If you would like to raise funds to prevent blindness without having to keep track of multiple forms or chasing cheques, we at ORBIS have the perfect answer -- create your very own online fundraising page! It's a fun, easy and creative way to secure pledges for your special event or activity.
Why an online fundraising page?
- It's easy. No more sponsorship pages to carry around or misplace. No cash or cheques to chase.
- It’s fun. You can tailor your page to reflect your personality.
- It's secure. Money is sent directly to ORBIS with no worries of it getting lost in the post.
- It's cost-efficient. Because we don't have to spend money on printing and mailing follow-up materials, we save on administrative costs. In addition, sponsors can tick the Gift Aid box so that we receive an extra 28 percent of their donation.
How it works
Using the form below, write a personal message about your event and why you support ORBIS. Insert a photo and pick a banner image from our selection. Once we approve your page, we'll send you the live Web page address for you to e-mail to all your friends, family and supporters. Click here to look at a sample page.
Collect your sponsorship online
After e-mailing your link, check back to see how close you are to meeting your fundraising goal. You'll be able to see who has donated and who hasn’t, and more importantly, you'll be able to read their comments about your fundraising effort. This is particularly encouraging if you're going for that 26.5 mile race! We use Worldpay to process our donations electronically, so you're guaranteed complete security in handling these transactions.
