Follow the below steps to make your page stand out.

 

Include a summary

Grab people’s attention by adding your reasons for taking part in the event to the top of your page. It’s the first thing your visitors will read, and reports show that you could raise an extra 10% in donations.

 

Share why you’re taking part

Regardless of your reason for fundraising for St Basils, share your story on your page! People are more likely to make a donation if they know why the cause is important to you.

 

Upload a photo

Upload a photo of yourself as your profile picture and while you prepare for your fundraiser, keep your page updated with new photos at least once a week to show your progress.

 

Set a fundraising goal

Share your target so people can help you reach your goal. If you reach your target, keep pushing for any extra donations!

 

Include your offline total 

Don’t forget to add your offline fundraising donations to your total. It will help keep everyone updated on how well your fundraising journey is going. Email: fundraising@stbasils.org.uk to receive your personalised sponsorship form!

 

Keep everyone updated

Don’t forget to post regular updates about your fundraising. It encourages people to re-visit your page, and could even get them to share your cause with their friends (or donate again!)

 

Share your page

Once you’re happy with your JustGiving page, share it by email and on your social media channels. Remember to share it again when you update it. We recommend sending it directly to friends and family too, perhaps on WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger.

 

Make your fundraising go further with Gift Aid

Ask your sponsors to Gift Aid their donation if they are UK tax payers. This means that we receive an extra 25p for every £1 donated and it doesn’t cost you or them anything extra.
