Create your own fundraising page

On our website, you can set up your own fundraising page so that your friends, colleagues and family can support you and your event, no matter where they are. 

We can even promote your fundraising event on this site and give you the advice you need to put together a press release – simply tell us about your idea.

Our top 5 fundraising tips

1. Share the load

Planning an event should be fun – not a chore. So get friends, family and work colleagues involved. They will all have stacks of ideas and it will be more enjoyable when it isn't all resting on your shoulders.

2. Tie-up legalities

Do you know the legalities around your idea? If not, it’s worth checking you’re compliant. To find out, try www.how2fundraise.org or contact us  - our fundraising team will be happy to help.

3. Check your dates

To guarantee that people are free to come along, double check that your fundraising event doesn’t clash with important dates, such as school breaks or key holidays.

4. Cut your costs

We can share with you tips and tricks for keeping your budget lean when running a fundraising event. We’ll also give you insights on how much certain types of events cost – just ask.

5. Give lots of notice

Promote your fundraising event with as much notice as possible, and keep promoting right up until the event day itself. Use all promotion options available, including social media to spread the word. Take a look at our online resources for more details. Want to know more? We can help
