Fundraising is the gentle art

of teaching the joy of giving.

Hank Rosso

For charities to continue to do great work, it's essential that we build and maintain the trust of the people that we rely on for funding. That's why at Zen, we place the highest importance on integrity and respect, both to our clients and to your donors.


When we represent your organisation, you can be sure that we will deliver a first class experience to both your existing and potential supporters. We believe that long-term fundraising success lies in connecting people with the joy of giving, not pressuring them into a reluctant donation.

We bring imagination and innovation to the sector, always challenging ourselves to develop new and exciting ways to enhance the experience – and results – of face-to-face fundraising.


We have introduced instant debits through credit cards to face-to-face fundraising in the UK.

This new payment method helps our fundraisers create urgency on the doorstep, inspiring supporters to take immediate action to help your cause. This removes the threat of first debit attrition and delivers the donation to you securely and quickly.

You and your supporters will be reassured that we work with Evergiving, the world’s most trusted software platform for maximising the success of fundraising campaigns. 

Take action!

Done well, face to face fundraising is the most effective way to recruit large volumes of regular givers and increase the public's awareness of your work. Don't leave this critical part of your income generation to chance. Contact us now:
