As a non-profit company and a registered charity, 360Giving is governed by a Board of Directors who are also the charity’s trustees:

Alice Casey is a Senior Development Manager at Nesta where she leads on a portfolio of work looking at how the web is transforming communities and civic life.

Geoff Chapman has worked at senior level in a number of financial information and trading companies, including Director of News Products at Reuters, Chief Information Officer at Tullett Prebon and Chief Operating Officer at City Index Ltd. He is now an investor in a number of early stage businesses.
