For this years Great Run series we ran a series of competitions to help Virgin Money Giving fundraisers to raise more through their fundraising pages. The first competition prize winners have all now received donations to their pages.
Our first completion was simply about setting a target on your fundraising page.
We learnt from the London Marathon this year that fundraisers who set a target on their page raised 58% more than those that didn’t. Setting a target on your fundraising page gives an indication to your supporters as to how much you’re looking to raise, which influences what they’ll donate. Your supporters are more likely to dig a little deeper before they donate to help you hit it.
