RUN FOR ALL & JUSTGIVING
JustGiving has shared with us some tips to help you get to your fundraising targets!
Share! Share! Share!
The top 5% of fundraisers on JustGiving share their page 15 times on average, so don’t be shy!
It’s easy to share your page on social media, and that’s how you’ll get the most donations to your page.

Personalise your page

Check out the tips on how to choose a great photo, tell your story, and optimise your page so that you can raise as much money as possible. Read more in the guide hereStart fundraising here
Set the Scene
Talk about the work the charity you are supporting does, and how the money you raise will help, and explain why you cared enough to take action to help, be honest and open. This will help connect people to your cause and increase the chances they will donate and share. Don’t forget to set a target for your fundraising too, pages with a target raise 46% more.
Think of interesting ways to get people excited about your fundraising. Set fun targets for your page to surpass with forfeits once it passes each one. For example, ‘If I raise £5,000 I will run the whole course dressed as a dinosaur.” Use your imagination and have fun.
Images help. Fundraisers with photos on their page raise 14% more in total. A perfect excuse for a fun training selfie! Adding lots of images helps your supporters connect with you and your fundraising efforts.
Its not over until its over
20% of donations are received after an event has finished. So even after you have completed your run, don’t let the fundraising stop there. Share how you did, what taking part meant to you, and how it has affected how you feel. You’ll be amazed by how many extra donations you receive.

Don’t neglect all of your options to spread the word. Share on Facebook and Twitter, but also on email, WhatsApp and LinkedIn too. The best practice is to share, and share often. People will want to hear how you are doing and will be ready to help you. Need some examples of updates worth sharing? Why not tell people how your training is going, or talk about how even a small donation can have a big impact for the cause you are supporting.
