Keen London – Case Study
Keen London, a charity that provides free sports for children with disabilities in London, became a Localgiving member in May 2017 after receiving a free annual membership as a member of Sported.
In their first year, Keen London raised over £7,000 through Localgiving. In this time they successfully galvanised support from across their community – persuading over 60 people to fundraise for them and encouraging many more to donate to their cause. In their own words, “even though we are a very small charity, we have lots of people willing to work up a sweat to make us money”.
Having tried alternative fundraising platforms, Keen London has been hugely impressed by how simple and intuitive Localgiving is to use. They see this as a real benefit to smaller, local groups with limited experience of online fundraising.
Keen London are excited to fully explore the benefits of their Localgiving membership in future. They are particularly looking forward to participating in the various match funds and competitions Localgiving offer throughout the year.
Sported members only have until the end of April to complete their registration with Localgiving if they wish to benefit from this free membership offer.
