Jonathan is an experienced Healthcare COO and Charity CEO. Jonathan says ” for many people charity is not the whole answer, but it can be the beginning of journey of support, that is available nowhere else”
Jonathan founded charity checkup after seeing that there were many charities who were rightly focussed on their aims and objectives but needed help with Regulation, Governance, Values and behaviours, Senior Management, IT, Branding Fundraising & Events
amongst others. “I wanted to offer charities the opportunity to get support and advice to reach their aims and objectives. With my knowledge as a CEO and my connections I knew we could offer Charities a service that was value for money, in addition I wanted to promote to larger companies the value to them and their business of support for local and community charities”.
90% of Uk charities turn over £500,000 or less. Most of these are local community charities who needs support, volunteers and donations to carry on with their amazing work. In a recent TSB survey 50 % of respondents said they were willing to give but didn’t know the name of a local charity. For the SME charities with incomes above 500k times are just as tough and the government is encouraging mergers, mergers that are often challenging to manage where commercial experience is not a strong point. Charitycheckup is here to bring both commercial and charitable experience to support charities of all sizes, to bring leadership and marketing skills, to enable charity to take advantage of digital, to help them engage with corporate interest and to build sets of core values and behaviours that can be the foundation for success.
