If it’s time to renew your car insurance or you’re buying a new car (lucky you!), make sure you buy online via easyfundraising. You’ll get the best prices when you buy your car insurance online and there are big donations available too! All the big car insurers are on easyfundraising.
Take a look here.
All the big names
Just by way of example, here’s how much you could raise for your favourite good cause when you buy your car insurance online via easyfundraising:
If it’s not your time to renew, why not set yourself a reminder to use easyfundraising? That way you won’t miss out on a big donation.
Here’s what Andrew, one of our shoppers had to say:
“I’ve got a great deal on car insurance and raised money for my chosen charity at the same time by going through easyfundraising.org.uk to buy from Confused.com.”
More big donations
There are lots more must-buy purchases like home insurance, utilities, TV and broadband, travel and holidays that can also raise big donations.

As a little thank you for all their hard work raising money, we recently gave World Challenge supporters the chance to win a £200 voucher to spend at John Lewis. All they had to do was raise a free donation by shopping via easyfundraising!
The winner is…
Congratulations to our lucky winner, Chris Macey! Chris has been raising funds via easyfundraising to support his Word Challenge expedition to India since March. Along with the help of 10 supporters, Chris has already raised almost £100 towards his trip!
Chris said: “easyfundraising is a great and easy way to raise funds towards my World Challenge expedition next year.
By registering with the website, many of my friends and family have purchased things that they would have bought from the same online retailers anyway – most of the big names are part of the scheme – and it all chips away at the total cost of the trip without them having to put their hands in their pockets. (Which means I can still ask them to support me in various other activities that we’re doing to raise the funds).
It took a little time to explain to them about the trip and how easyfundraising works, but the response was really positive. By doing this early on, it has meant that the contributions keep coming – even out family holiday this year qualified for a contribution.
The vouchers are a real bonus, and because John Lewis sell such a wide variety of goods, I can use them to purchase some of the kit that I’ll need before we set off for India next summer.”
Well done Chris from everyone at easyfundraising, and all the best for your trip next year!

Starting today (August 18th) easyfundraising will be hitting the streets of Manchester with a special selection of golden envelopes. Each envelope contains a donation of up to £50 for a charity or good cause you care about; all you need to do is find them!
For two weeks, our team will be taking the #hiddenfundraising campaign to Manchester, hiding gold envelopes across the city for you to find. From Spinningfields to the Arndale, they could be anywhere.
Keep checking our Facebook and Twitter for clues on where to find our gold envelopes. Your donations could really make a difference, so watch this space!
Do your bit with #hiddenfundraising
As dedicated fundraisers, we’re always looking for new ways to help others. Each year we work with over 2,700 big name brands to raise money for deserving causes. We’ve currently reached over £7 million in donations and can’t wait to see this total get even higher.
If you’re in the Manchester area, keep your eyes peeled. A little flash of gold could be one of our special envelopes!
If you’re lucky enough to pick up one of our donation envelopes, tweet about it with #hiddenfundraising. We’d love to hear who you’re helping out.
