To raise funds online for your sponsored event or challenge, there are lots of websites that make it easy for you. Be aware that some, like JustGiving, charge a small commission. Others, such as Virgin Money Giving for example, charge no commission and CCP (UK) will receive 100 percent of the total amount donated. All of these websites allow people to donate to your cause securely online and you can keep track of how much you have raised.
