Step-by-step guide to setting up your fundraising page on JustGiving

Thank you for support. We hope this guide helps you set up your JustGiving page.

1. Go to: www.justgiving.com

2. This will take you to the JustGiving homepage. Look for the purple Start Fundraising heading (halfway down the page on the left-hand side) and click on the Make your page button.

3. Next you either need to register for a JustGiving account, or sign in to your existing JustGiving account (instructions will be on your screen).

4. Once you have registered/signed in you will then be taken to a page called Search for the cause you want to support. Type Street Child United into the search box, and our page should come up as the first option – click on this.

5. You will then be taken to the Let us know what you’re doing page and we advise you to click on Doing your own thing.

6. The next page you’ll be taken to is Tell us about your event where you have to chose an option from the drop-down button. We advise you to choose an appeal for a charity, and underneath you can type in Street Child United. Here you can also choose the date of your event.

7. You must click NO to the question Is your charity contributing to the cost of your fundraising?this is very important!

8. We strongly advise you then set your fundraising target (if we haven’t given you one yet do ask us), as it is very important that donors see your target – they are more likely to give you higher donations.

9. You can then personalise your page by clicking Edit page. We strongly advise you to do this as it makes it much more personal to you and to Street Child United – people are much more likely to donate to you if you’re describing your personal reasons for taking part. Also, please do put photos and links to our YouTube videos up so that your donors can really engage with the issue. (If you need more resources please do get in touch!)

Thank you and good luck! Please do ask us if there is anything we can do to support your fundraising – we are here to help, contact Alexandria@streetchildunited.org
