About Dovetail


Dovetail aims to create brilliant fit between charities and digital agencies. We believe that by providing standardised, useful information, charities will make a better decision about who to work with, leading to greater impact.


Dovetail builds on research exploring charity and agency relationships. We heard that an elusive quality described as ‘fit’ is key. See the updates doc for how Dovetail has evolved. If you have a question, feedback, or request, please email Noam.
