JustGiving was started in early 2000 by two women, Zarine Kharas and Anne-Marie Huby, with a simple, but big, vision. They wanted to help break down the barriers to fundraising, and to use the internet to allow people to raise more for the charities they care about. With the help of some visionary investors, they created JustGiving, the UK’s first online fundraising website. They made sure it was quick and easy to use, and 100% secure to donate through. A few charities got on board. Some fundraisers did too. And soon JustGiving processed its very first online charitable donation. The goal was simple: to give you the online tools you need to raise more for your charity – and to help you raise more than you would anywhere else. We’ve grown since then. Here in the UK, over 9,000 charities have joined JustGiving. Over 12 million of you have together raised a staggering £700 million for these charities on our website. JustGiving has also launched offshoots - FirstGiving in the US and JustGiving Japan.
We love what we do. We take real pride in JustGiving. We believe strongly in it, and in everything we do.We work for the best online users, ever. We're constantly in awe of the people and charities raising funds through our website - they do the most amazing and inspiring things. Your ideas count. We always get to voice our opinions. We like to take risks and learn just as much from our failures as we do from our success.Accountability keeps us structured. There's not much bureaucracy here and we're not interested in unnecessary hierarchy. All of the JustGiving team knows what each other does. That focus keeps everyone accountable, responsible, on time and on target. We like change. If something can be done better, we'll always call it out and act as fast as we can to change it. We have fun. We're friends around here. We like going out for lunch and going to the pub. People tend to stay here for a long time, because they like their colleagues as much as their job.
When we recruit, we’re not just looking for talented individuals (although that matters too). We’re looking for talented people who echo our values and truly want to make a difference. In a nutshell, smart, creative and self-motivated people who make things great happen.
