Now that you have a great idea, you need to plan your event or challenge carefully. Don’t forget to let us know that you are fundraising – we love to hear stories from our supporters.

Your Fundraising Guide

We've put together a fundraising guide full of ideas and tips.

Step One: Set some goals.

Once you know how you’re going to raise money, it’s important to think about how much you want to raise. Remember to make sure it’s at least double what the event or challenge will cost.

Make sure your fundraising goal is achievable for you and decide if you want to do it by yourself or as a group. How many people do you think will attend or sponsor you?

Step Two: Plan the details.

Pick a date for your challenge – make sure you give yourself enough time to raise money and train if you have to. Will it be a one-day event? Will it be over a time frame?

Get the supplies you’ll need for your challenge – do you need ingredients, raffle tickets, prizes?

Will you need helpers? Make sure you give them plenty of advance warning. You can hold regular meetings to make sure everyone knows what they’re doing and when.

Step Three: Create your fundraising page

Creating a fundraising page on Just Giving will make it easy for your friends and family to sponsor your challenge online. If you need a hand just email us at

Step Four: Get organised.

Get your friends involved in this if you are doing it as a team.

Decide if you are going to your event live on your social media pages and learn how to do it if you don’t already know!

Step Five: Spread the word and start fundraising!

  • Make posters and put them up around your community if you can.
  • Get local businesses to support you.
  • Share the link to your fundraising page on social media. Drum up interest in what you’re doing – tell people why you’re doing it and what drew you to support us. Make sure your friends and family share your updates and fundraising page as well!
