Fundraising Tips & Advice

We recommend JustGiving

Start fundraising with JustGiving

Use JustGiving to set up a fundraising page for your event and collect sponsorship online from family and friends. We’ve put together a few tips to help you get the most out of your JustGiving Page:

  • Use the story section to explain your event and why you have chosen SAS.
  • Personalise the photos – you can upload both a banner and profile picture!
  • Make sure you set a target, this way people can help you achieve your goal.
  • We do have the old fashioned sponsor forms too should you like one, get in contact with us or download one below. You can add offline donations to your total too!
  • Post updates – this is especially good if your event has more than one part to it, or you’re undertaking a training regime!
  • Once you’re happy with your JustGiving page get social with it!
  • Don’t forget that all important Gift Aid which UK tax payers can claim. For every £1 a tax payer donates, we receive an extra 25p and it doesn’t cost you anything!
  • If you’re undertaking an event as a team, you can either all use one JustGiving page or you can have individual pages and create a team page to link them together and to keep an eye on your running total as a group!

Hear from our fundraisers

The fundraising department gave me loads of assistance setting up a JustGiving page and a text code, which turned out to be really easy, and I was good to go, receiving important donations for a cause I believe so strongly in. I added the JustGiving links to all my social media sites which helped direct people to where they could donate, and I was blown away by people’s generosity.

I would recommend using JustGiving as it is easy for people to use, they don’t have to have cash and they can be sure the money is actually going to charity.
