Dobook Limited/ whatCharity.com

whatCharity.com is a one-stop social marketplace for charities, individuals and businesses. We aim to revolutionalise transparency and efficiency in the charity sector and to engage individuals in a completely new way.

The charity sector in the UK has been seen to be in crises for almost 10 years, stemming from lack of trust, absence of transparency as well as shifting customer needs – we believe our product will solve many of the sector problems. We will deliver comparability of social impact data (= where the money actually goes) in a compelling way, and new, permission based communication opportunities to the industry allowing charities to speak to their audience in a way they want to be communicated to. Further, WhatCharity.com is an experience for the individual, where they can engage with charities, rate them and be rewarded for their giving and volunteering.

This market leading platform is being developed by a seasoned start up team who have built their careers in charities, marketing, technology and strategy consulting as well as digital innovation. Our product roadmap consists of three standalone products, which will bring distinct benefits to the charity sector and smaller charitable organisations. We operate as a freemium model with individual users paying nothing and basic charity profiles being free.

whatCharity.com is a functioning ecosystem with benefits delivered to individuals, companies, brands and charities. It is the aim of WhatCharity.com to launch into several charitable markets, creating a global charitable market place. Social impact, efficiency reporting tools and engagement will be developed further and will become a standard for comparison of charities and charitable giving.

Ethos

We aim to grow the total amount of resources given to the charitable sector by creating new type of transparency and comparability and positively commercialise the charitable sector. We do this as an independent, enthusiastic commercial venture generating both value add for our society and good returns for our shareholders.
