Upon registration, you will be directed to create a personalised supporter page – this is your number one fundraising tool!
Tip: Upload a profile photo to your page – those who do raise 10 times more on average than those who don’t.
Make your fundraising page personal, compelling and inspiring. Be sure to explain your motivation in taking on the QV1 Descent and why you have chosen to support the charity you are abseiling for.
Tip: Tell your story – those who do raise up to 74% more than those who don’t.
Then simply begin your fundraising campaign by sharing the link to your page with your network of family, friends, colleagues and contacts. Let them know you have accepted the QV1 Descent challenge and ask them to support you with a donation.
Tip: Share straightaway – those who share their page within an hour of creating it raise 52% more than those who don’t.
You might also like to get in first and donate to yourself. This not only proves your commitment but encourages others to follow suit. If you donate big chances are your subsequent donors will follow your lead.
Tip: Those who donate to their own page raise over 120% more on average.
Fundraising can be an easy process if you are ready and willing to give it a real go. The key to successful fundraising is to be creative, think big and start early.
We encourage you to continue fundraising once you have reached the target and following your abseil. You will often find that people are willing to support you after your amazing feat of bravery, so your supporter page will remain open two weeks after you have fundraised.
