Sussex Community Foundation are working with local community groups and charities to enable them to access online fundraising through a website called Localgiving.com
What is Localgiving.com?
Localgiving.com is a unique website that enables community groups and charities to fundraise online and build up a group of donors who support the work you do.
Registering on Localgiving.com gives you your own unique web address with webpages you can easily update and receive automated donations and Gift Aid through, so you can receive and manage donations from new and existing supporters.
Localgiving.com also provides guides, promotional tools and a dedicated Help Desk to support your online fundraising activities; there are local opportunities to work with other organisations and fundraising resources in developing your webpage to ensure an ongoing, reliable income source.
Donors are encouraged by the unique opportunity to search for, find and donate to local groups working in their community; and because all groups register through their local Community Foundation, donors can trust that their donation is being used effectively.
A video illustrating how Localgiving.com has benefitted an organisation can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4hhnXaYvaA
