online fundraising

You can fundraise a challenge by any means you like - online, offline or both. We ask that you use online donation websites such as JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving  - as this is the easiest and most effective way to fundraise successfully. We, as the event organisers, don’t handle any of your fundraising - all fundraising goes straight to your chosen charity and is monitored by them.

Once you have registered for the event, your chosen charity should be in contact to welcome you on board and provide you with full fundraising information and procedures; we suggest holding off on your fundraising until you have spoken to your charity. If you charity has not made contact within a reasonable time - please let us know and we will chase them up!

collecting your sponsorship

Online Fundraising Sites

When raising money by an online fundraising site, you don't need to physically transfer the money to your charity. The website will do this automatically for you.

  • You just need to ensure that the total fundraising amount shown on your page is greater than the minimum required amount needed for your challenge target.
  • The site transfers your fundraising to your charity in monthly installments, so your charity will have already received the majority of the funds before any target deadlines.
  • If you are at all concerned please feel free to contact your charity and check that they are aware of your fundraising page and are happy that you have reached the required amount.

Sponsorship Forms

If you have been collecting money by using manual sponsorship forms you will need to make sure that you have collected your pledges in advance and sent the money to your chosen charity - NOT TO ACTION CHALLENGE. If you are unsure of your charities preferred payment method please feel free to call them and ask them directly. 

Confirming that you have reached your fundraising target.

Your charity will liaise directly with Action Challenge to confirm that you have reached your fundraising target.
