How to fundraise online

Colourful balloons 

There are three main sites that you can use to fundraise for us, Guess 2 Give, Virgin Money Giving and JustGiving.

Guess 2 Give

We’re always looking for new and exciting ways to add fun to your fundraising, and now we’ve teamed-up with Guess2Give so you can set up a sweepstake online for anything from running a marathon to sporting events such as The Grand National.

The beauty of using Sweepstakes to fundraise means that everyone has the chance to win the cash prize, so you can get more people involved in your fundraising – because everyone likes the chance to win as well as doing their bit for charity! It only takes 2 minutes to set up your sweepstake at:

How it works:

  1. Set up a Guess 2 Give sweepstake for your event e.g. The London Marathon
  2. You would ask friends to guess how long it would take you to complete the marathon.
  3. You could set the price of each Guess at £5 or £10 with £1 or £2 going into the prize fund.
  4. The person who guesses closest to your marathon time wins the Prize Fund.
