Getting Started

Before you begin, we would really recommend setting up a fundraising page on Justgiving or Virgin Money Giving. It doesn’t take long and is the easiest way to let people know you are fundraising for us, to collect donations or sponsorship and to get the money to us!

Just make sure when you create your fundraising you select the charity ‘Mind in Bexley’ to ensure funds go directly to us.

Top tips on setting up your page:

  • Make it personal – State why you have decided to support our charity. Tell your story, add photos. Keep it up to date, take people through your fundraising journey.
  • Share – Let everyone know about your fundraising! Email your contacts, ask them to share your link, include on Facebook and Twitter and include on your website if you have one.
  • Say ‘thank you – write a personal ‘thank you’ that will automatically be sent to everyone when they donate

Raising Money

Not sure how to raise money? Do your research! See some fundraising ideas below or check out our Events and Challenges page for further ideas.

Talk about why you are doing it – When people know the purpose of raising money for us the more they will be likely to support you in your fundraising journey

Make a plan – Decide what you are going to do, your fundraising target and when you are going to do it.
