Charities Trust, one of the UK’s leading donation management organisations and YourCause, the US-based leader in enterprise philanthropic technology, have joined forces to boost employee-driven charitable giving in the United Kingdom.
Charities Trust will provide YourCause clients with charitable payment processing to UK-based charities, as well as expand YourCause's international charity database with the addition of over 210,000 registered UK charities. The global partnership will provide greater charity choice and increase employee giving capacity to the YourCause Global Good Network, which consists of over 300 corporations and nearly 8 million employees located in more than 170 countries.
“In 2017, the YourCause platform enabled employees to donate over one million dollars to charities based in the United Kingdom. Year after year, employees expect more from their employers in the global offerings of their corporate social responsibility and philanthropy programs,” said Matt Combs, Founder and CEO of YourCause. "To meet these demands, corporations must offer easy to use tools that encourage employee participation in workplace giving and volunteering programs, backed by reliable, transparent, and secure global charity vetting and payment distribution services from partners such as Charities Trust."
Charities Trust will provide charity verification and payment processing services for UK organisations. This partnership further expands YourCause’s flexible and trusted global vetting and payment distribution processes, ensuring that clients have access to a comprehensive charity database verified against both UK and US standards.
The partnership will also support Payroll Giving and the claiming of Gift Aid, providing companies with UK-based employees with a seamless giving experience that takes advantage of incentives unique to the United Kingdom.
Linda Minnis, CEO of Charities Trust, said of the partnership, “We are delighted to be working as YourCause’s preferred payment partner in the United Kingdom. We share many values, including a determination to ensure that we provide the widest choice of corporate and employee giving solutions. We know this collaboration will create significant opportunities for both parties and benefit many more charities. Between our organisations, we currently have some of the largest global companies as clients and look forward to providing them with greater charity choice and enhanced employee giving options.”
