Data protection laws are complicated things, and they instruct us to tell you very specific things. Our aim is to do this in a way that conveys how seriously we take our responsibilities and make it all just a bit more user-friendly.
In order to sign up to our Matchmaker for Good™ Network we will ask you to provide your name, email, interests (from the list of 17 Sustainable Development Goals), location and whether you would like to ‘offer’ skills, resources and/or financial support or whether you ‘need’ skills, resources and/or financial support to help your charitable project grow, scale up and fulfil its mission.
This basic information is needed to activate our Matchmaker for Good™ algorithm that connects different individuals on our website based on matching keywords used in their profile. Our overall goal is to bridge the gap between the third sector doing life-changing work in the community and the general public seeking opportunities to volunteer and/or start doing good. In doing so we aim to mobilise good ideas and strategies with a proven positive social or environmental impact, connect people around good causes and spark meaningful collaborations.
