Team Fundraising for Events

Givealittle Teams are ideal for workmates, family, friends, or other groups who will be joining forces to fundraise for your Event. Team pages allow for each person in the team to fundraise individually but also show their collective fundraising efforts.

Individual fundraiser pages still appear in the “Participants” section of your Event, and the Teams appear in their own section, ordered by how much they have raised.

                                    

Allowing team fundraising doesn’t stop people from fundraising on their own, so people still have a choice to fundraise independently.


How does it work?

1. You enable team fundraising on your Event page

When setting up or editing your page, you tick the “Team fundraising” option:

                                    

You can turn the “Team fundraising” option on or off at anytime (e.g. if you are a business with branches and want a team for each branch, you can turn off the team creation feature once all the teams are created, to avoid people creating more teams by mistake.)

2. Teams get created and people join

When your supporters join the Event by clicking the “Participate” button, they will see options to join a team, create a new one, or fundraise independently:

                                    

People can also join a team by going to the Team’s page (e.g. by being sent a link from the team manager) and clicking the “Join Team” button:

                                    

You get a notification when people set up new teams, as well as for individual fundraisers in those teams.

3. People fundraise and donation amounts feed through to the Team total and the Event total

Individual Fundraising page totals feed into the Team total, as well as feeding into your Event page total.

On the Team:

The amount raised by individual member’s is not shown on the Team page, just the total raised by the group:

     

On the Event:

On the Event, each team member’s Fundraiser page will show under "Participants" (ordered alphabetically or by amount raised, depending on how the Event has been set up) and the Team will also show in the "Teams" section, ordered by amount raised, so people can see how the teams are doing relative to each other:

     


Team FAQ’s

Your event will be automatically displayed in our Events on Now section of our website, and is searchable via “Explore”; our search function.

The easiest way is for them to use the “Share” function to share the Team page URL. People can also find the team via your Event page, or search for the team in our Explore function. If you would like to send your teams some guidance around this we have created guidance for them here.

There is no limit to the number of Teams in an Event.

Teams can have an unlimited number of Fundraiser pages associated.

Teams display in descending order of amount raised. (You can choose whether the listing of individual participants is sorted by amount raised or alphabetically, but Teams just display in order of amount raised.)

Anyone can set up a Team and one account can manage multiple Teams. (The manager of the Team does not have to fundraise as a member of the Team.)
You could setup and manage teams on on behalf of groups of people, or you can just tell people they can do it and leave it to them to organise.

Yes, Fundraiser pages can be swapped between Teams, so long as the Event and Beneficiary don’t change.

Yes, Fundraiser pages can be added to Teams, removed from Teams, and swapped between Teams (so long as the Event and Beneficiary don’t change).

Teams go through our usual Moderation process and you will be notified of new Teams joining your Event. If you think there is a problem with a Team you can contact our support crew to sort it out.
Also, if you have a preset list of Teams, once they have been set up you can edit your Event and un-tick the team participation option. Then nobody will be able to create new Teams for that Event (existing teams will be unaffected).

Yes, once you have set up all the Teams that you want you just edit your Event and un-tick the team participation option. Existing Teams will be fine, and can still accept new Fundraiser pages if needed, but nobody will be able to create new Teams for that Event.

Only Event pages support Team fundraising.
