Supporting a Good Cause

Like us here at Melbourne, many of you raise money for causes you are passionate about. However did you know that when you use websites like Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving to fundraise, a percentage of your donations actually go to pay the fees for the service? Well, one of our customers aims to change all that.

Make a Donation is a unique fundraising website which aims to change the way charitable giving is paid for in the UK. It enables totally fee-free giving.

David Finch, the CEO of Make a Donation, says, “Ours is the only site in the UK where every penny donated goes to the charity it is intended for. Fee-free giving is the future for charitable giving.”

Melbourne has worked with David and his team to ensure that the Make a Donation website has maximum uptime; visitors to it have the fastest user experience; and it is robust enough to handle large volumes of donors. We’ve done this by providing a solution that includes Galera database servers which utilise our SAN-backed UltraVM public cloud.
