Step 1. Set up your online fundraising

Fundraising online 

Setting up an online fundraising page is an easy way to collect donations. Using or another online fundraising site, you can:

  • tell your story. So people can see why you’re doing something and you can encourage them to support you.
  • talk about Sue Ryder. To help spread the word about the incredible work we do.
  •  set a target. To inspire you and your supporters to reach it.
  • add photos. To bring your page to life and show your progress.

It is easy to set up and manage, and can be kept up to date on your smartphone as well. People can sponsor you from anywhere, at any time, and it only takes a few minutes for someone to donate securely. Online sites will automatically reclaim Gift Aid from UK taxpayer donations, which is extra money for your pot! The money comes straight to Sue Ryder, meaning you don’t have to spend time collecting the money and sending it in – and we can start putting this money to use even sooner.

Step 2. Spread the word!

Social media fundraising 

Social media is a great way to keep people updated.

News about your event, fundraising, training, progress, hitting targets, or talking about what Sue Ryder means to you – whatever you are doing, let everyone know.

  • You could use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to push your fundraising further.
  • Set up a blog so that everyone knows your progress, or write a blog for our website.
  • Share your online fundraising page on social media so it’s super easy for people to donate.
  • Ask your friends to spread the word by liking and sharing posts, and retweeting updates.

Whatever you do online, don't be shy - make sure you say hi to us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram!
