TapSimple launches Virtual Events and Ticketing service for charities

"The charity sector suffers from lack of access to innovative technology, which means fundraising is taking a significant hit as we witness the continued decline of cash and rise of cashless payments"
Alex Coleridge

Feel-good fundraising platform TapSimple has today announced the launch of TapSimple Virtual Events and Ticketing, an integrated video conferencing, ticketing and donation service designed to help charities engage with stakeholders, volunteers and individuals online. Unlike other video conferencing options, the new TapSimple service enables supporters to donate at the moment of maximum engagement, with donation buttons embedded within the virtual event page.

At a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the third sector, TapSimple’s virtual event offering provides a safe and innovative way for charities to raise money.

Virtual events can be organised, managed, and analysed via the TapSimple Dashboard, where everything from virtual cookery classes, raffles and quiz nights, to networking and training, can be hosted. Charities will be able to engage remotely with key stakeholders and potential donors or volunteers, and share knowledge, insights and news.

TapSimple’s sophisticated reporting dashboard can be leveraged to create campaigns, manage teams and volunteers, and track donations. The platform’s capabilities also enable charities to unlock Gift Aid and optimise fundraising performance using advanced analytics.

The innovative start-up launched its first product, the Clip, in 2019; a donation device that enables contactless and chip & pin donations when paired with the TapSimple app, which helps charities to raise more for great causes in an increasingly cashless society.

A proud Trusted Supplier of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, TapSimple has already worked with numerous major charities, including NSPCC, Children with Cancer UK and Christian Aid.

Alex Coleridge, co-founder at TapSimple, commented: “The charity sector suffers from lack of access to innovative technology, which means fundraising is taking a significant hit as we witness the continued decline of cash and rise of cashless payments, combined with the impact of a global pandemic.

“At TapSimple, we want to empower charities by providing them with the tools they need to innovate and adapt to this changing environment. TapSimple Virtual Events and Ticketing is designed specifically for charities, so that users can manage entire campaigns and track and optimise donations simply and efficiently. At a time when people are still understandably cautious about attending events in person, charities will be able to reach out remotely, and can also target wider audiences online than they ever would live.

“We hope that, along with our cashless donation technology, charities will be well equipped to thrive.”
