Beacon has been transformational for our charity in every way

We’re exploring opportunities we just couldn’t see before because we were so busy with data handling and manual stuff that we shouldn’t have needed to do at all. We’re now thinking about projects we wouldn’t have been able to dream about with our old CRM.

How Beacon engaged with us is really, really top level. It’s great technology with old school customer service. There hasn't been a single bad experience of any of our users.

A friend called me after setting up a regular donation to tell me they'd received the most beautifully written email. They said, 'Gosh, you've really got your team well drilled', which was amazing because we hadn't really done anything!

Every time we speak with Beacon’s support team we are glad we chose Beacon rather than the alternative.

We hadn't collected Gift Aid in a really long time. It was so hard to do with the tools we had, and we didn’t feel like we could trust our data. Beacon categorises eligible payments and tracks which ones we haven’t claimed, which let us claim over £12,000 in backdated Gift Aid, so Beacon has paid for itself out of the gate.

Is Beacon right for my charity?
