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 Team Member to fundraise, but also shows their collective fundraising efforts. When Teams function is on for an Event, supporters can still participate in the Event as Individual Fundraisers. If you're organising the Event, you'll find lots of helpful info right here.
A snapshot of an Event Page with Teams (below). It's easy to find Teams, Participants, Independent Fundraisers, and totals for each.
1. You enable team fundraising on your Event page
When setting up or editing your page, you tick the “Let people set up "team: pages” 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 the donations they receive feed through to the Team total and the Event total
Total donations reflect accordingly on Team Pages, and the grand total is tallied up on the Event page.

How will people find my Event page?
Your event will be automatically displayed in our Events on Now section of our website, and is searchable via “Explore”; our search function.
How do Teams invite people to join?
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.
How many Teams can my Event have?
There is no limit to the number of Teams in an Event.
How many people can fundraise in one Team?
Teams can have an unlimited number of Fundraiser pages associated.
How are Teams ordered on the Event page?
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.)
Who can set up a Team?
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.
Can people swap between Teams if they make a mistake and join the wrong one?
Yes, Fundraiser pages can be swapped between Teams, so long as the Event and Beneficiary don’t change.
Can people change their mind about being in a team?
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).
Do I have any control over who sets up a Team for my Event?
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 pre-set 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).
Can I set up a private Team fundraising event - e.g. with just Teams from my company?
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.
Can people fundraise in Teams for other pages on Givealittle?
Only Event pages support Team fundraising.
