Whether it’s your first time raising funds, or you’re a seasoned charity fundraiser, the Hub has tips and advice to motivate and inspire you from the moment you set up your page, right through to the Finish Line.

More fundraising tools

Virgin Money Giving will help you create a fundraising page, rally your friends, share your story, keep you motivated and, most importantly, make sure your efforts have a real impact.  

Virgin Money Giving fundraising pages do far more than you think to make it easier to raise more. You can now integrate data from the exercise tracking app Strava direct to your page, keeping your supporters up to date on your journey to get event-ready for your good cause.

And with virtual fundraising the new normal, you can embed existing YouTube videos directly to your Virgin Money Giving fundraising page, or stream live from the platform, keeping your fundraising story fresh and engaging, while encouraging your friends and family to donate to your page.   

You can also help make a difference and raise funds through Virgin Money Giving’s partnership with Ziffit, where you can sell your unwanted stuff and donate its value to your fundraising page.  And you can turn buying into giving too – Virgin Money Giving has teamed up with social enterprise Kindred so you to earn cashback on your everyday shopping for your charity, at no extra expense to you.

Quick donate with the London Marathon app

Unique to Virgin Money Giving fundraising pages only, you’ll automatically get a ‘Donate Now’ button next to your name on the official London Marathon app, which enables you to get last-minute donations from your supporters on Marathon Day with ease.

More money for your chosen charity

Through Virgin Money Giving, 100 per cent of your donations go to charity with Donor Covers Fee. Virgin Money Giving will never make a profit from what it does, but it does need to charge a small platform and processing payment fee. Giving donors the option to cover this fee means 100 per cent of the donation then reaches the charity, making an even bigger impact to their cause.
