How do I collect sponsorship/fundraising money?
If your event is sponsored, an online fundraising page is the easiest and most efficient way to collect donations.
Visit www.justgiving.com/versusarthritis to set up your page. Once your page is set up, tell everyone you know about it so they can sponsor you.
All money donated on your page will come safely and securely to Versus Arthritis and Gift Aid will be claimed on our behalf.
If you prefer to use traditional sponsor forms call us on 0300 7900 0405* and we'll post one out to you. Please send in your money as soon as you’ve collected it. See below for how you can send us your well-earned donations.
How can I get more from my sponsorship/fundraising money?
Gift Aid is a great government initiative that allows charities to claim 25p for every £1 donated. This means that if someone donates £10, we can claim a further £2.50 from the government at no extra cost to you or your sponsors – making a total of £12.50!
Please ask your sponsors to Gift Aid all their donations. All they need to do is tick the Gift Aid box on your JustGiving page or sponsor form.
