Decided on your fundraising activity? Great! Here are our top tips to get started.
1. Register your fundraising idea with us. The more we know about your plans the better we can support you along the way.
2. Request your fundraising guide to help promote your activity. Whether you need posters, tickets or invitations we have plenty of materials to help you.
3. Set up your Just Giving page. This is a really easy way for you to spread the word about your fundraising activity and for people to make donations in a quick and simple way. Cancer Research Wales receives the money directly and it takes the hassle out of collecting cash donations, leaving you to concentrate on your all-important fundraising plans! Once your fundraising page is set up, don't forget to personalise it - adding a photo and a story about what you're doing and why, along with a fundraising target, really helps. Your story will not only encourage people to donate but could also inspire someone else to fundraise, so be proud to tell everyone about your plans!
4. Spread the word! Once you have registered your fundraising with us, downloaded your guide and set up a Just Giving page, it’s time to start spreading the word! Why not start by sending your JustGiving link with a personalised message to your family and friends? They are most likely to make the first donations which will encourage others to do the same. Then watch that total grow!
