Maximising Your Fundraising

Just Giving Guide

Just giving has lots of functionality that can boost your fundraising – make sure you are making the most of what they have to offer:

Have you added a personal photo?

Fundraisers who add a profile picture tend to raise 15% more.

Write an engaging story

Tell people what you are doing and your motivation for doing it. Even add a small section on what the charity does e.g:

"The Lily Foundation has three aims: To fund research to improve diagnosis and increase treatment options for Mitochondrial Diease, and ultimately find a cure. To raise much needed awareness of these conditions both in the general population and the medical community. To support families affected by this condition."

Set a fundraising target

Target setters raise up to 46% more. It’s good to have a goal and people will want to help you beat it. Remember be it £50 or £5000 every single penny will make a difference.

Always add updates 

Regular updates of your training or progress will keep things active and fresh and give you a great reason to continue to share your page on social media.

Add a text to donate number

You can through the edit functionality of your page create your own text donate number. It’s easy to do and easy to share. People like to be able to do this as it’s so quick and easy and they can still pick how much want to donate.

Join a fundraising team

There is always strength in numbers - pages that are part of a team raise an average of 10% more. If you know you are part of a wider team with the same motivation why not set up a team page where all you efforts can be seen in one place.

Add any money you've raised offline

Add any cash or cheque donations you’ve collected so everyone can see the total amount you’ve raised. Just go onto your page, select edit and on the right hand side you will be able to add the total of your offline donations. Please remember if you send us cheques or transfer money directly into our account always tell us if it is part of a fundraising campaign so we can add it to your total at our end too.

Say thank you!

Either directly to individuals or as a whole when you have finished by updating your page. Share a photo of your achievement via social media and tell all your supporters how amazing they are for helping you, to help us to find a cure.
