Where to start?
Firstly you should set up a donate page, it’s always useful to include a target so you have something to work towards and also for people to feel an accomplishment when they donate to see that they’re getting you closer to your target. If you have something to sell you could do a pop-up shop, these are incredibly easy to set up and run, they even work out cheaper than selling your goods on eBay! You may also be interested in an online auction; our auctions are very user friendly and are a fantastic way to quickly build up your funds raised. You can ask local businesses to contribute prizes or come up with innovative prizes you can offer yourself – for example, an evening’s babysitting or a couple of hours ironing.
If you have more time on your hands and you would like to organise an event we have our ticketing pages through which you can sell tickets for your event (if your event is free you can use it as an RSVP platform). At your event you may want to run a raffle – instead of using a traditional ticketed raffle why not consider our online raffle platform? Our online raffles are super easy to use and will be a great way to engage your guests. You can also run your online auction to finish at an event. If you have a slightly larger budget available, why not run a live event auction where our fantastic event team can help ensure your event is a huge success! Our auctions are really flexible so you can add or edit the lots throughout the evening – for example, why not auction off your flower centre-pieces during the auction – or use our buy it now feature! Your fundraising site can also include an information page, a calendar of upcoming events and a noticeboard for people to post relevant information. With jumblebee you really can have all of your fundraising in one place!
To get going set up one of the platforms and then you can add the additional fundraising options to your site. Once you’re good to go send out your URL (this can be personalised to your site) and watch as you start heading towards your fundraising target.
