The company

At Lightful, we believe that those doing the greatest good deserve the best technology.

We’re passionate about making the best technology accessible to charities and nonprofits. Our products and solutions help organisations unleash the power of technology and make the good work they do even greater. Our products and services are designed to simplify the work and amplify the impact of charities and nonprofits. 

We offer three main services to charities and nonprofits; the Lightful Social Platform, the BRIDGE Programme and Lightful Labs. 

The Lightful Social Platform allows organisations to create, schedule and publish content to their social media pages. It is the only social media platform designed specifically for those in the charity sector and was ranked the number 1 for Social Media Management platforms built for non-profits. 

BRIDGE (Building Resilience in Digital through Growth and Engagement) combines a learning syllabus, delivered through a combination of live and recorded sessions and webinars, with the Lightful Social Platform. BRIDGE is supported by foundations and other funders, and offered out to small to medium charities that they support. The use of our social media manager helps participants to save time, learn best practice and collaborate internally more effectively. The syllabus focuses on four key digital foundations - fundamentals, storytelling, fundraising and insights. We take participants through these foundations helping them to improve confidence and competence. The BRIDGE team has worked with organisations like Comic Relief, DCMS and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. We have been running a COVID-19 adapted curriculum based on Response, Recovery and Resilience themes since May this year, with 200 nonprofits from around the world currently enrolled.

Lightful Labs is a digital consultancy that offers customised services to help teams to do more. The Lightful Labs team have worked with amazing organisations like Help Refugees, London’s Air Ambulance and the Rhodes Trust to name a few.
