Fundraising

Doncaster Mind requires the support of the local community in order to carry on operating.  Doncaster Mind is an independently run local charity and affiliated member of National Mind.

We adhere to Mind’s ethos, aims and quality standards but we receive no financial support from them. This means we are responsible for raising all our income and all the money we raise goes back into our services to support the people of Doncaster and the surrounding areas.

Setting up a JustGiving Page

Setting up an online fundraising page is also a great way to raise awareness and donations for our work and you’ll find our charity on Just Giving.  Just Giving is an easy way to raise sponsorship for your fundraising activity or event by creating an online fundraising page which you can email, tweet and share your link on Facebook to all of your friends, family and colleagues. It’s a simple and effective way to collect funds, and the donations come directly through to us!

We find that the most successful online giving pages are those that feature a photo, a story, a target and regular updates too!

Take a look at our  instructions on how to set up your own online fundraising page.

Take a look at their fundraising help guides(http://www.justgiving.com/en/fundraising/fundraising-ideas) for hints and tips to make the most of your online fundraising page.
