Your direct web address will always start with www.localgiving.com/ followed by the name (or acronym) of your charity.

For example: www.localgiving.com/yourcharity

Supporters will be able to find your Localgiving.com webpage quickly and easily by typing your direct web address into their internet browser, or by clicking on your link.
