Stocks in this article: ACTV

"ACTIVE Network and JustGiving's tool has been very beneficial for the Brighton Marathon, which has ambitious fundraising goals," said Tom Naylor, Event Director for Brighton Marathon. "We're already seeing a considerable increase in the number of fundraising pages created compared to last year."

ACTIVE Network is one of the world's leading providers of cloud based activity and participant managementâ„¢ solutions for event and activity organisers. "We believe that by managing their events online, charities, companies and event managers can save significant time and boost fundraising," said Sejal Pietrzak, SVP International at ACTIVE Network.  "With JustGiving, we will create a streamlined way for charities to bring together event registration and fundraising, while eliminating the need for any up-front investment on their part."

Notes to Editors

1. According to JustGiving events data, the number of annual large fundraising events registered has risen from 238 in 2007 to 1,650 in 2011. This is a little under 7-fold rise.

2. Participation was gauged through the tracking of creation of individual fundraising pages associated with such large fundraising events (2007-2011) on JustGiving. Across all events, participation had doubled. By differing event types the participation was as follows: Running (x1.5), cycling (x2.5), swimming (x3), treks (x2) and walks (x2.8).

3. According to a survey of JustGiving charity members, 63% of large charities said they managed their events online.
