Creating your own page is quick and easy. Most importantly, your donations are safely transferred to Yorkshire Cancer Research at regular intervals without you having to do anything.
We have made the online fundraising process as easy as possible. In just a few minutes you can be ready to start emailing the link to your page to friends and family. Get started.
People will be much more interested in your fundraising if they know your story. Don’t be afraid to share your unique experience and the reasons behind choosing to fundraise.
Fundraisers who add photos raise up to 35% more money than those who don’t include them.
People who set a target on their page raise up to 40% more than those who don’t. If you are getting close to reaching your target, think about increasing it as supporters are less likely to donate if they think you have already reached your goal.
Use every opportunity you have to advertise your page in work newsletters, magazines and alongside your email sign off or signature. Find out if you can get matched funding from your workplace.
Update your Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter pages with details of your fundraising and how people can donate. Evidence suggests that every share of your online page brings an extra £5.
Around 20% of your donations will come in after you have completed your event, so don’t forget to keep fundraising. It’s a good opportunity to update everyone and more people might donate when they see how much effort you put into doing this.
