Using easyfundraising for Birchgrove
Using easyfundraising is super simple and a great way to raise money for Birchgrove Primary School.
What is easyfundraising?
easyfundraising is the UK’s biggest charity fundraising site. It’s simple to use, and it’s free.
How does easyfundraising work?
easyfundraising turns your everyday online shopping into donations for the school, at no cost to you. How? Just visit your favourite retailers through our website and the shop as normal. Once you’ve made a purchase the retailer will then make a small donation to your cause to say “thank you”.
How much has been raised so far?
Since 2005, good causes and charities across the UK have raised over £24 million with easyfundraising.
Can I buy everything online that I would normally?
Yes! easyfundraising’s 3,500+ retailers include big names such as John Lewis, M&S, Boden, Expedia, Amazon, eBay, all the major supermarkets, holiday operators, insurance providers, plus a wide range of smaller and more niche online shops and stores.
What do I need to do to raise donations?
Firstly, register by clicking the link below:
Then, next time you want to buy something online, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to their website where you can continue to make your purchase in the usual way. But – crucially – because you visited easyfundraising first, your cause will get a donation.
What’s the catch?
No catch. Whatever you buy costs exactly the same as it would if you had visited the retailer site directly. Easyfundraising do not take any financial information from you as all your transactions are with the retailer. They won’t sell your information on and they won’t spam you. And it doesn’t cost you or your cause anything.
How much will I raise?
An average online shopper can easily raise over £100 a year with easyfundraising. The donation per purchase will generally be between 0.5% and 10%. Some retailers – including insurance and broadband providers – will pay a set fee which can be in the £100s.
What if I forget to shop through easyfundraising?
Not a problem! They have designed two tools to help you remember:
Install the Donation Reminder onto your desktop in just a couple of clicks – it will then automatically highlight retailers where a donation is available while you’re browsing.
