You have signed up to support a cause through GoRaise and you are now wondering what to do next? Follow these steps and start raising money straight away!
And just a quick refresher on how it all works. Retailers donate to your chosen cause every time you shop online! The process is simple:
- Search on GoRaise.co.uk for a product or retailer
- Click out to the retailer’s website and shop as normal
- If you buy something (at no extra cost to you), the retailer pays a donation to your cause.
Search for a retailer
There are thousands of retailers to choose from. Or if you know the retailer you want to shop with, just type the name into the search box. For this example, I am searching for ‘Currys’.
Just click ‘Go’ and you will see all the retailers that match your search.
Shop as normal
Click on the pink arrow next to the retailer you wish to shop with and you’ll reach this page:
Click ‘I understand get donation’ and you’ll be redirected to the retailer’s website to shop as normal.
You will briefly see this screen as you are taken to the retailer’s site.
You will then arrive at the retailer’s site and shop online as normal. The prices are all exactly the same, but now you’ll get a nice email confirming that you’ve raised a donation for your cause.
If for any reason you feel you’re missing a donation, just get in touch and we will investigate your enquiry.
Install Donation Reminder
We understand that when you are shopping online you may forget to log into the GoRaise site. By installing the donation reminder, you will be alerted before you buy anything to activate the donation and so no need to login to the site!
Next time you visit a GoRaise partner retailer, you’ll see a message like the one below, asking you to activate the donation link. It means you’ll never miss out on a donation again.
Share your cause page
By signing up to use GoRaise, it is clear how passionate you are to make a difference in the world and how much you want to raise money for your cause. To raise as much money as you can we advise you to share your GoRaise page with all your friends and family so they can raise money too.
To make this very easy for you, we have created a list of marketing materials that you can use. When logged into your GoRaise account just look at the bottom of the site and you will see a section called ‘Marketing Tools‘ under the ‘Useful’ header.
If you click on marketing tools you will be brought to the following page.
On this page, there is a mix of tools to help you explain what GoRaise is to your friends and family and how they can help the cause you are supporting. The first step is to email all of your personal contacts. Just click on ‘Emails’ and you will be brought to a page where you can choose ‘Get new supporters on board’ or ‘Involve the business community’.
You will then see a couple of emails created for you that you can use to share with your friends and family (in this example I am using Meningitis Research Foundation as my cause).
Simply click ‘Copy Text’ below the email, paste into an email and send it to all of your friends and family to get them to sign up to support the cause you are passionate about too!
Get in touch and say hello
We understand that you will have lots of questions when you first start using GoRaise and we want to support you as much as you can. We have a live chat function on the site which is available 9-5.30 every day.
Once logged into GoRaise, on the bottom right-hand side of the screen you will see a blue bubble.
Just click on the circle and you will be prompted to start a new conversation.
Just click ‘New Conversation’ and send a message. Someone from the GoRaise customer support team will get back to you as quick as we can.
