Instructions on how to set up your fundraising page

What is a JustGiving page?

This is your online fundraising base, where anyone can make a donation to your Surrey Hills Challenge. Funds raised on The Surrey Hills Challenge Just Giving Page are transferred directly to Transform Housing & Support, so there's no need to worry about bank transfers. You'll also have your own link that you can share in emails and on social media to direct people to your page to make asking for donations that much simpler!

How do I set up a JustGiving page for my Surrey Hills Challenge?

To set up your Surrey Hills Challenge page click here, then click 'start fundraising', and simply follow the instructions. Don't forget to use the information below to get the most out of your page and maximise your fundraising!          

Getting the most out of your JustGiving fundraising page

Add a photo

Fundraisers who add a profile picture to their page tend to raise 15% more. Show your supporters who you are! 

Add a fundraising story

An engaging story can make all the difference. Everyone's reasons for taking part in the Surrey Hills Challenge are different - whether you've personally benefitted from our services or feel strongly about the work we do for others in the community. And this is your chance to let the world know why preventing homelessness in Surrey matters so much to you. It might even motivate others to become fundraisers too.

Set a fundraising target

Those who set a target raise up to 46% more, so it's a great way to kick-start your fundraising. We're asking participants to raise £125 but if you want to set a more ambitious goal then great! Let people know your progress as you go and send updates when you hit milestones (such as 'we're 50% of the way there!') to keep the momentum going.

Add a quick summary

Can you sum up what you're doing and why in a few short sentences? This can be helpful for sharing on social media to tell people briefly why they should donate to your cause. Please tag @TransformHousing
