Fundraising online may seem daunting, but it’s really simple once you know what you’re doing. Learn how to set up your fundraising page and promote your event online.
Setting up a JustGiving page is a quick and easy way to let people know you’re raising money. In a world where nearly everyone is online, it’s a perfect complement to the trusty sponsor form.
You can jump straight in and start fundraising within a matter of minutes. Simply visit JustGiving, click on ‘Fundraise for us’ and follow the instructions to set up your fundraising page.
Personalise your page by adding photos and writing a story to tell people why you’re fundraising and inspire them to donate.
Don’t forget to set a fundraising target!
If you’re fundraising for a specific event you may have a minimum sponsorship target. JustGiving allows you to track all your online and offline sponsorship in one place to give you a running total.
Virgin Money Giving is a good alternative to JustGiving and it’s ideal if you want to split the money you raise across multiple charities.
Simply visit our Virgin Money Giving profile and start fundraising today!
Again, don’t forget to add a photo, explain why you’re raising money and set a target.
Facebook Donate is really popular and easy to set up. You just need a Facebook profile.
Simply visit our Facebook fundraisers page, click on ‘Raise money’ and follow the instructions to create your fundraiser.
Simply add a donation sticker to your Insta story, search for and select Chestnut Tree House and change the title of your fundraiser to include your own name so we know you’ve raised the money.
Once you’ve created your fundraising page now it’s time to share your page on social media to get the word out!
Join our Chestnut Champions Facebook group where you can share ideas and inspiration and get tips and advice from other like-minded people. You are also welcome to share your fundraising pages for Chestnut Tree House!
