2024 GoCardless JustGiving Awards: Nominations are Open Now!

Blog Headers (1)

Not all heroes wear capes, and chances are, an incredible fundraiser pops into your mind when you think of the word ‘hero’, right?

Fundraising for a good cause can be rewarding enough, but we know how important it is to spotlight the incredible people that go the extra mile to raise money for your charity.

Well, the time has come to recognise those people for their hard work. And we’re teaming up with our headline sponsor, GoCardless, once again to give you the chance to celebrate in style.

 “JustGiving fundraisers are some of the most amazing people, and hearing their stories makes me feel both inspired and incredibly humbled.

The GoCardless JustGiving Awards are a simple way to say ‘thank you’ to these selfless individuals and celebrate their contributions to the causes that are close to their heart.

If you know an unsung hero who deserves to be recognised, please don’t hesitate — nominate them today.”

Pat Phelan, Managing Director UK&I and Chief Customer Officer at GoCardless

What are you waiting for? Nominate that amazing human who’s used JustGiving to raise money for your charity. You’ve got until the 11th of April, so get your nominations in now.

Like the Grammys, our awards ceremony recognises hard work, drive, and heart. Here’s what to expect on the night itself. 

The GoCardless JustGiving Awards: what to expect

We created the GoCardless JustGiving Awards to celebrate people who are committed to making a difference.

The winning fundraisers will get the shining spotlight they deserve, a huge round of applause and take home a sparkling trophy (which is just the cherry on top). Plus, finalists get the opportunity to raise awareness for your charity’s mission in front of thousands!

If one of your supporters is shortlisted, you and your team will join them for a magical night at the iconic Roundhouse in London. You’ll be showered with live performances, a delicious three course dinner and (of course) inspirational speeches from the deserving winners. It’s truly a night to remember.

 How to write an award-winning nomination

Here are out top tips for writing the best possible nomination:

  • Include as much detail as possible.

Think about your fundraisers story and what makes it special. What inspired them to start fundraising? What does your charity’s mission mean to them? Do they have a personal connection to the cause?

  • Emphasize the impact of their fundraising.

What impact have they made through fundraising? We’re not just talking about how much was raised, but also the impact they’ve had on others.

  • Spread the word.

Use social media to encourage other to nominate your fundraisers for an award. Our social media assets can get you started.
