Our Top 10 Fundraising Tips

We are sharing some of our best tips to increase your fundraising donations. If you have a tip you'd like to share, get in touch with us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  1. Register your fundraising by filling in our online form here. We can support you all through your fundraising and can send resources like collection tins, sponsor forms etc. to help.

  2. Collect your donations online by creating a fundraising page at JustGiving or a Facebook Fundraiser. Donors can give easily and securely, and you won't have to count up coins and take them to the bank.

  3. Personalise your online fundraising page
    - Uploading lots of photos is one of the easiest and most effective ways of personalising your page.
    - Adding your personal story can engage and encourage people to give. Let potential donors know why the issue of fibromyalgia is important to you and why you have chosen to support Fibromyalgia Action UK.

  4. Update your online fundraising page regularly - Add photos and regular updates to your page regularly to let your donors know how your fundraising event/challenge is going.

  5. Send us your story - We may be able to publish your fundraising story on our social media. Send us a short article or video that includes;
    - How you or a family member/friend are personally affected by fibromyalgia.
    - Why Fibromyalgia Action UK is a charity that is important to you.
    - Why you have chosen to fundraise in this way.
    - A photo in your FMA UK t-shirt

  6. Use social media to publicise your fundraising
    - Do a countdown to your fundraising event/challenge on social media.
    - Post regular photos and updates.
    - Record a short video diary and post it daily.
    - Remember to tag us on your posts.

  7. Create a fundraising signature - Adding your fundraising page URL to your signature will help you maximise the number of people who know about your fundraising and allow them to donate.

  8. Thank donors and ask them to share your fundraising page with their friends and family along with their support for your cause on social media.

  9. Contact local media - Let your local newspaper and radio stations what you are doing. Send a short description of what you are doing and why. Remember to include a photo in your FMA UK t-shirt and a link to your fundraising page.

  10. Employer Matched Funding - Many employers will match your fundraising up to a certain level. Ask your employer if they run a simillar scheme.
