Our Fundraising Tips
- Start a Just Giving page and share it on social media
- Get friends and family to spread the word about your fundraising too – they’ll be keen to help you get more sponsors.
- Use e-mail, pigeon holes and internal mail to tell them what you’re doing. Don’t forget to ask your employers - some companies will match the donations you raise. This is tax efficient for them and a great way of doubling what you raise.
- Ask people to sponsor you on their pay day. This is the best time to ask for a donation. Hold a Fundraising Event at work such as a raffle or coffee morning.
- Don’t forget your donations can be increased by asking people to Gift Aid their donations. You can claim an extra 28p for every eligible £1.00 donated.
- Set yourself small weekly fundraising targets rather than thinking about a daunting total target.
- Carry your sponsorship form and a pen with you everywhere you go.
- Set yourself a target. Tell everyone how much you hope to raise. They will be keen to help you reach your goal.
- Ask close friends and family to donate first as other people may then match their generosity.
- Always start your form with your best sponsors - this sets the trend. A £5 or £10 donation is a good prompt for following donors.
