Who do we help
What Our Clients Say About Us
We have used IFS to support our regular giving and lottery campaigns for around 8 years now. The actual software itself is super easy to use, quick to complete and is built with fundraisers in mind. With the portal, the standardisation across it, makes the system really easy to use. KPI’s are at the forefront and visible within seconds. It’s very accessible for our field managements throughout every day, which is something we really like about it.
IT and Venues Director,
We assessed many solutions when looking for a partner to provide our digital data collection/canvassing solution. The Ideal Fundraising solution stood out for many reasons, their experience within the sector, their knowledge of what works and what doesn’t within field-based communications, and the fact the system did not rely on being online, that our fundraisers and supporters would experience the same level of service from the system, with the same level of data security even when out of signal.
The solution continues to provide us with a completely data secure, easy to navigate scalable solution for our fundraising. Managed through the main portal, we are even able to give our charity clients access to allow them to monitor activity on a real time basis.
As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising providers by volume we can’t recommend Ideal Fundraising enough.
Since 2013 we’ve used IFS to process far in excess of 225,000 new members on behalf of our six charity clients. The system is secure, smooth and user-friendly, and hiccups are non-existent. The live reporting is a really useful feature too! IFS certainly comes highly recommended from us.
The security of personal information is also extremely important to us and having IFS really helps us with this. As soon as a lottery member is acquired, their personal information transfers off the tablet and into the secure Hub. Also, if a PDA tablet is lost or stolen it can be locked down in minutes.
Managing Director of SEC Fundraising,
We have been with IFS for a couple of years now and now have 6 campaigns up and running which are a mixture of lottery and regular giving campaigns. What we love about the system is that the portal is available on the go.
Efficiently run your door-to-door campaigns with our specifically designed module

Ideal Fundraising; The Complete Face To Face Fundraising Solution
Equip your fundraising team with a solution that works at the same speed, anywhere, anytime – regardless of connectivity. Built and supported in the UK by our in-house team, we deliver the training, setup and the ongoing changes as part of our service.
We pride ourselves on delivering a solution for each and all of our clients, taking into account everyone’s particular requirements. That being said, we’ve worked with so many Charities and Agencies that we have a wide variety of settings and options to choose from – simply send us your existing paper mandate or existing digital mandate and we can get you started.
If you’re looking for a consistent, professional answer to your fundraising needs – look no further. From our locked-down, penetration-tested devices to our secure data transfer, detailed logging and GPS reporting – we have the solution to every aspect of your operations needs.
It’s great to see a professional, secure piece of technology used that I can put my trust in – the fundraiser has even shown me how they can’t see anything once my details have been sent – much better than paper!
I really enjoyed the use of their video, it really hit home – the fundraiser said that ‘experiential fundraising’ is the new way of getting people involved – either way, it was great that we didn’t have to wait for it to buffer or load!
When I walked away, I received a text message from the Charity with the Fundraiser’s name, a great touch – I really appreciated that.
Wow, no more paper. Wow, look how fast I can validate addresses and bank details. No more pulled or failed forms!
Now I know the donors I sign up are genuine, this is a massive boost to the morale of the team – let’s hit those targets!
Amazing! No more texting my scores back to head office, no more counting paper forms and keeping track of those. I worked all day without the system being slow or not working – it is great that this does not need a constant mobile-data connection!
I know that the donors being signed up have a very high chance of being genuine. I also know that the checks within the form mean that the fundraisers are disclosing correctly.
With the Reporting Portal I have a live view of where my teams are, what their scores are as well as instant access to the donors they have signed up. I’m safe in the knowledge that any strange behaviour is automatically flagged by the system for my team to review.
One of the most impactful benefits has been the automated data exports into our CRM systems. It used to take 2-6 weeks for our donors to receive the first payment – now it can be as quick as we like!
