Here at Donate The Change we are passionate about making a positive impact on society. Our initial program will make donating to charity as easy and cost effective as possible. We have been working hard throughout our Beta programme to learn and improve our service to ensure we create something that works for charities and their supporters. We have received some great feedback from users and charities about Donate The Change and we are excited to announce that we have been selected as a finalist in the Thames Valley Tech Awards 2018 in the Tech Start- Up Business category, sponsored by ConnectTVT.

Often called the UK’s Silicon Valley, the Thames Valley region has a strong technological reputation which has contributed significantly to the area’s economy for over 20 years. Conveniently located on the M4 corridor it homes key international tech companies such as CA Technologies, Cisco, Huawei, Fijitsu, Microsoft and Oracle. Furthermore the region supports tech start-ups to scale ‘as the digital revolution takes hold’.

About Connect TVT : Tech Start-Up Award Sponsor
ConnectTVT was launched in June 2014 to “put the Thames Valley back on the tech and digital cluster maps” that we had disappeared from. Being rich in established, mature tech-based businesses, global giants have been critical to the region’s economy but had also made us become a victim of our own success. We had taken our eye off the ball about we how we were perceived; at a national level we were “off the radar”. The vision for ConnectTVT was to give an amplified voice to the innovative companies in the Thames Valley through a rich events programme.
