What difference will you make?

Givto is unique. It's a bit like a digital version of the supermarket charity token schemes. It enables people to give to different charities but ensure that their personal information is safe. Our users and the charities we support have told us it is already making a difference and enabling charities to reach people who would never have heard of them otherwise. That's because no matter how big or small a charity is, or what cause they support, they all get a platform with Givto. We are still relatively new and unknown, so we have a lot of work to do in 2024 to grow our user base and raise more money for amazing causes. You will play a key role in ensuring that more people across the UK hear about Givto and join our community.  You will also be joining an amazing team of volunteers who develop and run the Givto service. We are a dynamic and friendly team who love to learn from each other, share best practice, and have fun too.
