Top tips

  • Set up a JustGiving page: Ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you for your event or challenge by donating to your page. It’s quick and easy and the money comes straight to Centrepoint so you don’t have to worry about paying in afterwards. Make sure to add a target and description to your page.
  • Work in a team: Fundraising is more fun if you recruit your friends, family and colleagues to get involved.
  • Match funding: Many employers will match the amount you raise, so check if this is available to you.
  • Go public: Share details of your event and a link to your fundraising page across your social media to increase donations and ask your friends and family to share your posts too. You could also get in touch with your local media to let them know what you're up – contact us for help with a press release.
  • Get off to a fast start: Encourage your most generous supporters to donate first, then others will follow suit.
  • Remind people what you're doing: Busy people won't always get around to donating.
  • Ensure maximum coverage: Add the link to your fundraising page to your email signature.
