If you plan on participating in an Event on Givealittle and your workmates, family, or friends are too, a Givealittle Team might be perfect for you.
Givealittle Teams allow for each person in your group to fundraise individually but also show your collective fundraising efforts. Encourage each other to do a tough challenge, or use it for a bit of healthy competition - up to you!
A Givealittle Team page looks a bit like this, with all the team members listed across the top and the fundraising total for the group displayed:
The Team page also gives people information about what Event you are part of and what you are fundraising for:
Individual members’ fundraising amounts feed into the Team’s total, as well as feeding into the total for the Event.
How totals show on the Team page
The amount raised by individual member’s is not shown on the Team page, just the total raised by the group:
How totals show on the Event page
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 your Team will also show in the "Teams" section, ordered by amount raised, so you can see how your team is doing relative to other ones:
Teams represent a bunch of people who all have their own Fundraiser page on Givealittle. The simplest way to join is to go to the team's page and select "Join Team", then your Fundraiser page will be automatically linked to the team.
How to join via the Team page
Search for the Team name via our Search function > Select "Join Team"> Follow the prompts to complete your Fundraiser page.
How to join via the Givealittle Event page
Search for the Event via our Search function or go to Events On Now and select the Event you want to join. Scroll down to find the Teams section within the Event and select the Team you want to join.On the Team page select "Join Team" and follow the prompts to create your Fundraiser page.
Go to the Event and select "Participate". If the Event has Team Fundraising enabled you will see a link to create a new team (under the buttons to fundraise independently or join an existing team):
(Note: Team Leaders own the Team page and are not automatically set up with their own participant Fundraiser page. If you want to fundraise as part of the team, you will need to create your own Fundraiser page connected to the team by selecting the Join Team button on your Team.)

Can people fundraise in Teams for any cause on Givealittle?
Only Event pages support Team fundraising.
How many people can fundraise in one Team?
Teams can have an unlimited number of members.
How are Teams ordered on the Event?
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.
If you set up a team and want to fundraise yourself, you will need to set up a separate Fundraising page linked to the team.
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).
What order do members appear in on the Team?
Members are sorted by alphabetical order of first name.
Can I turn off the button allowing new members to join my team?
When you have all the team member pages you want set up, you can contact us to remove the “Join Team” button.
How do goals work in teams (individual fundraising goals vs team goals)?
Events, Teams and individual Fundraiser pages can all have goals. These goals are all independent of each other, so you don’t have to worry about coordinating Team goals with individual member goals.
Can people donate to the team, rather than just via a team member’s page?
It is possible to have a “Donate” button on your team page to allow donors to donate to the team as a whole, rather than via a particular member. Contact us once you have your page set up to enable this.
