We’re a charity that is doing things differently. We have an exclusive focus on creating impact with digital channels. From the start we’ve put data driven insights at the heart of our approach, with a drive towards scalable results and helping the sector grow and develop best practice.

We are delighted by the success so far of the Website Grant Programme, helping organisations to dramatically increase income (by over £1M) and impact. We have also been reactive to feedback, and are working with a partner to develop a small charity website programme launching shortly.

This year we are expanding out our impact into many different areas, firstly into Facebook Grants, which we hope to follow with a Google Adwords programme later this year.

We have been excited by the response to our Digital Skills Timebank and so are recruiting a new member of staff to get more blue chip companies on board before inviting charities to apply for volunteer days to help with digital projects from senior technology consultants.

"We are really happy with the impact the Transform Foundation's Charity Website Grant had for us. Everyone from the Chief Executive down has given great feedback on the site, saying it is far more modern and far more professional. As well as helping support our fundraising, it is also proving to be a service-user tool that is helping us put people in touch with their local Home-Starts when they need support, or when they want to volunteer their time."

We have also worked to provide education, such as our GDPR paper that we have collaborated on with a Managing Director at Accenture.

Finally we are diligently working to be a voice for the charity space in digital, providing a powerful Tech Blog that pulls together the latest insights into nonprofit digital marketing which we publicise to a 15,000 strong charity following on Twitter.

"The Transform Foundation has given us the opportunity to develop a website and knowledge base ordinarily beyond the reach of a charity of our size. We have procured and produced an engaging and responsive website efficiently, with the confidence and skills to develop and adapt our digital presence going forward. We can maintain and improve the site easily, with excellent ongoing support and training from our providers. Feedback about our site has been really positive, as has its impact across our charity."

Adoption Focus

Our first year has been a very busy time, we have encountered so many incredible and inspiring charities, funded some truly exciting projects and seen some incredible results. This year, we are excited by the growing team and trustee board and the many new projects that are launching.

Please do sign up to our next drinks event, being hosted at the Royal Society of Arts, where our Chairman will be making our latest funding announcements and talking about what more is in store for 2017.
