Setting Up Your JustGiving Page

Step 3: Next you will see the page shown below. On this page, click ‘Start Fundraising’
Step 4: You will now be brought to a page where you can choose the charity you wish to raise money for. Type ‘Forever Manchester’ into the search bar and click ‘Search’

Step 7: Depending on your choice, next you will be asked to fill in some small bits of information (i.e. event date). You will also be asked to select your JustGiving URL – this is the link you will give to people to donate, so try and make it as memorable as possible.
Step 8: Next you will be asked to personalise your JustGiving page. Here you can choose a headline, your fundraising goal, let us know why you’re taking part. It’s best to be as detailed as possible here so we can shout about what you’re doing. Let us know why you’re doing it, and if it’s for anyone, with anyone else or if it’s because the work of a community group or project in your area has inspired you to raise money for us.
Step 9: You will now be greeted with your shiny new JustGiving page. On this page you can see what your donors will see. It will have all the information on it you entered earlier in the process. There are also options at the top to directly post your link onto Facebook or Twitter and also to ‘Edit your page’ in case you want to change any of your original information or add new team members.
Step 10: At the bottom of the page above you will also see ‘Help’ under ‘For fundraisers’. This includes all the FAQs you may have about your fundraising page and is easy to navigate around as illustrated in the image below
