Education Fundraising


With over 20 years of experience in the sector, our education fundraising fundraising services are proven in helping causes improve performance

Helping to transform your online fundraising for schools

Harness the power of your alumni network to support your fundraising campaigns and encourage them to give something back to support the next generation of students by making a regular financial donation.

Rapidata’s Direct Debit Managed Service provides an outsourced service for the management and processing of Direct Debit payments. If you’re using telephone fundraising to make donation requests we can support the telephone agency or student callers by receiving and processing the payment instructions they’ve taken aswell as advising on the telephone scripts.

In between campaigns make sure you continue to raise support by using our online eDirectDebit and Card Payment Services. These provide your alumni group convenient ways to make a donation or set up a continuous payment via your website.

Creating an exclusive community of former students is a great way to encourage others to set up a regular giving payment or provide a one-off donation. Rapidata’s Trigger Communication Service helps you create a well-structured intelligent communications plan that will help you keep in regular contact with your donors, provide news and other updates, and make new appeals for financial support.

Fundraising Events

If you manage fundraising events, Rapidata’s Online Fundraising Services provide integrated event registration and personal fundraising pages for your supporters, all helping to maximise your event income and streamline event administration.

Rapidata services for alumni programmes

Providing outsourced services to support regular giving and online fundraising is core to what we do, and we’ll work with you to ensure our services deliver exactly what you need to support both online and offline fundraising activities.

A dedicated Account Manager will be your single point of contact and will work with you to understand what you do, present new ideas for discussion, and oversee the setup and ongoing management of all your services with us.

“We are a new start-up charity in the first year of operations so there was a need to set up the Direct Debit process. Rapidata held our hands all the way through and supported us in an area that had moved on hugely since I’d last worked in it. We would probably have been floundering without their help”
