Share this post


Are you running a not-for-profit organisation? Have you discovered all that the Charity Excellence website has to offer? It exists to help you find funding in tough times and make your life easier, bringing together a whole host of free resources.

What is Charity Excellence?

With 40,000 members, growing at a rate of 2,200 a month, Charity Excellence is the largest and fastest growing UK charity community; nearly half of users rate it 10/10.

It’s a free one-stop-shop for anything that anyone in the non-profit sector needs. It comprises its health check system, information hub, 3 finder directories and the AI Tech Bunnies.

What can you expect from this webinar?

Join Ian McLintock from Charity Excellence, for an insider briefing on how each aspect of the system supports fundraising and when and how to use them.

Ian will discuss the platform’s 3 integrated primary systems, with underpinning sub systems:

• An online health check enabling any charity to assess every area of activity, in-depth, in less than half a day, connected to the main information hub.

• The 3 Finder directories:

Funding Finder – finds funding, but its funding finder links also connect to 400+ other free grants databases and online funding lists giving users click through to more grant making organisations than any other system.

Help Finder – uses 19 search categories across 500+ providers to find free product donations, computers, software, legal, volunteering, office space, imagery and pretty much everything else.

Data Finder – finds data on the charity sector, the sectors we operate in and fundraising & donations, plus pro bono support and free data tools. It supports charities with funding bids, fundraising research, planning, campaigns and impact reports, and sector organisations with research and lobbying Government.

• AI Tech Bunnies. Using Biomni’s AI machine learning software the bots provide an extremely simple to use interface that responds to questions 24/7.

Finding Support – they help anyone to navigate the CEF to find what they need and help with any problems.

Welfare Help & Funding – enable any of the sector’s estimated 14 million staff and volunteers to find welfare support and funding, including supporting those being abused.

Answering Any Question – the AI knowledge bases have been very significantly built out to cover the UK regulatory framework and we will continue to build on this by moving the information hub resources links across over the coming 3 months.
