What is Work For Good?
Work for Good' is an online fundraising platform creating a major new channel of charitable funding, by making business-giving easy and good for businesses. Work For Good can help your business design and embed charitable giving pledges into what you do, in smart ways that work for you, to enable you to fund good causes whilst driving your business growth.
The online platform makes it easy for you to build giving into your day to day work – impressing your clients or customers and inspiring your people. 'Work For Good' connect businesses to Charities and take away all the problems (legal, tax, admin etc.) that businesses encounter in the giving process. Participating businesses also have access to a distinctive mark that creates a point of difference and a connection to a movement that is transforming the world of corporate giving.
We will help you shout about the good you do, and you don't have to wait until your business is big enough to donate!
If every small and medium-sized business gave just 1.5% of their profits to small Charities, the results would be huge!

My Mood Stars
Local entrepreneur Wendy White teamed up with Dash as our first 'Work For Good' partner.
We use Wendy's Mood Stars as a tool to help children who have experienced domestic abuse articulate their feelings. Many children are guarded and anxious about expressing their emotions, so these cuddly stars help them relax, feel comfortable and make our sessions fun too!
