5 quick ways to get your fundraising off to a flying start!


Start fundraising

Step 1

Share your page on social media

Getting your page in front of as many people as possible is key to bringing in those all-important donations.

Sharing your page at certain times of the day, such as 9 am, lunchtime, 8 pm, and 10:30 pm can lead to more donations.

Step 2

Email your contacts

Start with your closest friends and family. Their donations will encourage others to donate.

This group also tends to donate higher amounts which looks great on your page and people also tend to match the amounts already given.

Step 3

Make regular updates

These keep your page looking fresh and give you plenty of opportunities to share it.

We’ve found that you could raise an average of 6% more for every update you make!

Step 4

Explain how it will help

Check out your charity’s website for information on how the donations you receive will help them.

Eg. What could a £10 donation provide? What would a £25 donation mean to the charity?

Step 5

Promote your page offline

Use a QR code generator to add a QR code to posters and flyers. Why not hold a bake sale for your friends or colleagues?
