Online charity donation websites provide an easy way to manage your donations while fundraising. BIBS is registered with JustGiving and VirginMoneyGiving. They are both simple to use and enable donors to make payments direct to us by debit or credit card, meaning you don’t have to handle the money. You can advertise your page to your Facebook friends, Twitter, LinkedIn or blog followers or quite simply everybody from your email address book!
Donors are also automatically prompted to complete a Gift Aid declaration online, if they wish to do so and they are a UK taxpayer.
JustGiving and VirginMoneyGiving do charge a small fee for their services. Please see details on the individual sites for up to date information.
Through the BIBS JustGiving site you can create your own fundraising page, make a one off payment or set up a regular monthly donation.
Visit http://www.justgiving.com/bibsbabies, and follow the instructions to set up your own page.
To create your own fundraising page, make a one off payment or set up a regular monthly donation, visit www.VirginMoneyGiving.com and search for BIBS, then follow the onscreen instructions.
Personalise your page with your story, videos and photographs. This helps potential donors understand why raising funds is so important to you, and to us.
Now tell your friends, family, work colleagues – anybody in fact! Remember that BIBS are happy to promote your fundraising efforts and may be able to help with introducing you to the local press, so get in touch!
Set yourself a fundraising target so people can see what you are trying to achieve and how you are doing. You can update the amount you have raised off-line so your total raised is accurate if people have donated using other methods.
Please use the option to set up a thank you email to be sent to your donors on your behalf. BIBS will not have access to each of your donors’ contact details to thank them personally for their support, so we are relying on you to help us with this.
Contact us if you would like our help in publicising your site on this website or our Facebook page.
And finally accept a very big thank you from us for all your hard work and the money you have raised!
