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.
Gift Aid can add 25% to the total that you raise by claiming back tax that has been paid on donations. Remind donors to tick the gift aid box if they pay tax.
Need extra help?
Ask us for any additional resources that you think would help. We can provide Julian House logos, collection tins/buckets, quotes for press releases and more. We are here to help you with your fundraising so feel free to contact us at any time at email@example.com
