Explaining the Our Community Giving Centre

From the January 5 subscriber email:

Crikey subscribers who have donated through Oxfam will have noticed it is processed through the Our Community Giving Centre. The credit card statement says “Our Community West Melbourne”. So what and who is Our Community? Founder Dennis Moriarty explains how the Giving Centre works:

When we established the Australian Giving Centre over four years ago, we set it up as part of our own giving back program of support. Over 500 community groups now use the Centre – big, small, and in between and in all states and territories of Australia.

We also did it so it would democratise some of the giving – so it brings small and medium sized community groups sitting beside the big – only the top 20 organisations within Australia can afford a fully ecommerce enabled site – and what we do is collect all the donor details, issue receipts, put the details into a database format so they can use it in the future and provide a whole online solution along with a lot of back end support – all totally free of charge.

It has already democratised some giving in Australia as donors come in to donate for one of the bigs or smalls and suddenly see a whole range of groups they have never heard of before collecting for great causes – we can see from the results of tracking the donations that often people are giving to three or four groups when they come to the site. Staff have coined the phrase “Trawling Donor” – signifying a scattering of their donations.

We also wanted to stop the mentality of just giving money for corporates and individuals – when you look at the home page of the Giving Centre – you can donate money, time, computers, blood, organs, furniture, clothes, mobile phones etc.

Already more than $3 million has been given online for tsunami relief. We expect that to possibly hit $10 million by the end of the month and today we have launched a few new features on the Giving Centre.

(1) a total list of groups you can donate to online using the centre so it is a one stop shop for all appeals.

(2) a Tsunami ScamWatch featuring the scams that you need to watch out for.

(3) A Business and Local Government – Making a Difference Link – showing all the ways people can help – from giving blankets to Rotary, to Volunteering through Aust Volunteers International etc. A few pages of key information – Local Government through the Municipal Assoc of Victoria and Aust Local Govt Assoc are doing an Australian first in co-ordinating a series of efforts. We work closely with local government as we believe they are the true reality of what is happening in local communities. It will also feature what innovative and great ways business and local government are working on appeal projects.

(4) Icons for each business and local government to link to the Giving Centre pages where they can communicate how anyone can make a difference.

Finally, I have to say that Westpac has been an extraordinary partner in the Giving Centre – they are helping to promote it but most importantly they are working on finding a way to offset/waive the credit card and bank fees.
