How to set-up your fundraising page
Make a difference today in 5 easy steps
Let us help to get your fundraising started. The first step is to decide who you would like to fundraise for. If you’re not sure, use our search tool. If your charity or good cause is not listed, please email us.
Once you’ve chosen a cause you care about, we’ll ask you to register for an account. By the way you can fundraise for more than one cause at the same time and split funds.
Login to your account and decide what activity you’d like to undertake. If you just want to donate or set-up a regular donation that’s fine too.
Explore and experiment with your account. Once you decided what you’d like to do, follow the online instructions.
Enter a short description of what you’re doing to raise money – whether you’re organising or joining in a big event, doing your own thing or running a raffle – and the date or deadline you’re doing this by.
You can support multiple charities, embed a Twitter feed, YouTube video or Flickr photos in your fundraising page. Your activities will be posted to your wall, which you can share with friends & family.
Keep an eye on your wall. See who’s donating and continue to proactively promote your activities. Unless you spread the word, without visitors to your pages, you won’t receive any donations.
Shout about it!
Make your page as attractive, add pictures and tell your personal story. Don’t be afraid to share using social media, email etc. Be sure to thank donors too.
Let the charity know
It’s good practice to tell your chosen charity about your plans. They may be able to support you by sharing on their website or via social media.
Already mentioned above, we would recommend you regularly check and update your wall. Make it fun.
