Kru Live, the staffing and entertainment agency, has signed a three-year deal with Givergy, an award-winning fundraising technology company. The agreement will see Kru Live become its staffing partner in the UK. Givergy offers a range of cutting edge platforms to help charities raise more at fundraising events and online.
The company was awarded the contract after a competitive three-way pitch process spanning four months.
As part of the contract, Kru Live will deliver over ten thousand staffing days in partnership with Givergy’s managed event service, supporting over 1,200 annual events, which raise vital funds for charity.
Jonathan Douglas, COO of Givergy, commented: “We managed things in house successfully for a number of years but, our ever-increasing demand by charities has meant that it was time to handover the reigns to staffing specialists that are recognised for a service of excellence.
“This enables our team to get back to the job in hand – helping our charity clients raise more through our technology. We needed to be meticulous in our agency selection process however as having the right staff at our events is paramount; it was clear that Kru Live were the best fit for our brand and most importantly our clients and we are hugely excited by the partnership.”
Givergy’s comprehensive suite of interactive silent auction and pledging technology is said to drive engagement and competitiveness, while championing the spirit of giving generously at all nature of charity events.
The addition of Kru Live will ensure guests at such events will have a seamless experience and onsite support using the technology moving forward.
Sarah-Jane Benham, MD at Kru Live, added: “Early conversations highlighted a clear synergy between our two companies; both ambitious in our outlook and passionate about looking after our people; we are confident our partnership will only strengthen each other’s business’ further.
“As Givergy continues to grow as the leader in their sector, our partnership will also see us providing bespoke entertainment and celebrity auctioneers, including the likes of Jonny Gould and Adger Brown.”
