Micro philanthropy platform, aptly named Little Phil, has moved their headquarters to Cohort Innovation Space as the tech scale-up gears up to expand operations and revitalise the Corporate Social Responsibility space.
The move comes as the team takes the next step on their journey of bettering fundraising by democratising philanthropy and utilising emerging technology to make real-world impact from your smartphone like it were in person.
“Charitable giving is broken, and we’re fixing it,” says Craig Gillam, joint founder of Little Phil. “It’s not the charities fault, but the industry has failed to keep up with the latest technologic and social trends and activate the next generation of donors,” Craig added further.
With a new round of funding and the recent recipient of Advance Queensland’s Ignite Ideas Fund, Little Phil is moving from strength to strength amidst the anticipation of their new platform addition, Company Giving.
Adding to their impact ecosystem, Little Phil launches Company Giving —a positive spin on the outdated, salary sacrificed, workplace giving model. Companies retain the charitable tax benefits, and employees support the causes they care about, creating better company culture, team retention and employee satisfaction. Not to mention the continual monetary support to the non-profit sector that relies on frequent, ongoing donations to carry out their mission.
The cost of employee turnover in Australia, according to PwC, is estimated to be $3.8 billion in lost productivity every year.
With the rise of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) along with the importance of employee retention and company culture, Company Giving on Little Phil is the perfect plug and play solution for small to medium enterprises with custom solutions available for larger corporations. Now companies can publicly display their collective social impact to attract and retain employees, customers, investors and the general public.
Companies can learn more about Company Giving on Little Phil by visiting littlephil.org/csr, and employees can nominate their workplace, which will put them in the draw to win 1 of 10 x $80 Giving Cards to create more Little Phil Good Moments. There is also a 3-month free trial available for all companies of any size wanting to give it a go, with no commitments or lock-in contracts; only pay the giving credits for your team.
Little Phil looks forward to impacting the innovation space and promoting Corporate Social Responsibility amongst the collective Cohort.
