Don’t put all your eggs in one basket marked “events”. JustGiving does much more than help raise money for organised charity runs, swims and cycles, and so do your supporters.
Fundraisers who ask for charity donations instead of wedding gifts raised an average of £918 (including Gift Aid) last year, compared to an average of £326 on fundraising pages for running events.
Birthday pages attract average donations of £595, and pages created in memory of a loved one raise an average of £922 for a relevant cause.
Some of our biggest success stories come from creative fundraising in the community. From beard growing to bathing in baked beans, it’s often the imaginative fundraising ideas which attract more interest and more money.
