How to set up your own JustGiving page

Setting up a JustGiving page can be quite confusing at times. Therefore, here is a step by step guide.

JustGiving is a brilliant platform to use for fundraising and can be used for a variety of different events. Sponsored events like marathons, 10k runs, walks etc are one of the most common choices but JustGiving can also be used for other events like cake sales, talent shows, non-uniform days and more to raise money. Setting up text codes can be possible meaning that people can donate up to £10 via their phone. If this would be beneficial for you then please get in touch.

Also if you are organising a fundraising event then please get in touch with our fundraising coordinator Molly by emailing molly.gilmartin@queens.ox.ac.uk.

The 2017 campaign for fundraising is called #smash500 because it encourages people to try and raise £500 in their community, school, workplace, church etc and the idea is that together we can smash the fundraising target for this year for the Future Fertility Trust of £500,000.

So let’s get started.

  1. Find the JustGiving website at www.justgiving.com and click start fundraising

2. I’m raising money for… A charity so click start fundraising meaning that the money you raise will come to the Future Fertility Trust.

3. Select the charity you wish to support. The Future Fertility Trust is under the Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals Charitable Funds which is an area of the hospital that coordinates the different hospital charities. So, search for ORH or Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals and you will see it comes up. 

Working with ORH Charitable Funds is great because it means we do not have administration costs of running our charity. This means that 100% of the money you will raise will go straight to providing the cryopreservation service to young people.

4. Select the form of fundraising that best suits your event!

5. Most people tend to do an organised event or a personal challenge. If you are doing an organised event sometimes the ones associated with ORH Charitable Funds will come up or you can search for your event and it may come up!

If your event is not there you can add your own to make sure your supporters are up to date with what you are doing.

6. Set up your fundraising web page! This can be your name or your event or whatever you please! A common choice is ‘YOUR NAME is raising money for the Future Fertility Trust!’ 

GIFT AID: receiving gift aid on your donations will increase your fundraising total massively. However, it depends on what event you are running whether Gift Aid can be claimed – it can only be claimed on DONATIONS. If you are unsure you can always get in touch with us for advice.

7. START FUNDRAISING!

Putting lots of information on your page can be really helpful to make sure people know what you are fundraising for. Here is an example paragraph about what the Future Fertility Trust does in case you want to paste a little bit about us on your fundraising page.

 

The Future Fertility Trust Programme in Oxford provides hope to young people at high risk of infertility due to their illness or treatment, often patients battling cancer. The FFT was set up in 2013 by a team of doctors and scientists at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust in Collaboration with Oxford University. It provides treatment which includes a comprehensive tissue cryopreservation service for girls and boys alongside a research programme. This invaluable service is the only one of its kind in England and is completely funded by charitable donations. Any amount you can donate will make such a difference and help ensure this service can continue to expand and thrive. As the charitable fund is part of the Oxford Hospitals Charitable Trust all the money goes directly into clinical care and research.
