Charities Trust is a national payroll giving and corporate donation management agency approved by the Inland Revenue. It is also a non-profit making organisation and a charity in its own right, based in the Brunswick Business Park area of Liverpool.
With the assistance of the Harnessing Digital Technologies project (part funded by ESF) Charities Trust was able to secure the deployment and development of a new software application, which linked various company intranets to the Charities Trust database so that the process whereby employees or businesses can donate to charities can be simplified resulting in an increase of usage.
In addition to this, a training need was necessary at Charities Trust to ensure all staff would use and follow the new systems effectively and also so that they can manage the clients/donations efficiently as well as the bespoke software developed.
This new software has changed the business process and has made it a lot easier for companies and invividuals to donate to Charitable causes, and there is also a lot more flexibility for payroll giving, which allows anyone who pays UK income tax to give regularly and on a tax free basis to the charities and good causes of their choice.
