JustGiving Campaign Pages are the simplest way to bring together all your fundraising for a specific event. 

Once your page is set up, people can then set up their own fundraising pages to help you raise even more. They’ll ask their entire network for help: friends, family, colleagues, and even strangers! 

Whether it’s a big community run, dedicated event for your charity, bake sale, concert, or beyond, every event has the power to make a real impact. 

You can leverage Campaign Pages for any type of event. 

  • Your own signature charity in-person fundraising event 
    These are events charities create and host themselves, where all the money raised goes toward their own cause. 
    Example: Macmillan’s Macmillan Race Day 
  • Virtual fundraising events 
    Virtual events can involve multiple charities or just your own, but the difference is that supporters can participate from anywhere and log their fundraising online! 
    Example: Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand’s Roll1KforMDA 
  • Local events or appeals 
    Local fundraising events or appeals involve raising money for something in the local community. These events may not involve doing an activity, but simply making a donation online (or offline!). 
    Example: Trinity Theatre & Arts Centre’s Save the Trinity Theatre 

The possibilities are endless. Plus, you can customise your page to show your logo, your colours, and your Story! 

How can I receive donations on my Campaign Page? 

  • Direct donations 
    People who want to support you can simply visit your Campaign Page and make an online donation. 
  • Fundraisers 
    People can also set up their own fundraising pages to support your campaign further. These passionate supporters leverage their own network and ask for donations on your behalf. This can turn your campaign into a big collective goal (and a friendly competition of who can raise the most)! 
  • Regular giving 
    New! Now supporters can set up recurring donations for your campaign or a connected fundraising page. This means they can choose to automatically donate a chosen amount via direct debit each month. Learn more about Regular Giving on Campaign Pages and Fundraising Pages. 

The fundraising total on your page accounts for all the above, showing how much everyone has raised together, as one big team. 

Here’s a few more examples of charity event fundraising pages on JustGiving.
