Whether creating a personal page or taking on a team challenge, fundraising online could not be easier. It means people can contribute quicker and you don’t have to physically collect cash. You can share updates and photos with your supporters throughout your fundraising and encourage more people to support you.

Here are some of the ways you can set up online fundraising

JustGiving is one of the easiest ways to fundraise online and they have a simple step by step guide to help you set up your page and start fundraising right away.

You will then be taken step by step through setting up your personalised page and connecting your page to others if you are taking part in an organised event or a team challenge.

Once you have set up your page SHARE IT!!! Share it with family, friends and colleagues who can then donate in an easy, quick and secure way.

Facebook Fundraising

Whether you are taking part in a challenge or would like people to donate in lieu of gifts for your Birthday, you can do this through your facebook page.

In the left menu of your facebook News Feed you will see a ‘Fundraisers’ option. By selecting this option and then ‘Raise Money’, followed by ‘Charity’, you will then be able to search for Yorkshier Air Ambulance. Select this option and then input all the details of your event and your goal fundraising amount and then publish to your facebook page.

Then SHARE IT!!! Ask all your friends, family, colleagues and follows to do the same and let as many people as possible know about the fantastic thing you are doing.

There are many other fundraising platforms that are available online too.  If you choose to fundraise for the YAA, and we are not already listed with them, please contact us at marketing@yaa.org.uk and we will look into getting the charity added to that site.

  • Gift Aid

    Gift Aid

    As an independent registered charity, the Yorkshire Air Ambulance is entitled to HMRC’s Gift Aid scheme. This means that for every £1 donated, we can claim a further 25p from the government. So a donation of £1 would become £1.25, a donation of £5 is boosted to £6.25 and a £10 donation increases to £12.50 and so on. It’s a great way to boost your donation at no extra cost.

    Please note that we can only claim Gift Aid on personal donations made by a UK tax payer and not on business or corporate donations.

    The online fundraising platforms detailed on this page all include the option to add Gift Aid as part of their donation process. Don’t forget to remind your supporters about this option. It won’t cost them anything on top of their donation but will mean that the Yorkshire Air Ambulance receive 25p extra for every £1 they donate!
