Larger charities not fully embracing digital donations

A survey of UK charities earlier this year found that one in five charities don’t have facilities to accept online donations. Almost nine tenths of those with such facilities used third party sites to process donations.

Offline payments still account for 80% of donations, with a lack of a “computer savvy” donor base seen as a major barrier.

Research commissioned by Barclays Digital Giving was undertaken in February and March, sampling UK based charities with a minimum turnover of three million pounds.

See The Guardian’s Voluntary Sector Network coverage or Barclay’s press release – we haven’t spotted a link to the full research report yet.
