Set up a Fundraising Page in 9 simple steps

Setting up a Pharmacist Support fundraising page is easy and should be one of the first things you do.

Once you have set up a fundraising page, your friends and family will be able to leave messages of encouragement, view any training updates and make donations to you. This money will go straight to Pharmacist Support and be added to your fundraising total.

1. Create your Fundraising Page

Set up your JustGiving page and follow the easy on screen instructions. If your sponsors are UK tax payers, ask them to consider Gift Aiding their donation. This means that we receive an extra 25p for every £1 donated and it doesn’t cost you or your sponsors anything extra.

2. Explain why you’re fundraising for us

It’s the first thing your visitors will read, and research shows that personalising your fundraising page in this way could help you raise an extra 9% in donations. People are more likely to make a donation if they know why the cause is important to you.

3. Upload a photo

Fundraisers with pictures on their page often raise 14% more for each picture they share. Keep your page updated with new photos of you preparing for your event/activity and remember to post pics from the day when it’s all over.

4. Set a fundraising goal

Did you know that JustGiving pages with a target raise up to 46% more sponsorship than pages without one? Share your target so people can help you reach your goal.

5. Include your offline total

Adding your offline fundraising donations will keep everyone updated with your fundraising journey. You can download extra Sponsorship forms and share them with your friends, family, and colleagues too.

6. Keep everyone updated

Posting regular updates encourages people to re-visit your page, and could even encourage them to share your cause with their friends.

7. Promote your page

Once you’re happy with your JustGiving page, promote it. Download our TEAMGreen resources. Don’t underestimate the power of word of mouth and remember to like our Facebook page and tag us in your fundraising updates.

8. Collaborate with your workplace

Does your office have a JustGiving company profile? If so, linking up with them has the potential to boost your donations by up to 20%.

9. Thank people

Make sure you thank everyone who sponsors you. If you do it through social media it will act as a reminder to anyone who hasn’t sponsored you yet!
