Fundraising Tips

1.     Ready for your close up? A legitimate excuse for a selfie!

Fundraisers who upload a profile photo raise 14% more on average than those who don’t.

2.     Tell your story

People will give more if they know why you care. Fundraisers who tell their story raise up to 74% more than those who don’t.

3.     Be the first to donate to your page

By donating to your own page, you’re showing your commitment to your fundraising and setting the benchmark for family and friends who visit your page to donate.

Those who donate to their own page raise over 120% more on average.

4.     Connect your page to Strava

Your supporters will be able to see how hard you’re working and are more likely to make bigger donations.

People who actively share their fitness activity raise on average 40% more than those who don’t.

5.     Share your page and ask people to support you

The number one reason people give is because they were asked. So, what are you waiting for? Share your page via email and social media.

People who share their page within an hour of creating it generally raise 52% more than everyone else.

6.     Update your friends

Been out training or have some news about your fundraising? Post an update to keep your friends interested.

By keeping them updated you are helping to build deeper emotional connections with your supporters which can lead to more donations.

7.     Get in touch

We would love to hear from you! Let us know your story, ask if there's any additional support you'd like from us.

8.     Increase your target

If people think you are close to meeting your target, they might donate less than they intended to.

They may not donate the £30 they were going to if you are only £10 off your goal.

9.     Thank your donors

The simple act of saying thank you is always appreciated especially if you plan on asking them again at a later date.

10.  It’s all over…or is it?

You never know who might still be feeling generous, if you asked them once and they haven’t donated – ask again.

20% of donations come in after the challenge is over.
