How to set up an online giving page

An online giving page is an easy way to fundraise for your event or challenge, as it allows people from all across the county (and beyond) to quickly head online and donate to your cause.

Here, we’ve put together steps to creating your own giving page on four major websites plus raising money on Facebook.

There are four websites you can choose from to create your online giving page. We recommend Everyday Hero, as it’s a cheaper alternative to other sites, but it’s best to choose the website you feel the most comfortable with.

So, read on to find out how to set up online giving pages on Everyday Hero, JustGiving, Virgin Money Giving and BT MyDonate.

Setting up an Everyday Hero page

  1. Go to everydayhero.com/uk/.
  2. Search for ‘Leukaemia Care’ and select us.
  3. Click ‘Start Fundraising’ on the Leukaemia Care page.
  4. Fill in your details and set your target.
  5. Select the “Edit this Supporter Page” function and personalise your page!

Setting up a JustGiving page

  1. Head to justgiving.com.

  8. If you can’t see your event listed, select ‘Add your own’ at the bottom of the page and describe a bit more about your activity.
  9. Choose your web address – this is the link you’ll be sharing with friends and family when asking them to donate.
