How to fundraise

Think big
What would be challenging, impressive but also achievable? Would you like to do something on your own or as part of a group? Decide on a date and set a fundraising goal.

Set up your page
We love JustGiving, which is a simple way for you to collect donations — just follow their steps to set up your page. Alternatively you could use X,Y or Z — follow the links to sign up.

Tell everyone
Spreading your message is key to a successful fundraiser. Let everyone know how they can get involved by posting on social media, and put up posters in local community hubs.

Have fun
Fundraising is all about enjoying the challenge you have set yourself, and sharing your journey with others. Let us know how you are getting on by using #ThinkBigActWild

Thank people
Everyone who donated, took part and clapped from the sidelines played their part in restoring Britain’s ecosystems. Appreciating their help is a great way to prompt others to take action. 

Send your donations
Once you’ve achieved what you set out to do it’s quick and easy to donate what you raised. Follow the steps on your online fundraising page, and don’t forget to close it when you’re done.
