REACH FAMILY & FRIENDS EASILY
Once you have created your personalised fundraising page, you can easily email your friends and family to notify them you are participating in the 2019 Great Midlands Fun Run and for which charity you are raising sponsor money.
You can also use social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to encourage them to sponsor you. On-line fundraising with Virgin Money Giving makes it so easy for them to sponsor you and the whole process can be completed within a few minutes.
PAYMENTS DIRECT TO YOUR CHOSEN CHARITY
Your sponsor money is transferred directly to the bank account of your chosen charity within a week of your sponsors’ donation.
If your sponsors pay tax, Virgin Money Giving also claims the Gift Aid from HMRC [Government Tax Office] on behalf of your charity. Gift Aid is worth an extra 25p for every £1 sponsored.
Gift Aid claimed is automatically claimed and sent to your chosen charity promptly.
POTENTIAL FOR INCREASED FUNDRAISING
Using email and social networks, you can contact friends and family you may not see very often, to let them know you are participating in the Great Midlands Fun Run and raising money for a specific charity. They can sponsor you for any amount they wish within just a few minutes.
Virgin Money Giving takes security very seriously and wants fundraisers to have complete confidence when using its on-line fundraising resource. It has created a robust, secure website and will continually monitor and update its security to keep it this way.
