- Direct integration from the event entry and page creation processes has made it easier and more tempting than ever before to start fundraising online.
Roger Craven, Vir2
- Until not long ago, mobile operators took too high a proportion of the donation to charities, making it uneconomical as a fundraising tool. Roger’s behind-the-scenes work with network operators has removed that obstacle and all charities can now accept mbile donations without a network charge.
