ClearCourse, a digital technology group has acquired fundraising solutions business instaGiv for an undisclosed sum.

Established in 2010, instaGiv offers a range of mobile and digital fundraising solutions. Its core focus is SMS donations, and has developed a range of products and services for fundraising, donor engagement and recruitment.

The company works with over 300 UK-registered charities, including Macmillan Cancer Support, Tearfund and Amnesty international, to help facilitate their mobile fundraising.

The latest acquisition is ClearCourse’s eitgth since it was founded in 2018.

ClearCourse said its move into donations and fundraising will allow it to offer an extended range of products and services to its existing companies’ clients, many of which have fundraising requirements.

It will support the continued development of instaGiv through the provision of operational and financial resource as well as commercial and operational synergies in return.

Gerry Gualtieri, CEO of ClearCourse said the acquisition will enhance the group’s offering.

“The strategic acquisition will also allow our existing companies to target the fundraising and charity sector with a combined complementary solution incorporating instGiv’s capabilities.”

Michael Carlin, Managing Director and Founder of instaGiv, said the move was an exciting step in instaGiv’s development.

“The resources we will have access to as part of the Partnership, as well as the opportunities for operational and commercial synergies with ClearCourse’s other companies, will help us deliver on this commitment,” he said.

“We look forward to working with Gerry and the team as we take our business into the next chapter.”
