How it works: Online Fundraising

Whether you are a beginner fundraiser, or a fundraising expert, we want to ensure you know as much as you can about how to fundraise and how FundMyCharityWork.com works. We are passionate about empowering others to realise their full potential, to put themselves out there in order to make a lasting positive difference, and to grow as individuals. Here are a few simple steps that make up the journey of fundraising through our online fundraising community.

Whether you are an extravert who wants to host a massive party with family and friends to raise money, or an introvert who prefers to promote online via social media, there are an abundance of fundraising possibilities. Physical fundraisers can contribute to the online fundraising amount.

Simply, press ‘Register’ and enter your name, a username you would like others to see, and your email address. Then, you instantly can ‘Create a Campaign’ by selecting a currency and then you can easily select to fundraise for one of the following two options:

1) Our Charity: ‘The Help Nepal Appeal’ is a non-for-profit charity empowering struggling men, women and children in Nepal. We are passionate about creating long-term positive change through innovative and sustainable programs that truly enable individuals, families and communities to flourish. We ensure that the people we help become independent and not dependent on our help.

2) Your Own Cause: You can fundraise for whatever charitable cause you decide, whether it is to fund your travels to volunteer or help overseas, or to support a charity you value, you can start your story and promote it online to gain support.
