Introduction to Give a Little
How can Give A Little help charities and charitable groups in NI?
Give A Little aims to be the most easy-to-use, flexible and affordable way for charities of all sizes to collect donations in a cashless society. We currently have over 3,500 charities using the platform and they have raised over £7m so far between them.
All kinds of charities are using Give A Little including Cancer Research UK, London Zoo and The Change Please Foundation. There are also hundreds of churches and other religious institutions using the platform so we would invite charities or Community Interest Companies (CIC) based in Northern Ireland to take a look!
Why is Give A Little different?
We are building a community where charities support each other. This model enables the smallest charities to access Give A Little for free, while the larger, more established charities benefit from valuable additional features by subscribing to Give A Little’s premium account. As Give A Little grows, we in turn give back by reducing our fees. The platform is also part-funded by Give A Little’s parent company, Caution Your Blast Ltd., as part of its mission to use digital as a force for good.
How can charities get started with cashless giving?
As the world’s only dedicated point of donation software platform, Give A Little is designed to be an enabler and to integrate with a range of devices, payment processors and technologies, so charities can select what works best for them.
Choose one option of the options below or a combination to get started:
Option 1: DIY
Combine an Android tablet/ Smartphone with a SumUp card reader and the Give A Little platform allows you to create campaigns and set customisable donation amounts using Give A Little's free, basic account. Or upgrade to Premium for additional features including detailed reporting, GiftAid, remote device management and customisable campaigns.
Option 2: Donation Station
Give A Little is the software used by a growing number of device manufacturers including Northern Ireland based, Payaz and CollecTin. Choose from portable, handheld devices or fixed donation kiosks.
Option 3: Online Giving via Web or QR Codes
Create online campaigns easily from templates, adding custom video, images, donation amounts, and with valuable features such as regular monthly giving and QR codes. The average web donation amount via Give A Little is over £40 per donation. Choose between SumUp or Stripe for online web donation/transaction processing.
What training do you have available?
As technology evolves, we evolve with it. We learn about the latest cashless fundraising technologies and integrate the best into Give A Little so charities don’t have to.
We are putting on a free webinar with NICVA on Wednesday 25th May at 11am to talk you through all the latest cashless technologies and to answer any questions you have about how to start your cashless giving journey (register below).
This session will be facilitated online. We'll provide instructions and support for participants to get setup.
