2. Set up a Fundraising Page
The easiest way to collect donations for is to set up an online fundraising page before you hold your event, using JustGiving.
You can personalise your page with a story, images and details of your fundraising which can then be easily shared with everyone. The money you raise is transferred directly to us and if you have ticked Gift Aid that is transferred automatically to us too.
3. Promote Your Fundraising
Let everyone know about your fundraising to help make it a success. Tell friends and family, advertise it at work, school or on local notice boards in your community and of course, share it on social media such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Tag us @blgmind and we’ll share your fundraising stories.
Don’t forget to take photos on the day and tell everyone about how it went afterwards and we’ll be able to thank you and publicise your amazing efforts.
4. Get Our Fundraising Resources
To help make your fundraising success we have collection boxes, fundraising guidelines, forms and other resources for you to download or request.
5. Get the Money You’ve Raised to us
If you set up a fundraising page then you don’t need to do anything. It will be transferred to us securely automatically.
If you or others organised your own collection, there are a number of ways you can get the money you’ve raised to us.
