JustGiving's Top Ten Tips for setting up a successful fundraising page
1. Add a photo
Fundraisers with pictures on their page raise 14% more per photo. A perfect excuse for a #selfie.
2. Tell your personal story
Why do you care? Tell your story about why you are fundraising.
3. Shoot for a target
Pages with a target raise 46% more. Aim high and tell the world
4. Don't be afraid to share
Sharing on Facebook, social media and WhatsApp raises more. Don’t be afraid, people want to hear about the good things you are doing.
5. Don't forget about email
There are lots of your friends, colleagues and neighbours who are not on social networks but would love to hear about what you are doing.
6. Be creative
Think of interesting ways to get people excited about your fundraising. “If I reach £500 I will take part in the event in fancy dress.
7. Let the charity know
Tell the charity so they can help you spread the word. By letting them know you have set up a fundraising page they may be able to share to their social pages and through email.
8. Update your page
Let supporters know how you are doing by updating your page often, they will enjoy following your progress and you can even do it through our smartphone app.
9. Encourage others
Convince your friends to take part and raise money as well ...as it makes the experience more fun!
10. It's not over 'til it's over
20% of donations come in after an event has ended, so make sure you follow up the event with an update about how you did.
Before supporting a charity, look out for the Fundraising Badge on their fundraising materials.
This is the logo shows that a charity is registered with the Fundraising Regulator and has committed to fundraising in a way that is legal, open, honest and respectful. You can find all registered charities listed in their online Directory.
