Rapidata's Charity Direct Debit Tracking Report 2019

The Charity Direct Debit Tracking Report monitors Direct Debit donation data since 2003, and is a unique and sought-after benchmarking resource for fundraisers and organisations alike.

This year's report looks at the impact of GDPR on regular giving, indicating that the new regulation had a ‘major’ impact on Direct Debit donations. The report also shows:

  • Donor Direct Debit cancellations fell to a new low during 2018.
  • Acquisition of new supporters dropped by almost a third as charities pulled back on donor recruitment campaigns to adjust to the new data protection requirements.
  • Growth of donors signing up to Direct Debit online, with a 55% increase over the past year.

When we look at the advancements in payment technology, it is quite astounding. Who'd have predicted a decade ago that we would be using contactless cards and mobile phone apps to pay bills, carry out banking and donate to our favourite causes?

Our free payments research paper offers an insight into how technology and attitudes are driving change, and how not for profit organisations can respond and adapt.

“The ability for participants to gain sponsors directly within Facebook has been enormously helpful, as have been the staff at Rapidata.  I shall look to use them for all my events from now on and will recommend to all the charities we support.”
