Getting Started with Fundraising

Follow our useful tips on how to get started with fundraising and make your event to support the work we do a memorable one.

Step 1: Decide on a fundraising event

Whether you want to take on a marathon, hold a bake sale, dive out of a plane or organise a dress up day, there are endless ways to raise funds for us. You’ll find a full list of things you could do in our Fundraising Kit.

Step 2: Set up a free fundraising page

We recommend setting up your online fundraising page as soon as possible, using either Virgin Money Giving or JustGiving.

This is a simple way to raise funds for YNOT Aspire. You can personalise your page with a story, images and details of your fundraising which can then be easily shared with everyone, and every penny comes directly to us – including Gift Aid!

Step 3: Promote your fundraising

To really make your event a success, it’s a great idea to promote it to as many people as possible. So 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.

We want to help too, so make sure you mention us in your posts!

Step 4: On the day

With all the hard work and planning done, the only thing left is to enjoy the day!

Make sure to take plenty of photos, send them to us and post them on social media – it may help to bring in a few extra donations and our social media team might be able to help by sharing and retweeting them too.

Step 5: Donate the funds

After your fundraising event, there are a number of different ways you can donate what you have raised to YNOT Aspire.
