Our top tips to fundraise

1. Decide how you'll take donations

An easy way to start your online fundraising is by setting up a JustGiving page where you can give supporters regular updates on your progress. You can also use a sponsorship form and collect donations to pay them in yourself. 

How to pay in your fundraising

Share these facts to show the potential impact of people's donations:

  • £25 could help fund one hour of complementary therapy for our patients 
  • £50 could help fund a month’s support materials for bereavement sessions 
  • £100 could help fund our patient & visitor transport service for one day 

2. Choose a fundraising target

Pages with a target raise 46% more! Add a pledge to your target to motivate people to help you reach your goal.

3. Tell your personal story

Why do you care about Mountbatten Hampshire? Why should your friends, colleagues, employer and the local community sponsor you or support your event?

Stories are one of the most impactful ways to help people realise the importance of their donations. Use the 'story' section on your JustGiving page to let people know why their support matters. 

Share your story with friends social media like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and WhatsApp. Make sure to include the link to your JustGiving or let people know how they can support you. 

You can also share stories from other people we've helped from our social media and website to demonstrate the impact of the money you raise for Mountbatten. 

4. Use photos

Fundraisers with photos on their page raise 14% more! Just like stories, they are a super effective way to engage with your community. 

If you're raising funds in memory of someone special, adding a photo of them will inspire others to give. Sharing photos with updates of your training or organising your event will also remind them to donate if they haven't already. 

5. Don't forget about email

Not everyone is on social media, so send an email with the details of your fundraiser and a short message appealing for support to your contacts. Send the link to those likely to gift you with a larger amount first - their gift at the top of your page might encourage others to be just as generous.

Good luck!
