How to Set Up Your Fundraising Page

by Fi Moran 26 Oct 2016

Setting up your fundraising page is easy and an essential part of your fundraising journey!

This is where you will direct all of your potential sponsors – so you want to make sure your fundraising page inspires them to donate!

Think about it: if you were considering donating to someone else's fundraising request and you were directed to a page without an image or personal message, would you want to donate, or have the confidence that you were donating to the right person?

People are visual and are much more likely to donate if they can see pictures and messages outlining what their donation will mean to you!

To help you on your way we have put together 9 simple steps to setting up your fundraising page!

Note: Your fundraising tally will only show donations received after we became Can Too Foundation in 2014.  If you completed Can Too programs prior to 2014, simply tell people in your blog how much you've raised so far!

  • In the right top corner of the Can Too website select LOGIN
