Mary's Meals at The National Gallery

Back to Case Studies

In February 2020, the TapSimple team was proud to support Mary’s Meals at a fantastic fundraising event at The National Gallery.  With over 400 guests in attendance, eighteen brilliant volunteers used TapSimple devices to take donations, pledges, and for the grand auction. The organisers smashed their target and raised over £160,000 towards their goal of providing every child with a daily school meal.  

Features used for effective fundraising at special events like this one:
Gift Aid

Mary’s Meals raised £5,150 extra with the ability to collect Gift Aid.

Give A Little Extra

94% of donors chose the option to cover platform fees, saving the charity over £700.


 Fundraisers can engage with new donors with personalised charity imagery and messaging. For Mary’s Meals, it costs £15.90 to feed a child for a school year. They were able to display this messaging on the phone screen.

Groups feature

This event was organised by a fundraising committee on behalf of the Mary’s Meals. The groups feature allows the charity to take advantage of people wanting to fundraise on their behalf by setting up a group on the charity HQ dashboard. This provides the group with their own dashboard, but with no access to the charity HQ reporting or campaigns.

“TapSimple made fundraising at our event easy, and we were able to almost double our expected goal using the portable devices.”
