What virtual events have you utilised the GAYL fundraising pages for?

What communication channels did you use to promote your fundraising events?
“We used a variety of different communications channels such as; our Ambassadors network and newsletter, social media channels including Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, The Change Foundation monthly blog and The Change Foundation website.”
How have the donations raised through the fundraising pages supported the charity’s work so far?
“The donations through the platform have enabled us to continue to deliver our life-changing work. The great thing about the Give as you Live platform is that we can run targeted events and challenges for specific programmes which we can align with key programme highlights. The other great thing is it doesn’t have to be project-specific and we can raise important unrestricted funding for the charity as a whole enabling us to develop our innovation fund giving young people more opportunity to develop.”
Could you provide us with an overview of the experience your charity has had using the Give as you Live Donate fundraising pages?
“Give as you Live Donate’s fundraising pages are easy to set up which is helpful when we have multiple activities gong on at one time. The pages have been designed so they are easy to navigate and clear to see who, how and when people have donated. For me, I also love how easy it is to reconcile what you have fundraised.”
What was the key service that Give as you Live Donate supported you with above any other fundraising provider?
“We love working with Give as you Live Donate. You build a relationship with the Give as you Live team, with other platforms it can feel like you are on your own a lot of the time but with Give as you Live, you are directly working with and supported by the team. They provide guidance, skills sets, knowledge and materials to enable you to achieve the best results possible across all the platforms they offer.”
