You might have a fundraising idea yourself and set up your own fundraising event or challenge.

You can do this through the OCF Just Giving Page

Go to the OCF Just Giving Page Choose START FUNDRAISING.

Create your own Just Giving Account.

Add a photo – Adding your own personal photos and pictures make the fundraiser more individual to you.

Add a fundraising summary – this is the first thing your supporters will read and it tells your story of why you are supporting the work of OCF. Let your supporters know what being a supporter of the Oesophageal Cancer Fund means to you.

Share your OCF Fundraising page on your social media channels. Remember every time you update your fundraising page, share it again on social media. Sharing is caring ?

Don’t forget to email friends and family who might not be on social media and tell them about the amazing initiative you are taking on, on behalf of OCF and ask them to support your fundraiser.

Include any money you’ve raised offline. Add your cash and cheque donations to your Just Giving page so your supporters can see how well you are doing raising funds for OCF.

Post regular updates – Give your supporters updates on how you are doing and thank them for their support. Remember donations can come in after the event so make sure you follow up and tell your supporters how you did.


Creating a Facebook Fundraiser is a great way to raise funds. Your friends, family and coworkers can donate easily and securely through Facebook, and the money lands directly into The Oesophageal Cancer Fund’s bank account.

Follow the easy steps below to set up your OCF Fundraiser.

  • Head over to the Oesophageal Cancer Fund’s Facebook Page here
  • On the page under the photo banner select Fundraisers. 
  • Select the Raise Money button. 
  • Facebook will ask you to set a fundraising target and the closing date of your fundraiser.

You can decide what is best for you.

  • Add a description to your fundraiser and share your personal story about why you’re organising a fundraiser in aid of OCF. This helps your supporters understand the importance of our work, and most especially what the OCF might mean to you, and your family.   
  • You might like to edit the photo on the fundraiser and add your own personal image, too.



Would you like to set up your own Fundraising Event? You can support OCF any which way you like and host your fundraising page online to raise the vital funds needed for Ireland’s pioneering research to combat Oesophageal Cancer.
