Here’s how you can set up your online donation page, with some top tips on how to spread the word about your fundraiser; and inspire your friends, family and community to support you by sharing your event details, fundraising goals and personal story.

Fundraising pages are an easy way to raise vital funds and awareness of PKD. You can set up your own fundraising page with one of the following platforms. Some charge a small fee and others don't:

  • JustGiving (approximately 2% fee on donations)
  • GoFundMe (approximately 3% on donations)

When you have set up your page:

  • Personalise your page by explaining what you’re doing to raise money in aid of PKD Charity, and if you choose to, why.
  • Add any photos/videos to promote your fundraising.
  • Share your page link on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn pages along with any other social media profiles. Email or text the link to all your contacts too!
  • If you haven’t already done so, register your fundraising with us
