360Giving named as one of UK’s most transformative digital organisations

We are delighted to have been recognised as one of the UK’s most transformative digital organisations having been named among 10 ‘Digital Charities of the Year’ in the 2017 Digital Leaders 100 (DL100) List.

The global initiative promotes effective, long-term digital transformation across government and industries.

The independent list recognises 100 people and organisations across the UK who are leading the way in digital transformation in all sectors. Previously, the list has featured industry names such as Martha Lane-Fox, Mike Bracken, Liam Maxwell, Kevin Cunnington and Eileen Burbidge.

The 100 finalists that make up the list will now compete for the public vote in one of 10 categories. You can help us get to the top of the Digital Charity of the Year list by voting for us at digileaders100.com.

This year’s list is made up of individuals and organisations, with 50 from the private sector, 29 from the public sector and 20 from the nonprofit sector.

The DL100 list has a 50/50 gender split, recognising the diversity in digital transformation roles and the leading women across the industry. 360Giving was founded by Fran Perrin who saw the massive potential in creating a digital place where grantmakers and seekers can increase their knowledge of where grants go in the UK and thereby improve the effectiveness of the sector.

Lord Francis Maude of Horsham, Chair of Digital Leaders, said: “The Digital Leaders 100 list 2017 is once again highlighting the progress that has been made in digitally transforming the UK across all sectors. Our Digital Leaders community have pulled out all the stops to let us know about the hidden heroes, quietly getting on with the UK’s digital transformation without themselves seeking recognition. It’s great to see such a strong list from outside London this year reflecting our own National programme and the growing importance that digital transformation has in organisations irrespective of size or sector.”

Robin Knowles, CEO of Digital Leaders, added: “This is the annual list membership that money can’t buy. A truly independent list nominated by our growing community and shortlisted by 10 independent judges before a public vote puts them into order.

Judges for the DL100 shortlist include, Lord Maude of Horsham, Chris Yiu, Director of Uber, Rachel Neaman, CEO of Corsham Institute, and Maggie Philbin, CEO of Teentech.

The final list order and category winners will be announced at the DL100 Awards Dinner at St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel on 22 June 2017.
