What is Playlist Fundraising?

Glad you asked! It's pretty simple: we've connected the GivePenny to Spotify!

Playlist Fundraising is one of our latest innovations, and honestly, we're pretty damn proud of it! Intrigued? Read on my friend, and learn how the music you love can raise money for charity!

You can create a Playlist Fundraising challenge page on GivePenny, which will feature your Spotify playlist. Your friends, family and followers can add a track in exchange for a donation to a charity of your choice.

Don't have a Spotify account? No problem! Just click here to create a free account!

If you'd like to see one in action, check out this corker we made to lift the Nation's spirits during lockdown: The Nations Playlist in aid of Cancer Research UK.

How to set up a Spotify Fundraising Playlist on GivePenny

  1. Sign up with GivePenny if you aren't already on board.
  2. Go to your dashboard and connect your Spotify account to GivePenny (here's a guide for that too!)
  3. You'll be then taken back to your dashboard where you can hit that big "Create Challenge" button.
  4. Create your challenge, pick a charity to raise money for and add a Spotify block as normal. (Yes, of course, we've got a whole guide for all that too!)

Penny Tip: To curate the playlist, you'll need at least one donation for the tech gnomes to do their thing. So go ahead and put a minimum of 50p in your own pot to get that playlist going.

How to get donations to your Fundraising Playlist

Like all fundraising challenges on GivePenny, you need to share, share, share your page! Our fundraising pages are easily shareable all over the internet by simply copying and pasting the link. Share it on Facebook, Tweet it, put it in your Instagram profile and drop it in your family WhatsApp chat! Anyone with the link can donate - no signup necessary!
