Setting up your fundraising page

Here's how to make your online fundraising page shine!

Looking for an easy way for your friends to donate towards your fundraising? Set up a Virgin Money Giving page! It’s quick and easy to do, and a great way to get everyone to put their hands in their pockets and give generously.

Set your target on your page

Setting your fundraising target on your page is a great way to show your friends & family what your aiming towards, and to encourage them to donate generously!

Tell your story

We know that you have your own reasons for choosing to fundraise for Terrence Higgins Trust. Letting your friends and family know these reasons on your page will help them understand why this is so important to you.

Personalise your page

The stock photo on the page isn’t very attractive. Add you own photo and add a bit of character to your page. A picture of your smiling face will definitely give it a friendlier feel.

Scream and shout about it!

Email the link to your friends, family and work colleagues, add a link to it on your Facebook page and tweet about it. Send your friends and family regular updates on how you’re getting on with the link included is a great way to make them feel more involved in your challenge.

Make the first few donations count

Get some of your particularly generous family or friends to make the first few donations. This will set the bar high and encourage the rest of your supporters to donate a similar amount.

We hope you found these tips useful! If you need any help with setting up your page, get in touch by emailing us on fundraising@tht.org.uk or giving us a call on 020 7812 1664.
