Charity Checkout, a U.K.-based online fundraising platform, raised $1m in funding.
The round was led by Chris Hulatt and Simon Rogerson, founders of Octopus Group with participation from four existing investors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its growth and extend its services to national charities and corporates.
Founded in 2011 by Chester Mojay-Sinclare, CEO, Charity Checkout provides an online fundraising platform for local charities, clubs and societies to optimize their online donation process.
The company, which is now planning to increase its headcount to over 40 and will be investing in its platform, operates in the UK but also has clients in Ireland, Australia, Canada and USA.
