Offering an easy, accessible, and continual way to raise free funds, easyfundraising gives units the chance to fundraise effortlessly through online shopping.

‘easyfundraising does what it says on the tin! We would absolutely recommend easyfundraising to any Girlguiding unit looking to raise some money. It’s a hassle free, easy way to get parents involved without it costing them more money. ’

easyfundraising in action
Big brands like Amazon, eBay, Just Eat, Etsy, M&S, Screwfix, John Lewis, Argos, Moonpig, Domino’s, Boots, Iceland, and 8,000 others want to give back to communities. That’s why they have partnered with easyfundraising, so when someone shops online with them, the brand gives back a percentage of what an online shopper spends to your unit; for free. It’s like using a cashback site, but instead of the money going to one individual, as a collective – volunteers, parents, and carers can raise for your unit.
For example, Rainbow leader Cath is buying a toaster. Instead of visiting the John Lewis website, Cath heads to the easyfundraising website first and then clicks on the John Lewis link.
easyfundraising directs Cath to John Lewis, where she buys what she needs. Because Cath started at easyfundraising first, her unit will receive free funding directly from John Lewis. It's a win-win, Cath is happy she can have crumpets again, and her unit is delighted they have benefited from Cath’s smart shopping.
Look how much one person could raise in a year using easyfundraising! They raise donations through the kinds of purchases we all need – car, home, pet insurance, and broadband, for example. Imagine how much a group of people supporting your unit could raise! Take a look at the infographic to find out more.
What’s in it for your unit?
easyfundraising provides a continual income stream all year round and it enables people to give without it coming directly out of their pockets. This takes the pressure off those who still want to give; but also takes the pressure off your unit, as you have a low-effort fundraising option that can last all year.
