We're a digital charity empowering civil society
Do IT Foundation has been digitally connecting communities for over ten years, making it easy for people to come together and do good things.
We're the charity foundation partner of the Do IT Life social enterprise whose technology helps people to do good and feel healthier and happier. Our work is all about transforming the way small charities and voluntary groups access vital funding and serving as a personal data guardian for Do IT users.
We started out as a partner for a government led R&D volunteering programme with NCVO and Volunteering Matters. We launched our first digital project, a social action network called ivo.org, in 2009.
In 2012 we acquired Do-it.org, the nation’s first and largest digital volunteer matching site, which we transformed into a social platform for volunteers and the community groups that engage them. In its first year the platform won extraordinary success and placed over 200,000 new volunteers as well as winning two leading net industry awards, a WeBBY and a Lovie.
Realising our ambition for the long term future of Do-it was bigger than our capacity to achieve it, we teamed up with EdTech company Vivo to create a joint social enterprise called Do IT Life providing a new home for Do-it to thrive in and grow. The Do IT charity has since evolved into an exciting digital corporate foundation.
