An exciting new chapter for the Localgiving Foundation

  • On Thursday 20th July, Marcelle Speller, the founder and chair of the Localgiving Foundation, stepped down after 9 years’ service.

    We are grateful to Marcelle for her incredible vision in setting up Localgiving, the only fundraising platform dedicated to supporting local charities and community groups in the UK, and for her unceasing passion for the local charity sector.

    The Foundation has appointed Tom Latchford as the new chair. Tom has helped raise tens of millions of pounds for charities online as founder of Raising IT, which is the UK market leader for websites and fundraising tools for the third sector. He will be bringing his experience, passion and philanthropic pedigree to help more local charities grow.

    We are excited about this new chapter. We will continue to provide our services and programmes including match fund campaigns, regional development programmes and advocacy work.

    Looking forward, Localgiving and Raising IT will work closely together to create new, high quality products and services for our members.

    Should you have any questions please get in touch with the Localgiving help desk who will be glad to help.
