Get started with Fundraising

Feeling inspired? Follow our five steps to a successful fundraiser:


1. Choose your activity

Support Crisis your way.

  • There are so many ways to get involved. Join one of our events or simply do your own thing. Whether it’s running a marathon or baking cakes, your fundraiser will help someone take the next step towards a brighter future!
  • If you'd like to talk through your ideas, or need tips for fundraising, we'd love to hear about your plans! Get in touch by emailing us at


2. Set-up an Online Page

Fundraising online is easy.

  • Set up an online page on Just Giving or Facebook and donations will come directly to Crisis!
  • Don't forget to set a fundraising target and add a photo to personalise your page.
  • Make sure you share your story and let others know why you’re fundraising. Sharing your own motivations for supporting Crisis is a great way to let people know why their support is so vital and what it means to you.
  • You can also add a link to one of our films on YouTube to help explain why Crisis’ work is important and how people’s support will help.


3. Spread the word

Share your page far and wide to let your friends and family know what you’re doing and why.

  • Keep everyone updated on how you’re getting on, whether you’re training for a sporting challenge or prepping for your own fundraising event!
  • Don't forget to shout about it on social media - we've got resources for that too...
