Rapidata announced as the IoF’s Payments Partner
We’re very pleased to reveal our new partnership with the Institute of Fundraising, becoming their trusted Payments Partner, to promote payment innovation in fundraising.
This 3 year partnership is designed to provide insight and support for charities in keeping pace with the rapidly evolving payments landscape, highlighting new technologies that could improve the donation experience. This includes developing new research and providing IoF members with regular updates about payments, how it’s changing and what this means for regular giving.
With the raft of new payment options that are continually evolving, it’s clear that consumers are seeking fast, easy and convenient ways to pay or make a donation. Giving supporters payment options that work for them as well as providing multiple ways for donors to engage is critical.
Scott Gray, Head of Payments at The Access Group and chair of IoF Suppliers Forum, said
“The way that people make payments is rapidly evolving and it is not just an opportunity, but a necessity for charities to keep pace. When people donate, they want to do so quickly and easily, often at the click of a button or swipe of a card, but always ensuring their transactions are handled safely and securely. Technology is changing all the time and this means charities have a multitude of opportunities for accepting donations and processing transactions. We have worked alongside the IoF for many years and we are delighted to formally become their Payment Partner, working to help charities adapt and encourage innovation in the field.”
“Now as part of the Access Group, we look forward to bringing greater depths of knowledge and research to enrich the fundraising community about how they can make the most of the payment revolution that is occurring and change in donor expectations.”
Adam Bryan, Director of Innovation at the IoF, said
“Rapidata continues to provide support and commitment to the fundraising community and at the IoF we are pleased to begin our formal partnership. Digital technology has revolutionised donor behaviour and how charities interact with the public, and I’m excited that together we will be able to support the future of payment technology for our members.”
Through this partnership, we are looking forward to providing support to charities in their payment journeys, helping organisations to adapt and keep pace.
