There are two ways to make sure offline donations reach the charity.
Make an online donation using your own credit/debit card
Pay the donations into your own bank account and make an online donation via your JustGiving page. If you choose this option, make sure that you un-tick the Gift Aid box. Gift Aid should only be claimed when an eligible donor is making their own donation, not on behalf of someone else or a group.
Send donations to the charity directly and use the 'Raised offline' function
If your donations are eligible for Gift Aid, it's best to send them directly to the charity. It's a good idea to reference your JustGiving page address to help with their accounting.
You can reflect these donations on your page so that they contribute to your fundraising total. Here's how:
- From the ‘Me’ tab in the app, click on the Page you’d like to amend
- Click ‘Edit’ (to the right of ‘Share’ at the top of the Page)
- Scroll down to hit ‘Page Options’
- Hit ‘Change’ next to ‘Amount raised offline’ and enter the amount you’ve sent to the charity directly.
