1 minute read
Church Army UK has signed onto Activistic’s (ASX:ACU) Ralli app, providing a pathway for other faith based giving organisations to join the micro-donations platform provider.
Church Army UK is a mission-focused community of people. Its President is the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, while the patron is none other than Queen Elizabeth herself.
Through its Ralli app Activistic hopes to add further to the already impressive contributions received by Church Army UK, which has raised more than $8.715 million in FY2015.
Church Army has reach across the globe and is made up of 11 independent church army societies in the UK, Australia, Barbados, Canada, Denmark, East Africa, Jamaica, Malawi, New Zealand, USA, Ireland and Vanuatu.
These societies have reach into 20 countries in total.
Activistic is working with Church Army to create a white label app that will place the organisation as a worldwide charity.
“The addition of Church Army UK to our Ralli app is a significant milestone as it not only adds to the credibility and noteworthy charities on the app itself, but represents our first foray into faith based giving,” said Executive Chairman Nigel Lee.
“This vertical is very significant for us to enter into as it represented over US$100 billion donations in the US alone in 2014.”
A soft launch of the Ralli app is happening later this month with more than 80 charities already on board.
Church Army UK is the sixth vertical of faith-based giving to join the Ralli app.
