About us

At Charity Digital our mission is simple, we want to help other charities increase their impact by empowering them to be more digital. And we do this through 3 key verticals. 

  1. Providing access to the software products charities need, at dramatically reduced prices.
  2. Publishing content (articles, podcasts, videos, webinars etc.) that educate charity professionals and volunteers on how to make better use of digital tools and technologies.
  3. Running physical and virtual events that upskill charity professionals and volunteers, and inspires them to share those skills and make changes in their organisation.

Over the last 3 years, we have made strides in developing the value we offer charities and their employees. Following our rebranded from tech-trust to Charity Digital and our website overhaul we’ve seen exponential growth - doubling our user base, launching our #BeMoreDigital conference and virtual events days, and granting the sector access to almost £100 Million of software savings.

Commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion
We have much to learn about attracting and recognising more leaders who are people of colour and committed to making our organisation more diverse. It’s really important to us that this is represented on the Charity Digital team. We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are underrepresented throughout the charity sector.
