We're a digital charity empowering civil society
Do IT Foundation has been digitally connecting communities for over fifteen years, making it easy for people to come together and do good things.
Our work is all about transforming the way small charities and voluntary groups access vital funding and growing new initiatives that help civil society to thrive.
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 foundation that pioneers digital approaches to tackle community needs. This has included grant making, in partnership with Do IT Life, and future initiatives incubating new initiatives to support civil society, including the newly launched Charity Hall of Fame.
