These are the questions that we get asked the most often
Should I create a Fundraising Page or a Crowdfunding Page?
That depends on where you want the funds you’re raising to go. If you’d like the money to be sent to a registered charity for them to continue their amazing work you should set up a Fundraising Page. If you want the funds to be sent to your own personal bank account, for you to use to help a community, pet or person in need, you’ll need to set up a Crowdfunding Page.
Can I see some examples of awesome Crowdfunding Pages please?
Are there any more differences I should know about - other than where the money goes?
Yes – the amount of time you have to raise money varies depending on which type of page you create. A Fundraising Page can run for as long as you like. You can log in and extend the closing date at any time.
A Crowdfunding Page runs for 30 days from the date you activate it. This builds momentum and helps you stay focussed on your goal. Don’t worry though – you’ll still get all the money you raise even if you don’t hit your original target.
What should I do if I want to fundraise for a charity that isn't on JustGiving?
You can nominate a charity to join JustGiving here
