www.easyfundraising.org.uk is a simple, effective way for supporters to raise funds for your trust. It’s free and so simple to use. Sounds too good to be true? Read on…..
It’s an online shopping directory featuring over 2000 well known retailers such as Argos, Next, Amazon, John Lewis, GAME, Nike, eBay, iTunes, Halfords, thetrainline.com, lastminute.com, Boots and many more.
Each purchase made through a link set up on the trust website will result in a free cash donation for your trust. For example, a supporter spending £50 with Amazon will generate a donation of £1.25 for your trust. If they insure their car with Direct Line through the easyfundraising site, they’ll raise £35.
Many trusts have already joined the easyfundraising scheme, including East Stirling’s ShireTrust. Director Tony Ford explains the benefits: “It’s such a simple idea which requires no outlay and it really is something for nothing. I would recommend easyfundraising to any trust as it provides a steady income stream without having to badger your supporters for money! We’ve raised over £800 already.”
When you register, you’ll be given free marketing support to help you promote the scheme to your supporters, plus a free search engine page where supporters can generate even more money simply by searching the web.
By choosing your Trust’s ‘easysearch’ page instead of Google, supporters can make a real difference to your fundraising as 50% of the advertising fees are paid to your trust when they search. A supporter making just 10 searches a day can easily raise around £20 a year.
Sign up to easyfundraising and Supporters Direct will receive a 20% donation based on whatever your group raises. Don’t worry - easyfundraising pay the extra amount so your own fundraising total will be unaffected and we can use these extra funds to go on helping your Trust and others like you around the country.
It really is fundraising made easy so sign up and start raising funds today.
