Start your fundraising page with a donation of your own
Have you created your fundraising page yet? It’s up to you what fundraising platform you prefer to use, but we’d recommend Raisely. They don’t charge any of the fees that the likes of JustGiving do, which means more of your donations go to where they should.
Not sure how to create your fundraising page? Simply go to our campaign’s microsite and click on the ‘sign up’ button to create your login, set your campaign target, and an introduction that tells the visitors to your fundraising page why you’re campaigning.
Once your page is setup, make sure the first donation on the page is yours, trying to make it as high as possible. This shows your level of commitment to your own cause, which will help to support your case when asking people to donate to your page.
