How to keep a focus on fundraising this year
If you’re honest with yourself, how much has your club focused on fundraising in the last couple of years? Ever-changing priorities and rules mean fundraising probably hasn’t been at the top of your to-do list, especially at a time when it’s needed more than ever.
A new year brings new opportunities and a regained sense of focus, and one way to keep a focus on fundraising this year and beyond is by registering your club with easyfundraising.
Who is easyfundraising?
easyfundraising is the UK’s largest fundraising cashback platform. Unlike other platforms where individuals can earn cashback for themselves on their online purchases, individuals can earn cashback for their favourite good cause or charity instead. Meaning your club can earn some much-needed funds from its supporters and players shopping online.
So, what shops can we earn free funding from?
At present, there are over 6,000 online retailers your club can earn free funding from, but this number is increasing daily. easyfundraising works with everyday favourites like Amazon, Sainsbury’s, Boots, and Holland and Barrett. Big department stores like John Lewis, M&S, Debenhams, and House of Fraser. Home improvement retailers, B&Q, Dunelm, Wickes, Argos, and fashion brands like ASOS, North Face, H&M, Boden, Clarks, and Pretty Green. Your supporters can even earn free funding from the likes of TUI, Thomas Cook, lastminute.com, Compare the Market, NOW, SKY, Virgin Media, and many, many more.
How much have other good causes and charities earned?
Since its establishment in 2007, easyfundraising has helped good causes, and charities raise nearly £40M. Last year alone, they raised nearly £4M, which good causes and clubs like yours have put towards exciting projects, saved for a rainy day, updated their facilities, or used to improve the support for its users.
How can easyfundraising keep your club’s fundraising focused this year?
