Features

Charity Hive is a beautifully simple system that contains everything you'll need to help grow your charity and its fundraising activities

Fundraising Platform

Helping you raise more

feature-icon
Customised

A platform that is customised (e.g. logo and colour scheme), has a user-friendly interface and that integrates with your own website (if you don’t require the optional Marketing Platform).

feature-icon
Powerful Admin Suite

Manage everything within your Admin Dashboard; create events, manage users, edit products, send messages and understand supporter, donor and fundraising activity in real-time.

feature-icon
Safe. Secure. Fast

Our fast UK based Cloud hosted solution uses highly secure containers, so you don’t need to worry about hosting or security. GDPR compliancy is integrated “out-of-the-box”, so your data is safe and secure.

feature-icon
Instant payments

Unlike other fundraising services, where you could be waiting weeks or months to receive your funds, there is no waiting around with Charity Hive! As we use your own payment gateway account, funds are deposited directly to you when a donor pays or donates.

feature-icon
Gift Aid

Gift Aid opt-in is available for donors and Gift Aid reports can be generated for manual submission to HMRC for processing. Donation reports, including supporter contact information, gross and net donations can also be exported.

feature-icon
Unlimited

There are no limitations with Charity Hive. You can have as many events, pages, news items, shop products, auction lots, fundraisers or users as you require.

Events and Fundraising

Fundraising made easy

feature-icon
Receiving Donations

The donation process is easy, secure and allows your donors to either give a one-off donation via debit/credit card, Apple Pay, Google Pay, or setup and manage a recurring monthly donation. Donors can leave a public viewable message or remain completely anonymous.

feature-icon
Fundraising Events

If your charity is organising its own fundraising events, then you can create entries with their own specific options, such as entry fee, minimum fundraising target, maximum capacity, team creation and more.

feature-icon
Supporter Created

Your supporters can create their own fundraising events, and they have the ability to raise money for any event - e.g. London Marathon, triathlon, bike ride or walk, ask friends for donations rather than birthday or wedding gifts, pay tribute to a loved one by collecting donations for a cause they cared about and anything else...

Supporter Focused

Whether your supporters have registered for one of your official events, or they’ve created their own; they will have their personal customisable fundraising page, which will allow others to donate direct and leave messages of support. This ensures that all fundraising efforts are in one central location and your users have the ability to share their unique website URL address pages across social media or send to family, friends and colleagues via email, WhatsApp, SMS, etc.

Tickets

Sell tickets and manage bookings

feature-icon
Ticketed Events

Sell tickets for your events, such as a Gala Dinner, with the ability to set a maximum capacity with “Sold Out” handling to prevent over booking, standard of VIP ticket options, prices for individual tickets or discounted for multiple “table of 10” pricing structures.

feature-icon
Booking Information

The lead booking user has the option to add guest names and dietary requirements so there is no need to chase for these and you'll be able to complete your guest list well in advance of the actual event!

feature-icon
Coupon Codes

Discount coupon codes can be created and assigned to events, tickets and shop purchases. Each coupon has a number of options, such as a flat rate or percentage, expiry date, number of times it can be used and more

Ticketing

Ticketed events have an optional ticket system built in, and once enabled on a event-by-event basis, you will be able to automatically issue a downloadable PDF to all ticket purchasers. Each ticket carries a unique QR code (Quick Response code) which can be scanned at the event in order to allow entry and to build your attendance list/register.

Online Shop

Sell merchandise and help raise your profile

feature-icon
Official Merchandise

Sell your official merchandise as standalone products via the online shop, or up-sell when users are registering for an event, such as event specific t-shirts, running bibs, bags, mugs, etc.

feature-icon
Fulfilment

Where required, we also have preferred suppliers who will be able to fulfil orders for you, so rather than you having to keep large amounts of stock, each order can be fulfilled as and when they are received.

feature-icon
Upsell

Upsell with official merchandise that can be purchased during the sign-up process of any specific event.

Auction

Online bidding

feature-icon
Real-time Auctions

The Auction feature of Charity Hive enables you to create online auction lots, giving you another way to raise more funds for your charity. Watch it all happen in real time via the Admin Suite! Review all bids that have been placed on an item and view the details of each bidder.

feature-icon
Anything goes!

If you have been given signed memorabilia or a “money can’t buy” experience, then add it to the site and promote to your supporters through an email campaign or via social media.

A "lot" of options!

Features include starting bid, reserve price, auction duration and more. Run one lot, or have several at a time - it’s entirely up to you!

Your users will then bid until the end of the auction time, with email notifications along the way and the winner then paying through the system.

Raffles

Host your own raffles

feature-icon
Paperless

Once you've setup your raffle, your donors can purchase as many tickets as they want and as we're completely online, all tickets are randomly generated and issued via email.

feature-icon
Automated and Random!

An automated draw takes place utilising a Random Number Generator, which has been tested and approved by an independent, third party test house.
