Now that BTMydonate is ceasing trading in June 2019, a number of organisations are weighing up their alternatives.
There are any number of articles comparing the various offers but here are some of the better ones
- https://fundraising.co.uk/2018/02/09/round-up-low-cost-no-cost-fundraising-platforms/ – one of the more recent roundups – in September 2018
- https://www.charitydigitalnews.co.uk/2019/02/21/the-best-free-online-fundraising-platforms-for-charities/ – very well laid out and a good overview
- https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/family/charity-fundraising-sites/ – although it’s more than a year old – their comparison table is very useful – January 2018
For what it’s worth, having previously experimented with LocalGiving and Paypal, LASSN now uses CAFOnline to raise money for both its own activities and the Leeds Hardship Fund and VirginMoneyGiving as it’s main social-media friendly platform. These are not recommendations btw – just what we’ve settled upon as the right platforms for LASSN.
