Fundraising Top Tips!
Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
Create a JustGiving page
Set a fundraising target and aim to beat it! On JustGiving you can tell the story of why you're fundraising and make it easy for people to donate before, during and after your event. You can also add your offline donations to give your total a boost.
Just choose Brain Tumour Research as your charity and say something about why you're fundraising. JustGiving also makes it very easy for us to collect Gift Aid on all donations; we'll receive an extra 25p for every pound donated!
Raise even more by setting up a unique JustTextGiving code on your JustGiving page! Or you can share our text donate instructions - copy and paste the following text:
Text CURE to 70660. You will receive a text afterwards with a link to a Gift Aid form which will allow you to boost your donation by a further 25%.
Social media is the simplest way to get support from your friends and colleagues to help maximise fundraising from your event. It's a great way to encourage folks to join in as well! Don't forget to mention Brain Tumour Research and use the hashtag #CloserToACure.
Our social media channels can be found following the links in the icons at the bottom of any page on our website.
