is perceived as supporting causes which are important to each member of staff.”Justgiving contrasts its online service to the current paper-based system used by many payroll givers. Currently if employees want to participate in a payroll giving scheme, they usually have to complete a form by hand, pass the information tothe human resources or finance department where the information will be manually entered into the company’s payroll system. In medium to large organisations, says Justgiving, this often requires the services of at least one full time employee. Justgiving points out that its service will therefore offer administrative savings for medium to large companies. In addition, “it will make it easier for smaller organisations to offer payroll giving in the first place.”Justgiving enables one off and regular donations to be made so forexample, if an employee is running a marathon, all sponsorship of theindividual by colleagues can easily be processed through payroll giving.Employees can review and modify their charity choice in response to emergency appeals, a key event in their own life such as a wedding or birthday, or to support individual sponsorship of friends or family. Justgiving say that their solution is “simple to integrate into an organisation’s existing systems and no specialist intranet is needed.” Justgiving is offering free set up for organisations who sign up for itspayroll giving solution before 31 October 2003. The full price after thistime will be £12,500.

Orange offers microvolunteering mobile app

first_img Howard Lake | 31 March 2011 | News Tagged with: app corporate Digital microdonations mobile Volunteering Mobile company Orange today launches its ‘Do Some Good’ volunteer application, designed to help mobile phone users contribute short bursts of volunteering action wherever they are. The mobile enables people to volunteer five minutes of their time and expertise, at a time and place that suits their lifestyle to help with various tasks from the prevention of bullying to turning derelict plots into community gardens.Volunteering England is supporting the initiative and encouraging people to download and use the free app.‘Micro-volunteering’ actions include:* CyberMentors on the move – to help authorities build an accurate picture and scale of bullying, users can log whether they or someone else is being bullied, reporting specific locations.* Places to Play Map – to locate and map playable places in the community for community groups, families and children with users able to take photos of places in their area to tag and share with others.* Guerrilla Gardening – to map derelict sites for green makeovers encouraging a greener UK.The 12 charity partners for the Do Some Good app are Samaritans, Groundworks, Cybermentors, Guerrilla Gardening, Futuremorph, Photofoundation, WCAFI, Young Foundation (I do ideas), Sustrans, Mission Explore, Sustainable Restaurant Association, Practical Action. Over time, the number of actions on the app will grow as Orange works with new charities and social entrepreneurs to develop more.Andrea Grace Rannard, Further and Higher Education Senior Manager, Volunteering England said: “Mobile volunteering is an innovative approach with the potential to engage new audiences in volunteering and have an enormous impact on the lives of people across the UK.”Prime Minister David Cameron MP welcomed the app. He said:“Millions of people who don’t currently volunteer would like to do so if they had the time and information to make it as easy as possible. ‘Do Some Good’ is a great way of tapping into this huge pool of untapped volunteering energy.”Orange say that, according to research it has commissioned, the main barrier to volunteering is lack of time. The study found that if volunteering was made easier for people they would do so, with over two thirds saying they would rather give up their time if they had to choose between donating £5 or giving up 5 minutes.Marketiers4DC are presenting a programme about the new app today. Helen Davies from Orange will explain who could benefit from volunteers’ help and how to get involved. She will be joined by Jogesh Limbani from Orange, who will be talking about how technology can help make volunteering easier.  133 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisementcenter_img Orange offers microvolunteering mobile app AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
