People raise more through online fundraising pages than any other method!
Creating your own page is quick and easy and most importantly, your donations are safely transferred to Children’s Heart Surgery Fund at regular intervals. We recommend Virgin Money Giving and JustGiving.
Try our tips below to get the most out of your page!
Ask people close to you to make the first donation. People will look to see how much other people have sponsored you, and donate a similar amount.
People will be much more interested in your fundraising if they know your story. Don’t be afraid to share your unique experience and the reasons behind choosing to fundraise.
Did you know? Fundraisers who add photos raise up to 35% more than those who don’t!
People who set a target on their page raise up to 40% more than those who don’t.
If you are getting close to reaching your target, think about increasing it as supporters are less likely to donate if they think you have already reached your goal.
Use every opportunity you have to advertise your page on work newsletters, magazines and your email signature.
Find out if you can get matched funding from your workplace. Some employers will even double your fundraising total!
Update your Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter pages with details of your fundraising and how people can donate.
Every share of your online page is worth an average of £5 in donations!
Around 20% of your donations will come in after you have completed your event so don’t forget to keep fundraising after you have crossed the finish line.
It’s a good opportunity to update your family and friends as people who haven’t sponsored you already might be persuaded when they see how much effort you put in!
