The modern database for nonprofits

Easy to use. Cloud based. Flexible enough for anything.

We're building technology for good

At Beacon we're a team of people who are great at building tech. We've worked directly with some of the most forward thinking Silicon Valley startups in the world - companies like Asana, Snapchat, and Stripe.

But we wanted to do more. So we quit our jobs, and set out on a mission to build the best nonprofit database in the world.

The database for storing everything in one secure place


Donors, volunteers, fundraisers and anyone else you interact with


Single and recurring donations, from any donation channel


All events you're running, and everyone who's attending them


All grants you've applied for or won, and the associated trusts or foundations


Bring together information on the marketing campaigns you're running


Keep track of larger gifts and manage relationships with the people involved

The database that does work for you

Gift Aid

Automatic processing, eligibility checks and one-click submission to HMRC

Data imports

Works nicely with the other systems you use every day

Donation processing

Take single and recurring donations via card, direct debit, and Apple Pay


Collect signups and event registrations online with mobile-friendly forms


Your database stays clean and free of pesky duplicate data


Store data on consent, preferences, and other GDPR requirements

"With Beacon, we’ve simplified our entire process for handling donations. Beacon automates everything - from taking donations online and acknowledging donors right through to our Gift Aid submissions. It’s easily saving us 20 hours every single week."
