How To Maximise Fundraising

Whether you’re firing up a console, baking at school or cycling across the city, take a look at our top tips to boost your fundraising!

Top Tips!

Use your online presence 

Social media is a wonderful tool to promote your fundraising. Tell people why you’re raising money for Whizz-Kidz and share updates on your fundraising activities. Tag Whizz-Kidz and we may be able to boost your post even further (Facebook , Twitter, Instagram & LinkedIn)

Don’t forget to link to your online fundraising page (JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving), and thank people who donate! You can find support on how to set up your fundraising page here.

Stand out with videos and photos

Why not make a video of you training or planning your event? It can be short and snappy with you speaking directly to the camera, or a longer, more emotive video explaining why you are supporting Whizz-Kidz and what the charity means to you. Sharing videos online will capture people’s attention and encourage them to interact with your fundraising activities. 

Shout-outs from local press

Contact local radio stations, newspapers and magazines and tell them what you have planned. Personal stories from locals are of interest, so include your reasons for supporting Whizz-Kidz and any other information to make your activity stand out.

Get in touch if you’d like one of our team to give a statement. Don’t forget to share how people can sponsor you or the event, and include a time, date and location.

You will be able to find contact details online or in the local newspapers themselves. 

Put it on a poster

Posters are a tried and tested way of getting people’s attention. You may think they are outdated in an increasingly digital world, but well placed posters on active noticeboards or in busy public places like schools, libraries or supermarkets often get noticed!

Download and print our poster templates here, order a poster to your house here, or get creative and design your own.
