Regular giving specialists

As an organisation with over 20 years’ experience in the charity fundraising sector, we’ve built up a solid understanding of donor behaviour. From our research and analysis we can advise on what encourages supporters to set up a regular Direct Debit, when donors are most likely to increase their donation, and when you’re at most risk from losing them.

Charity Direct Debit services

We will take care of all the administrative work involved in Direct Debit processing, including database management, sending payment instructions and collecting the Direct Debits on your behalf. There’s no additional software, hardware or training needed, and you can retain full control over your donors’ payment instructions. Read more about our Direct Debit Managed Service >

“I have chosen Rapidata at two charities I have worked at, it’s like I take them everywhere I go! They are experienced, knowledgeable and friendly with a can-do attitude, they are the kind of people I like to work with. Their trend analysis and sector relevant insights are invaluable to me and my team when we are planning our activity for the year.”
