Social Trends For Charity 2022

Go Digital

There is a range of support offered to charities to prove the effectiveness of digital skills & grabbing the opportunity that digital tools offer. Whether it’s the The Charity Digital Code of Practice (developed by the Charity Commission, NCVO, Office for Civil Society, Small Charities Coalition and Navca) or CAST’s Fuse programme that is helping nonprofits discover, design and develop user-centred digital services that improve lives, there is plenty happening in the sector that proves that digital transformation is well and truly underway.

Voice Search

In the charity sector, voice technology is rapidly evolving. Over 20 billion voice searches are made every month and by 2021, 50% of all searches will be carried out by voice. While the British Heart Foundation became the first UK charity to allow donations through Amazon Alexa, charity supporters are more likely to be looking for something that will fit into their daily lives and make an existing task easier and quicker.

Facebook’s Charitable giving tools

With the introduction of tools for Facebook Messenger that allow it to act more like a CRM and integrate with existing CRM Systems, with relevant permission from users meaning that users can give permission to charities to contact them via email.

Email- Marketing & Instagram stories could also help the charities reach a larger number of consumers/donors.
