Splitting money between charities?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
If do an event that isn't charity-specific, is it possible (and how?) to split the money between more than one charity? Am just thinking that I may get more sponsors that way.

I am hoping to do it all online - much easier that way.

    To do that online you'd have to have two separate pages.

    That's what I thought too. I've spoke to one of the charity members who has said he'll see if he can find me some information about this.

    I have just received an email from the other charity, who said:
    Hi Sophie,

    Thank you so much for choosing to support both RNIB as well as Nystagmus
    Network - over half of RNIB's income comes from individual fundraisers
    like yourself, so we really do value your support.
    We would like to do all that we can to help support your fundraising and
    preparations for your event.

    As for setting up justgiving page that splits funds for your preferred
    charities, unfortunately this is not currently possible. For more
    information on this as well as how to set up individual fundraising
    pages and connect it to a team page, please click on the following link:

    n-my-just-giving-page-to-sponsor

    Alternatively, you could also look into setting up your fundraising page
    at Virgin Money Giving who currently do give the option of setting up
    one fundraising page for up to 5 charities as well as gives you the
    option on how you would like to split your sponsorship.

    Once again, thank you for choosing to support RNIB. Every day another
    100 people will start to lose their sight. With your support, we can
    help rebuild lives devastated by sight loss.

    As we would love to send you out a welcome pack, please do get back to
    us with your preferred postal address and we will send this out straight
    away! Our welcome packs include both training and fundraising tips, more
    info on RNIB, as well as a running top.

    i dont think it will encourage people to sponsor you more tbh.

    I'm not sure it will, either, but if there are two charities you want to raise funds for it's fine.

    Or you could do two runs ;)

    There doesn't seem to be that many runs like that in Plymouth. And no, I'm not going to do the half marathon...
