Raising funds online is super easy. We have created this step-by-step guide on setting up an online fundraising page so that you can start your fundraising as soon as possible.  JustGiving or Facebook are both great platforms to help you raise money for Child Bereavement UK.

JustGiving

At Child Bereavement UK we have set up a campaign page to which you can link your fundraising page, so you can see how much you and other families are raising for us. This platform also allows your donors to see how much you’ve raised.

To create your page follow this link: justgiving.com/campaign/trek-kilimanjaro-from-home

Instructions once you’re on the Campaign Page:
  1. Click ‘Start Fundraising’ button
  2. Create an account
  3. Click the relevant button if you want to set up your individual page
  4. What are you doing to raise money? Type Trek Kilimanjaro from home and select the correct event, so your page can be linked to the challenge.
  5. Follow the instructions and read the following page. Your fundraising page should be set up and ready for you to personalise and share with friends and families.

Don’t know what to include on your fundraising page? Have a look at our fundraising guide, which gives advice what to include on your page to maximise donations.

Facebook Fundraising

Facebook is a great place for people to fundraise. Setting up a Facebook Fundraising page is super simple and it’s easy for friends and family members to donate too.

Instructions on how to set up your Facebook fundraising page:

  1. Go to: www.facebook.com/fundraisers
  2. Select Charity and choose Child Bereavement UK
  3. Set yourself and the family a financial target to reach and give yourself a deadline of 30 days (or a couple days more to allow people to donate after you’ve completed your challenge).
  4. Give a title to your fundraising page. For example ‘The Smith’s Trek Kilimanjaro in aid of Child Bereavement UK!’
  5. Write a little blurb on why you have chosen to support Child Bereavement UK, explaining the challenge and inviting other families to join you!
  6. Choose a photo- you can either use one of our official photographs, which you will have received in your sign-up email, or a personal photograph.
  7. Now start sharing and posting your page!
