Fundzzle was founded in 2018 by Catherine White and Michael Brown. Based in London, our mission is to help people in the UK gather more meaningfully through charitable and environmentally friendly get-togethers.
Our main goal was to create a private invitation platform that encourages charitable and eco-friendly giving. As Fundzzle can be used for any occasion, users can share the joy of supporting good causes and protecting the environment together.
We also wanted to make doing good easier. That’s why we have simplified the party planning process with RSVP tracking, group gift collections and card signing. The Fundzzle ethos is all about supporting good causes whilst having a good time, and we are so excited to share our new platform with you.

A Note From Catherine
“The idea for Fundzzle came from the joy (but mostly dread) I experience with gift-giving, particularly for children’s birthday parties. Like most parents, I worry about getting “too much” and the environmental impact of these mostly plastic presents. As a guest to any gift-giving occasion, I always have the “what gift to give” dilemma and struggle to find that perfect present that is within my budget, knowing the recipients just really want one great practical gift, an experience or a donation to a charity.
Inspired by my children, who want to help those in need and protect the environment, the concept to contribute towards one great group gift, a charity or both was conceived. This would eliminate the potential for gifts and wrapping ending up in a landfill. It also makes charitable giving that much easier - imagine the good we can do if we donated to a charity every time we got together for a birthday, picnic or dinner party!
Along with my co-founder and software engineer Michael, we created a list of features and pulled them together piece by piece, akin to assembling a jigsaw puzzle, to create Fundzzle: fun + fundraise + puzzle=Fundzzle (get it?).
We’re so excited to see the Fundzzle Events you create and the amazing work our charity partners will be able to do with your donations and support.“
