Fundraising Websites

Big C currently works with the following fundraising platforms
 
• JustGiving
• VirginMoneyGiving
• Big C’s very own website

• Givey
• Give as you live
 
Some examples as to why Fundraising pages can be set up:
 
• To mark a birthday, anniversary or special event
• In memory of a friend or loved one
• To highlight and collect sponsorship for an event you are organising
• To rally corporate supporters and to raise money whilst highlighting the company’s commitment to supporting the local community
• For other innovative ideas you may have
 
Using a fundraising platform helps you control and collect donations for your favourite charity. They also manage the collection of Gift Aid on eligible donations, so increasing the amounts donated.

How much goes to Big C?
 
These platforms do charge a percentage of each donation to cover their costs. Therefore, please be aware that the amount you believe you have donated may not exactly match what the charity records. These charges vary from donation platform to platform. 
 
You also have the ability to have a page set up on the Big C website which can collect donations where all of the money comes to Big C. However, a nationally known platform may have more visits from those outside your own circle of family and friends and therefore encourage more donations.
 
If you are not sure what fundraising page you should choose or need help setting one up, then please contact the marketing team at Big C on 01603 619900
