JustGiving is now inviting entries for its 2014 Awards, which will celebrate the achievements of the best of the 800,000 or so fundraisers who have used the online giving site in the past year.
This is the fifth year that JustGiving has run its Awards programme, and this time the public gets to vote on the finalists. JustGiving will select a shortlist of finalists, and then the public will choose the winner in each of the eight categories.
There is no charge to enter the awards, and any individual, charity or company that is registered on the site and has used it in the past year is eligible to enter.
The eight categories in the JustGiving UK Awards 2014 are:
- Creative fundraiser of the year
- Endurance fundraiser of the year
- Young fundraiser of the year
- Outstanding commitment to fundraising
- Giving app of the year
- Charity of the year
- Special recognition
- Celebrity fundraiser of the year
- Fundraiser of the year (Grand Prix)
Nominations close on 6 June 2014. You can nominate yourself. The shortlist of finalists will be announced on 20 June.
The winners will be announced at an event on 25 September at the BFI Southbank in London.
Anne-Marie Huby, MD of JustGiving, said:
“Over 800,000 people have used JustGiving to fundraise over the past twelve months, raising close to £300 million for the causes they care about. The JustGiving Awards are our way of celebrating the amazing things people do to show they care. Each year we are overwhelmed at the response and the inspirational stories; it’s a real honour to be able to recognise these.”
