AskCharity is a free service designed to help journalists and charities work together. Journalists can use it to find case studies, spokespeople and information from a wide range of charities. Charities can use it to build their media contacts and coverage.
I find case studies, expert comment and ideas for articles through AskCharity - I use it regularly and would miss it enormously if it wasn't there.

Through AskCharity we've secured direct media coverage and worked with journalists to expand ideas for articles and features. It's also helped us make new contacts and build on-going relationships with the media.

AskCharity offers a unique, invaluable and free service to journalists looking for case studies, allowing a quick and easy way to target several outlets at the same time by filling out just one form while also promoting a positive and mutually beneficial relationship between charities and the media in the process.
AskCharity has become one of the most useful PR resources for me in my role at Make-A-Wish Foundation UK. It not only helps us pitch for slots we may not have previously known about, it’s also helped me build up a great media contact list.
