How to set up a Fundraising Page

Your Personal Pharmacist Support Fundraising Page

Whether you’re taking part in one of our Charity Challenges or organising a fundraising event, setting up your Pharmacist Support fundraising page is easy and should be one of the first things you do.  Your friends and family will be able to visit your page and make a donation online.  They will be able to leave messages of encouragement and view any training updates or progress. This money will come straight to Pharmacist Support and be added to your fundraising total, making the process nice and easy for you, your friends and for Pharmacist Support. Plus JustGiving will claim any relevant Gift Aid on our behalf.

Create your Fundraising Page

Include a summary

Grab people’s attention by adding your reasons why you are fundraising for Pharmacist Support at the top of your page. It’s the first thing your visitors will read, and research shows that personalising it in this way could help you raise an extra 9% in donations.

Share why you’re taking part

Regardless of your reason for fundraising for Pharmacist Support, 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

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.

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.

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. Why not download extra Sponsorship forms and share them with your friends, family, and colleagues?

Keep everyone updated

Don’t forget to post regular updates about your fundraising. It encourages people to re-visit your page, and could even encourage them to share your cause with their friends.

Promote your page

Once you’re happy with your JustGiving page, promote it.  Use word of mouth, promote on posters or flyers, share by email and on your social media channels.   Like our Facebook page and post any updates, and don’t forget to tag @pharmasupport on Twitter and remember to share it again when you update it. You can even update your social media profile picture to let everyone know you’re fundraising for Pharmacist Support.

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%. You could also share via their Facebook or LinkedIn pages.

Make your fundraising go further with Gift Aid

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 them anything extra.

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!
