As part of our aim to provide funding support to voluntary groups and charities in our region, we wanted to remind you about Midlands based fundraising platform easyfundraising

easyfundraising enables your organisation to benefit from cash donations from leading online retailers.

It’s a very simple idea – when your supporters use the easyfundraising website or app to shop online, the retailer they shop with sends your organisation a free donation at no extra cost to the shopper.

Your supporters won’t need to change where they shop as all their favourite retailers are involved, including Amazon, M&S, eBay, Argos, John Lewis, Boots, Waitrose and 5000 others.

It’s free to use and won’t cost your supporters anything extra as the retailers pay the donations, not the shoppers.

Here’s an example

Ann is a volunteer at her local hospice. She wants to buy a new kettle from John Lewis. Instead of visiting the John Lewis website, she firstly goes to the easyfundraising website and clicks on the ‘John Lewis’ link.

The easyfundraising website directs her to the John Lewis website where she shops as normal and buys her kettle. But because she started at easyfundraising, John Lewis will send the hospice a free donation at no extra cost to Ann.

What do our members think?

Over 40 of our members are now raising money with easyfundraising including Boparan Charitable Trust who have raised almost £300.
