Individual & Event Fundraising
What is JustGiving and how do I use it?
JustGiving is an online fundraising platform where you can create a fundraising page or make a donation to help Greenfingers Charity.
If you would like to fundraise for Greenfingers Charity, you have a couple of options. Either you can fundraise within your region or hotel or you can participate in a Kew Green event.
To view the seven Kew Green Regions and start fundraising within your region or hotel, click here.
Alternatively, if you're prefer to participate or donate to a specific Kew Green event, click here.
Any consequent fundraising page you create or donation you make will be using the JustGiving platform.

Go to the Events page and choose the event you'd like to join. Click the 'Create a fundraising page' button on your chosen event and you'll be taken to JustGiving where you can create your fundraising page and get going!

What is Gift Aid?
Every donation you make to Greenfingers Charity could be worth more at no extra cost to you by choosing to Gift Aid it.

Gift Aid is a Government scheme that allows charities to claim the basic rate tax (currently 25%) on every £1 you donate to any charity. Please note, Gift Aid is only available on personal donations. Businesses are not permitted to add Gift Aid to their donations.
All donations made via JustGiving are sent to Greenfingers Charity on a weekly basis. Gift Aid is sent to Greenfingers Charity once a month.
