Where your money goes

tips for fundraising success

Keep it simple

Choose a fundraiser that you will enjoy, and be realistic about how much work you can take on.

How to collect donations

How you are going to collect donations? Setting up a Just Giving page or gofundme page is a simple and effective way to collect sponsorship.

Promote your fundraiser

Once you’ve made a plan, start spreading the word to your friends, family and beyond. Share on social media and tag Unseen in your posts so we can see your fundraising efforts. You could contact your local radio or newspaper to help promote what you’re planning.

Maximise your fundraising

Keep sharing your fundraising page. If you are hosting an event, think about whether you can sell tickets or hold a raffle. Don’t forget to ask your supporters if they can Gift Aid their donation. This allows us to claim 25% extra on top of your donation from HM Revenue & Customs.
