To set up your own Givey fundraising page you first need to sign-up to Givey. It is free, quick and very easy to register! Simply visit www.givey.com and click on the ‘Sign-up’ button on the top right corner of the website. Enter your details and your done! If your already registered on Givey than log-in and click ‘Create Fundraiser’ in the top left corner of the website. Below are screenshots of how the setting-up process looks.
Whether you are on the Givey Home page or on another Givey web page, the ‘Create Fundraiser’ button will always be on the top left of the website. Click it to get started!
Next, you need to fill out this form. These are details about your fundraising that will show up on your page. Please fill in every field so you have all the information needed to show your donors. When you type in the charity name, a list of charities will appear for you to choose from. Next, type a description about your fundraising activity including when and what it is your doing, why you are doing it and for what cause. If you have a story to tell then let your donors know. Include this before our ‘Thankyou paragraph’. Then click, ‘Create Fundraiser’ and voila! There is your Givey Fundraising Page!
- If your charity has not shown up, they may not be on the Givey platform. They can be though by simply emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org and letting your charity know to sign-up on to Givey too, so you can raise money for them!
- Give as much detail as you can about your fundraising so the donors know what they are donating too and it will help increase your donations!
