Help Your Great North Run Fundraisers Win a £200 Donation Boost
Each year, thousands of runners use JustGiving for their Great North Run fundraising. We know that our charity partners do a lot to prepare for this epic event, from stewarding fundraisers to rallying your supporters. This year, we wanted to do a little extra to help you on your Great North Run 2024 fundraising journey.
Between 12 February and 31 March 2024, any fundraiser who creates a JustGiving fundraising page for the Great North Run will be entered into a competition to win one of 10 donation prizes worth £200 each!
How It Works
When your charity connects your Campaign Page to the Great North Run 2024 event and shares it with your runners, they can create their own fundraising pages and start raising money for your charity. If their page is created between 12 February and 31 March, they’ll automatically be entered into the competition. It’s really that easy!
Share These Tips With Your Fundraisers
Keeping your fundraisers inspired, engaged, and on track for success doesn’t need to be tricky. Here are some top tips you can share with your Great North Runners to help them meet their fundraising target
s this year.
- Donate to Yourself
Nobody likes to see ‘£0 raised’ on their fundraising page. On average, those who make the first donation to their own page tend to raise up to 58% more than those who do not. A little can go a long way!
- Use all the JustGiving Tools Available
Whether it’s helping your runners craft compelling fundraising stories with Story Enhancer or connecting a growing number of fitness apps to their pages, JustGiving has several tools available to provide a great fundraising experience.
- Spread the Word!
Successful fundraising is all about momentum. Every page share — whether via email, social media, posters, or good ol’ word of mouth — can help your fundraisers reach their goals. Encourage your runners to share their pages online and don’t forget to like, comment on, and reshare their content using your charity’s own communications channels.
