Innovation in online donations

Today Zone's Julie Dodd and Jonathan Simmons spoke to the Guardian about a subject close to their hearts

Granary Square

Today the Guardian’s Voluntary Sector Network ran an interesting article featuring comments from our not-for-profit gurus Jonathan Simmons and Julie Dodd (pictured above).

The article looks at how APIs are helping to drive innovation in online donations to charities, and how some groundbreaking initiatives are harnessing the technology. We are in good company, with the Institute of Fundraising‘s digital media manager Tom Lodziak also offering his insights.

It’s a topic that’s close to the heart of our board director Jonathan. Indeed, we can almost hear him banging his fist on the desk as he bellows the line, “It should be the aspiration of all charities to create a seamless donation journey whether on or offline.” That’s our Jonathan.
