Make a Donation

New sponsorship heralds increased business co-operation with the third sector

14 May 2015 10:30

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Cannon Moorcroft are the latest sponsors of make-a-donation.org, supporting their vision of changing the future of giving in the UK. As Cannon Moorcroft assist the third sector in this pioneering and highly-effective way, it perhaps heralds the start of increased co-operation between the business world and the third sector. Cannon Moorcroft’s sponsorship also challenges the norm - proving that any business, despite its size and nature, can truly help the third sector.

Cannon Moorcroft, Chartered Accountants based in High Wycombe, are the latest business to support make-a-donation.org and its bigger vision. make-a-donation.org is the only UK fundraising site which doesn’t charge charities any fees whatsoever, whilst others (including JustGiving) charge charities up to 6.3% in fees. It is with the support of businesses, such as Cannon Moorcroft, that charities can receive every last penny of every donation at make-a-donation.org. The sponsorship perhaps also indicates an increasing involvement of the business community in the third sector. Cannon Moorcroft prove that no matter the size of the business, it’s possible to support the third sector in a powerful and practical way. Long gone are the occasional office fundraising events - instead sponsoring Make a Donation permits businesses to potentially help thousands of charities at the same time.

How is this possible? make-a-donation.org works with the business community so that businesses effectively pay the fees usually charged to charities. This allows charities to receive 100% of their donations and businesses have the pleasure of making this possible. Not only do Cannon Moorcroft have the ability to continue supporting their favourite local charity, but they will also be enabling any charity in the world to fundraise fee-free at make-a-donation.org. Therefore, Cannon Moorcroft are helping both their local and wider community in a highly effective manner. Their sponsorship has an even greater effect too - they are helping Make a Donation move forward in their vision to change the way giving is paid for in the UK. make-a-donation.org believes that charging charities fees on donations is wrong and their platform proves that it’s not necessary, with sponsors such as Cannon Moorcroft only substantiating this. David Finch, CEO of make-a-donation.org, comments ‘As more businesses, fundraisers and charities get involved with make-a-donation.org, fees on donations and sponsorship for charities will become a thing of the past.’ We need to enter a new age of donating where businesses, charities and fundraisers work together as a community, something which is already happening at make-a-donation.org. James Moorcroft, Director at Cannon Moorcroft, adds ‘We are really pleased to be involved with Make a Donation and think it’s great that every £1 of our support enables charities to raise another £15, totally free of charges.’

Cannon Moorcroft’s sponsorship heralds a new era for business - one where not only is social responsibility key to business success, but one where the effects of even a small business’s social responsibility can touch a much larger community. Together, Cannon Moorcroft and make-a-donation.org are changing perceptions and provoking change, both in the business world and in the third sector.
