A guide to raising money online

It’s easy to create your own fundraising page to promote your event and simplify collecting donations.

When you're organising a fundraising event, you don't want to spend all of your time collecting cash. It's easy to create your own fundraising page online - and there is usually no charge (the website will take a small percentage of the donations as a service charge). If you're a UK tax payer, the amount of your donation will be increased through Gift Aid.

 

JustGiving

Setting up a page with JustGiving is really simple. It only takes two minutes or so - and the site provides social tools to help you share your page online. The site automatically transfers your donations to your chosen charity within days of the event. It also allows you to associate your fundraising activities with the hospice. JustGiving even calculates Gift Aid (where eligible) and passes the extra money on to us. This means that a £10 sponsorship donation can mean £12.50 for the hospice. Visit www.justgiving.com/

 

Virgin Money Giving

Virgin Money Giving is part of Virgin Money and it's simple to set up your own page. You are guided through options such as 'organised event', 'personal challenge', 'special occasion' and 'someone special'.

AmazonSmile

We’re now signed up to AmazonSmile so every time you make a purchase a donation will be made to the hospice at no cost to you.

AmazonSmile is a website run by Amazon which is the same as the Amazon you know but there are products eligible for donation.

Shop as usual but your purchases will mean the hospice will receive 0.5% of the money you spend back from Amazon.

You simply use your usual Amazon account details to login to AmazonSmile then search and select Wigan and Leigh Hospice as your charity of choice or use the link:

Donate by text

You can donate to the hospice really, really quickly, using your mobile phone

All you need to do is text the amount you want to give to our special donations number.

So, to give £10, you text HSPC01 £10 to the number 70070. Simple! (network charges may apply)
