Top fundraising tips on how to get sponsorship, tell your story, boost donations and more!

Reach for the stars

By setting a fundraising target you have something to aim for and focus on. People may donate more to help you reach your goal.

Set up a JustGiving page

It’s the quickest and easiest way to fundraise and the money you raise comes straight to Chestnut Tree House. Set up your page.

Be social 

Use all your social media platforms to let everyone know what you are doing – update them on your progress and keep them in the loop.

Tell your supporters what you’re doing, and what the charity means to you. Make it personal – don’t just ask for donations. When you’ve completed your challenge let everybody know how well you did and don’t forget to say thank you!

Don’t forget to tag us too!

We love seeing your progress, and hearing your stories! We also have over 37k followers across all our platforms, and sometimes share your posts – a quick way of getting your fundraising out there!

Gift Aid it!

If your sponsor is a UK tax payer, tick the gift aid box and we get an extra 25% on top of the donation at no extra cost to you. If you download our sponsor form you can claim Gift Aid easily, and JustGiving will also give your sponsors to Gift Aid their donation.

Match funding?

Many employers offer match funding, where they’ll double what you raise. Check with your employer to see if they offer this, or a similar scheme.

Get creative with your ideas. Make the most of this opportunity to become a fundraising hero!
