Thank you for being an amazing supporter! Here’s some useful tips on how you can maximize your money raised.
Set up your fundraising page
You will receive a link and instructions to set up your online fundraising page using Just Giving. If you’d rather use a paper sponsorship form please request one.
Set yourself a target
Think big. It’s a great way to motivate yourself and encourage your supporters. When you’re close to your target, why not raise the bar? It’ll keep the sponsorship rolling in.
Tell your friends and family what you are doing on social media and send them the link to your online fundraising page. Take your paper form everywhere with you as you never know who you may see and collect donations as you go.
Make a video
An engaging story makes all the difference, and what better way to spread your fundraising message than through video. Make a short video on your phone or video camera about why you’re fundraising and share it on social media. Remember to tag us in @julianhouseuk
Ask your employers
Many employers will match their employees’ fundraising so don’t forget to ask yours. Also adapt your e-mail signature and add a line at the bottom telling people about the event you are doing. Don’t forget to include a link to your online fundraising page!
Contact your local press
Any extra exposure in the local paper or an appeal on your local radio station can really help. Make sure to tell them your fundraising page address so that readers and listeners can find your page and support you.
Saying thank you to your supporters is important and there are many ways you can do so. Say thank you face to face, update the story on your page, send a tweet, update your Facebook status or send emails out to your donors.
