JustGiving Campaign Pages act as an online hub where your supporters can come together to find out all they need to know about a specific project, event or appeal that your charity has launched. They’re designed to make it easy for people to join in your campaign – either by donating or starting a Fundraising Page of their own and keep track of its progress. Some of the key features included in Campaign Pages are:
Fully personalised: You can add your charity or campaign logo, customise the background image and colours shown on your page, as well as personalise the header image. You can also utilise the story section to engage and motivate the public through explaining exactly why you’re fundraising and how they can help.
QR Codes: All Campaign Pages come with a unique QR code that can be downloaded and added to emails, social media or printed marketing materials to make sure people can be easily directed to your page at any time, from any place.
No limits: There’s no limit to the number of Campaign Pages that a charity can create multiple pages can even be run simultaneously.
