Charity of the Year

We are passionate about providing digital support to remarkable charities, to enable them to increase their brand awareness, drive donations and so much more! It might just even be the team’s favourite work to do. However, we understand not all charities have the budget to spend on digital projects as funding is usually allocated to service delivery.

Now, that’s where our Charity of the Year scheme comes in! Our initiative aims to support more charities and help them reach their digital capabilities to drive meaningful results. Each year we select one charity to partner with, who will receive ongoing digital support and access to the team’s technical knowledge over the course of our one year partnership.

We were pleased to support the team at Martlet’s Hospice as our chosen Charity of the Year for 2023. The Atelier team is in the process of completing an innovative information hub for them which will host a range of useful content for their patients and carers to help ease the pressure faced by their helpline.

Who can apply? ❤️

We are inviting charities across the South to apply for our Charity of the Year scheme to be in with a chance of winning a digital support package worth £5,000. Our scheme is open to all charities, as long as you meet the following requirements:

  • Have a registered charity number with the Charity Commission
  • Have an idea for a project you would like to undertake with the funding
  • Be headquartered or at least have an office in the South (the scheme is open from Bristol, across to Brighton and as far North as South London).

What will my charity receive?

We want to support our chosen charity in the very best possible way. Therefore, we are giving you complete flexibility on deciding how to spend £5,000 on a digital project!

That’s right, we are giving you the chance to win £5,000 to spend on a project of your choosing because we understand different charities may have varying goals and aspirations. For example, you may need our help with a digital campaign to promote on of your charity’s upcoming initiatives, or you might want some help producing some digital assets to explain how your service works.

That’s not it though, we are also giving the lucky winning charity access to exclusive benefits.
