Setting up an online fundraising page

Fundraising pages are the easiest way to get donations from friends, family or colleagues.


Fundraising pages are the easiest way to get donations from friends, family or colleagues. All you need to do is share the link to the page and your supporters will be able to donate via easy to follow steps. This guide will walk you through how to set up a fundraising page on Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving. The first thing you will need to do is create an account on the platform you would like to use and then follow the following steps for your chosen site. Please note, if you are fundraising for a specific fundraising campaign run by PCR, such as London Marathon or Snowdonia for Science, you will be given a direct link to set up you page which will bypass some of the following steps. Please check with your PCR contact to see if there is a link available before proceeding with these steps.

Virgin Money Giving


  1. Log in to your account and click ‘Start Fundraising’.
  2. You will be asked what your fundraising challenge is, please type this in to the box and click next. For instance ‘Raising in memory of my father’ or ‘I am running a half marathon’.

A list of suggested events will appear, please locate the relevant event and click on it. If you cannot find the correct event, or event is not the reason for the page, please click on ‘Doing something else?’ and then enter the date of your challenge. If this page is just to receive donations in memory of someone, please select any date in three months.

  1. After completing step 2, you will be asked to search for your charity. Search ‘Prostate Cancer Research’ and select us when we appear.
  2. Answer the remaining questions and then click ‘Create my page’

Just Giving


  1. Log in to your account and click ‘Start Fundraising’.
  2. When asked “What are you raising money for?’, select ‘A Charity’.
  3. Search for Prostate Cancer Research and select.
  4. At this point you will be asked what you are doing to raise money for us, please select the relevant option. If you select “Taking part in an event” you will see a list of PCR events that are live, select one of these if it is your event or search for your event. If your event is not listed, please click ‘Add your Own’. If you select add your own, you will be asked to provide some details about the event.
  5. You will now be able to choose your web address – this is the link you will be sharing with friends, family and colleagues when asking them to donate.
  6. If you are planning on selling goods or services on the page such as Christmas cards, lottery/raffle tickets or cakes, you will need to select yes when prompted as the donations to your page will not be eligible for gift aid.
  7. Click ‘Create your page’.
