In March 2015 Bite The Ballot was officially registered as a charity. In 2017, as the charitable space became even more congested with organisations reliant on grants and foundations, Michael Sani Co-Founder and CEO actively restructured the company with the support of Ashoka, to prevent BTB from competing for funding with organisations it would rather be collaborating with.
BTB is composed of three companies, BTB Group Limited, BTB Education Limited and BTB Digital Limited. The aim of the Group is to promote and advance the education and political engagement of young citizens in the United Kingdom and across global communities.
To safeguard the charity, it was written within the articles of BTB Digital that profits raised will support the charity. The current structure is similar to that of the Big Issue, as BTB has intra-company work agreements designed by Hogan Lovells and signed off by the current board.
In terms of governance - the charity has a board of six trustees and the commercial company has a single non-executive director at present.
