Easyfundraising Funding for your Organisation during the Cost of Living Crisis Cost of living fundraising idea As we all continue to feel the financial pinch, introducing fundraising ideas that are free and easy to maintain are a must. That’s why we encourage our voluntary groups, charities, and CICs to join easyfundraising. easyfundraising is passionate about local groups and communities accessing vital funds, which is why they partner with over 7,000 online retail brands that want to give back. It’s simple - when someone shops online, a small percentage of what they spend transforms into a monetary donation for your organisation. It’s free for your organisation and the online shopper – the retailer donates the money, not the shopper. Anything from a weekly grocery shop to a family holiday can generate a free donation because over 7,000 retailers are involved, including Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Screwfix, Waitrose, Argos, Moonpig, Tesco, Boots, trainline and more. With 24% of people shopping online twice a week these days – and everyone watching how they spend their pennies - this is a way you can ask for support without needing to ask for money. For example, a weekly online food shop at ASDA raises £1 for your organisation. 5 people shopping weekly = £5 a week in donations and over £250 in a year. All you need to do to start receiving these donations is register your organisation here: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/bvsc/ And don’t worry, the easyfundraising team will help you get started and give you lots of free support to help you get your volunteers, supporters and staff involved.
