About Charis Grants

Charis Grants works with public, private, and voluntary sector organizations to provide crucial support to people experiencing financial hardship. Their online self-service platform, the Charis Shop, allows those in need to access a range of goods and services, from white goods and emergency cash to fuel vouchers, furniture, and more.

By collaborating With Tillo's embedded digital gift card platform, Charis Grants was able to empower their beneficiaries to redeem vouchers across a broad range of leading retailers, brands, and service providers. This significantly widens the choice available to those using the Charis Shop, allowing them to use gift cards across major supermarket brands, high street and online retailers.

Digital gift cards provide the recipient with flexibility, dignity, and autonomy. Rather than providing assistance in kind - which may or may not meet the individual's specific needs - digital gift cards allow beneficiaries to choose exactly what they need, be it groceries, clothing, fuel, or white goods, and to pay for it using a familiar and widely accepted payment alternative.

Powering aid and disbursements with digital gift cards

Digital gift cards are an immediate, secure, and easy-to-use tool. There's no waiting around for physical vouchers to arrive, no concerns about lost or stolen funds, and no need for the recipient to have a bank account.

With digital gift cards, charitable organizations, like Charis Grants, that regularly need to distribute funds to thousands of beneficiaries can do so at the click of a button, eliminating administrative boundaries and making it easier for them to track and monitor the use of funds.

Unlocking new use cases for digital gift cards 

Tillo’s partnership with Charis Grants is more than just a collaboration; it's a commitment to making lives better.

"Hardship should not eliminate the element of choice for households, and this partnership with Tillo is essential to protect not just the physical wellbeing of those who are struggling, but their emotional wellbeing, too." - Ollie Grey

We’re thrilled to be helping Charis Grants extend their support to those in need, offering broader and more versatile choices for their beneficiaries by helping them harness the power of digital gift cards for disbursement.

"The cost of living crisis has brought an increasing number of people, many of whom have never needed help or support before, to the point of acknowledging that need for support and approaching their local organisation. By expanding the range of retail and product options, we can help remove the stigma and encourage households to come forward and accept the help and support they are entitled to.

Our integration with Tillo is a significant milestone in broadening the product, service, and brand choices we can offer to communities and beneficiaries. This will help facilitate our expansion as we focus on helping more vulnerable people in hardship with more creative, broader options.”
