A personal challenge for your charity and your fundraisers

Fundraising is a key aspect for every charity, and without community engagement it can be an uphill struggle. This is where Big Team Challenge is in its element.

Try Our Demo

Sometimes it's just better to see things with your own eyes! That's why we've created a little demo challenge for customers to try.

It replicates a challenge already in progress, so you'll be engaging in the same way your own participants will be when you launch yours.

How can you raise money via the challenge?

Every charity is different and each knows the best way to engage with its audience. For this reason we have made Big Team Challenge as flexible as we can, allowing each charity to use it in whatever way works best for them.

Here are a few ways in which charities have fundraised through us.

Option 1

Charging an upfront fee to create a team

Using the passcode feature on the registration, some charities have chosen to lock this until a user has donated a certain amount to cover the cost of a team.

This requires some manual input from you, but is a great option for smaller personal charities.

Option 2

Linking to a fundraising page on the registration screen

You can add images, text and–most importantly–links to your Big Team Challenge landing page!

This means you can simply place a link to your chosen fundraising portal and encourage everyone to donate to this when they can.

Option 3

Use the built in communication to encourage fundraising

Allow everyone and anyone to join the challenge, encouraging users to spread the word.*

Once they are on the system, use Big Team Challenge's built-in communication tools, or export users' emails and send out an info pack on how to fundraise.

*you can set a maximum limit if you don't want them going overboard!

Of course, there's no reason why you couldn't do all three!
