There are a number of online donation websites and it's important you do a little bit of research before deciding on which one to use. The amount of money you raise for your charity can drastically vary depending on which site you use to promote your events and manage your fundraising target. We have a site by site guide which will help you make up your mind and save you time as you learn how to fundraise.
It's always worth asking your charity what there preffered online giving platform is as they sometimes don't have accounts or agreements with all the sites. Most charities will send you a fundraising pack or a top 10 things to do, online giving pages are normally the first thing they ask you to set up.
