Personalise your page

Put up a photo of yourself and share a little bit about why you have chosen to raise funds for Kidney Health Australia.

Make the first donation

People will be encouraged to see that you are supporting your own fundraiser by making the first donation. It doesn’t need to be a large gift—it’s more about the gesture of leading the way.

Share your page

Someone is more likely to support your fundraiser if you approach them directly. For as many people as you can, send a personal email or message. Once you’ve done that, try the broader approaches like posting a link to your page on social media.

Keep updating your target

If you hit your fundraising target, or you are close to reaching it – increase it!

Ask again!

People often need reminding, if you asked them once and they haven’t donated – ask again, they may have just forgotten and won’t begrudge a friendly reminder.

Say thank you

It’s really important that you thank the people who make donations on your page.
