Fundraising online tips

We're so grateful you've decided to fundraise for Alzheimer's Research UK. Here are some resources and information to get your online fundraising up and running.

Setting up your online fundraising page

An online fundraising page is a great way to tell people about what you’re doing to defeat dementia. It makes it easy for people to donate and it’s a great way to update people on your progress.

Setting up your own page couldn’t be easier:

  1. Head to JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving and follow the instructions. Make sure you select Alzheimer’s Research UK. (Please note, we’re listed on many other fundraising websites so if you have a preference you should find us on there!).
  2. Personalise your page with photos, and add a message about why you’re fundraising for us. Remember, every pound you raise brings us closer to defeating dementia.
  3. Shout about it! Send your friends, family and colleagues a link to your page, post it on Facebook and tweet it.
  4. Watch as the messages of support and sponsorship roll in.

Online fundraising sites are an easy and secure way of allowing people to sponsor you. You won’t need to chase anyone for money, as the funds get sent directly to us from the site.
