Introduction: The Dawn of Digital Altruism with Toucan

In an era where technology touches every facet of our lives, what if it could also revolutionise the way we give? Enter Toucan Giving. Powered by a profound vision and commitment, Toucan aspires to make philanthropy not just an act but an ingrained habit.

Who Are Toucan/Toucan Giving?

With an unwavering mission at its heart, Toucan is not merely an app but an ambassador of change. This digital platform strives to make charitable giving an activity filled with joy, resonance, and routine. Their ambition is not just to leverage mobile technology, but to create a ripple effect of kindness and generosity that extends throughout the UK and perhaps, in time, even beyond its borders.

Understanding the Landscape:

The world of charity is vast, complex, and nuanced. While altruism remains its cornerstone, the ways in which people can give have evolved over the decades. In today's digital age, potential donors often seek flexibility, transparency, and a sense of connection to the causes they support. Recognising this shift, Toucan envisioned a platform where users could seamlessly integrate their charitable inclinations into their daily lives, making generosity as natural as sending a text or making a call.

The Challenge:

While Toucan's strength and expertise lay in understanding the charity landscape and the desires of potential donors, they were acutely aware of the need for a strong technological backbone to bring their vision to life. Instead of venturing into the vast realm of tech hiring, with its inherent challenges and costs, they sought a partner whose tech expertise could mirror their passion for change.

The Perfect Partnership:

It was in this pivotal moment that DevAngels emerged as the ideal collaborator. Offering their niche expertise as a "Developer Team for Hire" and "CTO as a Service", DevAngels promised not just technical skills but a shared commitment to Toucan's mission. This union was more than just transactional; it was a fusion of two entities striving for a shared goal – digital philanthropy that truly impacts.

The Development Journey:

The journey of building the app was as much about innovation as it was about understanding. DevAngels delved deep into the essence of what Toucan wanted to convey, ensuring that every feature, every functionality resonated with the app's core ethos. Through rigorous rounds of brainstorming, testing, and refining, what emerged was an app that was not only technologically superior but also deeply connected to the heart of charitable giving.

Realising the Vision:

Open channels of communication were the linchpins of this collaboration. Regular updates, feedback sessions, and strategy meetings ensured that the app was shaping up not just as a tool, but as a beacon for digital philanthropy. This dedication culminated in an app so compelling that Toucan confidently showcased it before potential investors, including the Dragons. Moreover, to ensure a clear roadmap for the future, DevAngels provided a comprehensive specification document, acting as a guiding light for Toucan's onward journey.

Connect with Toucan Giving:


The collaboration between Toucan and DevAngels is a testament to the magic that can be created when vision meets expertise. The Toucan Giving app is more than software; it's a movement. In the fast-paced digital world, it's a reminder that kindness, generosity, and community can be but a click away. Let's join hands and make the world a better place, one digital act of kindness at a time.
