Create a fundraising webpage in minutes

JG

You can create a fundraising page for absolutely anything. You could get sponsored to run, swim, cycle, get fit, grow a moustache or have your head shaved. The only limit is your imagination.

Baby Lifeline has joined forces with Justgiving making it really easy to raise money: you can create an online fundraising page in minutes to collect donations for any sponsored event or appeal.

Create your own fund raising web page

Fundraising pages are just like paper sponsorship forms, except they’re online, so you don’t have to traipse around collecting cash and cheques. Simply personalise your page with a photo and message and email the web address to all your contacts. Friends, family, work colleagues and anyone else, from anywhere in the world, can then make a donation using your page.

Five tips for successful fundraising with a Justgiving page:

 

1

Personalise your message

The best fundraising pages tell a really good story. Let people know why you’re going to the trouble of raising money, and they’re much more likely to take the time to donate. Explain why you have chosen to support Baby Lifeline, some of your sponsors may not have heard of us so you need to tell them why you are going to the effort of raising funds for us.

 

2

Add photos and video

A personal photo makes your page much more engaging. You can also add Youtube Videos that, along with photos will help to bring your page to life. The more interesting, compelling and imaginative the more likely your supporters are to send your page on to their friends.

 

3

Tell everyone about your page

Before you email your entire address book, ask your closest friends and family to donate first. An empty page can be a bit intimidating, so having a couple of donations on the page should encourage other sponsors. People tend to match the amounts already listed on the page, so if they’re generous ones, all the better! Email your other contacts in groups (e.g. colleagues, running club, friends overseas, etc) personalising your message each time.

 

4

Put a link in your email signature

Add your page’s web address, or one of justgiving’s ‘sponsor me’ badges, to your email signature. That way, every email you send raises awareness of your fundraising and attracts more donations.

 

5

Get a Widget or a badge

You can add an animated justgiving Widget to your website, Blog, Facebook or MySpace page to promote your page.
