CEO Richard introduces you to Technology Trust

Now more than ever, modern technology is capable of helping charities to accelerate their missions and increase their impact. Against this setting though, the charity sector is the least digitally mature of any industry in the UK.

Since 2001, we’ve been trying to correct this by providing cheaper access to the IT products that can make the biggest difference to charities, while also educating charity workers, volunteers and trustees on how to use available tech.

As a registered charity ourselves, we’re dedicated to doing everything we can to help other charities across the UK, whether they are household names or tiny, local organisations.

Our mission is to empower charities to accelerate their missions through technology. It might not be glamourous, but we know it’s vital that the sector embraces technology to survive in the modern age.

    Impact Stories

    • Facial Palsy UK

      Facial Palsy UK is a small charity supporting people affected by facial paralysis and their close friends and family. They needed a platform to sell items to raise funds to support their work, but didn’t have the budget. Thankfully, we were able to connect them to a Shopify donation, which has saved them money and helped them raise more.

    • Dumfries and Galloway Family History Society

      The Dumfries and Galloway Family History Society promotes the study of family history across three counties in Southwest Scotland. They’re run exclusively by volunteers and due to the nature of modern research, much of their work is computer-based. When their systems became outdated, they couldn’t afford to upgrade through commercial routes, but were able to completely upgrade their systems through tt-exchange donations.

    • RSPCA

      The Hull and East Riding branch of the RSPCA is affiliated to the national society, but is an autonomous charity, and is responsible for its own management and fundraising. They were using Windows XP after it ceased to be supported and couldn’t fundraise for office equipment, but were able to completely overhaul their internal IT systems thanks to donations arranged through the tt-exchange programme.
