Online fundraising with JustGiving

Children from Kankan, Guinea, at the computer

JustGiving is perhaps  the most well-known online fundraising provider. Our favourite way to fundraise online is through BT MyDonate because no fee applies to donations or Gift Aid, but we like JustGiving too. A unique feature of JustGiving is JustTextGiving, which allows your friends to sponsor you simply by sending a text message.

Why use online fundraising sites?

  • Fundraising sites like JustGiving, Virgin Money Giving and BT MyDonate can offer better speed and easier access for both fundraisers and their supporters than the traditional sponsorship form.
  • You can utilise social media to help your total rise.
  • On average, more money is raised online than on paper.
  • Sites are designed to be user-friendly, making it easier to track progress and watch the support come in.

How does JustGiving work?

JustGiving is really easy to use. Just go to the homepage and follow the steps to set up and share a page. To get started, all you need is an email address. Once you're in, you can personalise and accessorise your page as much or as little as you like. Uniquely, JustGiving allows your friends to support you by sending a text.
