CTT partners with WorldPay

Charity Technology Trust (CTT) is now an Accredited Partner of WorldPay, so can offer its full range of online multi-currency payment solutions to partner charities.

Global multi-currency online payment processor WorldPay has announced that over 20 of the UK’s major charities have signed up to benefit from online fundraising techniques through its partnership with specialist IT solution provider Charity Technology Trust (CTT).

CTT, itself a registered charity, was specially formed to increase the efficiency of UK charities with the use of new technology and the Internet, and through its relationship with WorldPay, now helps to boost the income of charities such as Oxfam, PDSA, NSPCC, and The National Trust.

CTT has several key initiatives in online fundraising available or pending. CTT Raffles, its online raffle engine,

has raised over £70,000 in 11 months, from a total of 20 raffles. It allows donors to buy raffle tickets online through a secure micro-site powered by WorldPay’s secure online payment processing technology.

As a WorldPay Accredited Partner, CTT is able to offer the full range of WorldPay products to its own partner charities. Its partners benefit from preferential payment processing rates especially for charities. CTT is also soon to launch CTT Communications, a Web-based bulk email device that will empower charities to send newsletter, mailing and fundraising campaigns.

David Sear, Chief Operating Officer of WorldPay, said: “It is increasingly evident that charities must maximise their fundraising capacity by the use of accessible donation channels such as the Internet. We are very proud of our association with CTT, and feel certain it will continue to benefit both CTT and its member charities.”

Peter Sweatman, Founder and CEO of CTT commented: “Our aim is to improve charities’ efficiency and their donor relationships by the production of fun, secure fundraising and promotional tools using digital media. WorldPay’s preferential charity rates and secure payment processing systems ensure key financial benefits for each charity as well as engendering crucial donor confidence. In this, WorldPay has always been the obvious choice for us.”
