GiveSmart merges UK and Europe event delivery with Givergy
Now working together to provide the very best technology and service
GiveSmart UK has merged its UK and Europe event delivery business with Givergy with immediate effect in order to become the leader in UK and European fundraising technology and services.
Under the Givergy brand name, both companies will be able to work together and use the very best fundraising technology, along with exceptional service levels, to raise even more funds for charities. Together, in the past 12 months, Givergy and GiveSmart has supported over 1,500 events and online auctions, raising over 25 million for UK charities.
Givergy’s Managing Director, Jon Douglas said: A natural love for technology, a passion for innovation, a desire to provide the very best service and a complete understanding of the charity industry – the synergies between both firms were always clear and as a result it is a privilege to welcome GiveSmart into the Givergy brand. We are totally committed to working together as one in order to benefit all charities in the UK and Europe and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of our now, combined, team.
In the short term, all current GiveSmart clients will have the option to use the Givergy technology for upcoming events or, if they prefer, stick with the GiveSmart system. In the longer term however the best practice of both firms will be combined in order to ensure the merged entity, Givergy, provide the very best technology, payment gateway, service and lot items in order to benefit all charities as much as possible.
As with the acquisition of Lumis fundraising arm this time last year, the merger is another step in the development of Givergy’s international expansion as well as strengthening the company’s position in the UK and Europe. After opening offices in the US, Canada, Australia and Hong Kong the merger with GiveSmart increases Givergy’s capabilities domestically and enhances its reputation as the global leader in fundraising and technology services.
Together, we look forward to helping our charity partners raise more. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
