Funraisin + massive : supporting charities
The Us and Us collective united innovators across the digital, events and charity sectors to share their knowledge.
In March, Funraisin and massive established a collective of innovators and leaders to further support the third sector with the guide and as many charities as possible with help and support suitable to keeping their fundraisers, fundraising.
It was clear to both organisations that the impact of COVID19 was wide-spreading and required real collaboration. It wasn't just technical delivery in demand, and it wasn’t solely support for ideation, engagement or supporter care. Charities needed all of these elements and more; what campaigns will work during these times? How can we modify fundraising to relate to people in their new locked-down world?
So Funraisin and massive set out to do two things: provide crucial support offerings and bring in more experts. The Us and Us collective was born.
Free fundraising support provided by experts in the Us & Us collective virtual sessions.

This moment will likely be the definitive trigger where true digital change will happen, we will see new emerging giving behaviours and we all need to help charities be ready for this. When markets begin to rebound, and we believe they will, we must anticipate it will be in a way that may be different from how we operated before COVID-19.
For this reason, we are bringing together a co-operative of brilliant contributors and the best and amazing talent available, to help as many charities keep raising vital funds.
We have to tackle an immediate emergency across many charities and the sector to be able to cope with adapting at such pace, and be able to still bring immediate income with the lowest effort. We have no time to waste.

Every charity we speak to has been impacted by the current situation. It’s unprecedented.
While we know things will recover for physical events, there’s a pressing need for charities to offer alternative fundraising activities, so their supporters can fundraise for them now.
That’s why we’re pleased to partner with the team at Funraisin to put something back. We’re mobilising our entire team to support charities to get creative and keep supporters engaged and fundraising through great events and campaign ideas. When it’s needed most.
