Adding a new event

You can add a fundraising event to Virgin Money Giving whenever you like – for each event we’ll add a page to your charity’s Virgin Money Giving page with all the details.

Here are some of the things you can do when setting up an event:

Collect event fees online
Event entry fees are collected from fundraisers and paid into a bank account of your choice (please note there will be a small handling fee).

You can charge several different fees for the same event if you need to (e.g. an adult fee, child’s fee, student fee).

Choose a bank account
If you use different accounts for different events, just tell us and we’ll make sure the money goes to the right place.

Decide the number of people who can take part
If there’s a restriction on numbers, we can keep track and stop new fundraisers joining once your limit has been reached.

Set up events just for your charity
When an event is just for your charity, we can prevent fundraisers from signing up to your event in support of a different charity.

Set up an event in partnership with another charity
As long as all the charities are registered with Virgin Money Giving, you can create an event for up to five charities. If you’ve agreed a percentage split, we can distribute the donations for you.

Choose account users to update your events
If there are a number of staff at your charity working on events, you can choose who manages each event.

Add your charity to big events
We’ll add big events open to all charities to Virgin Money Giving (e.g. the London Marathon). You can then simply add the event to your charity’s page.

Now you know the benefits, here’s how to add your charity’s event:

Step 1
Sign into your charity’s account.
Step 2
Choose ‘events’ and then ‘set up an event’.
Step 3
Click on the ‘get started’ button in the centre of the screen.
Step 4
Please choose whether you’re ‘setting up your own event’ or ‘joining an existing event’ that’s already been set up on Virgin Money Giving. The screen will change depending on your choice. If you’re not sure if the event has already been registered with us, search for it – it could save you time.
