Many of our organisations raise hundreds of pounds a year with us by tapping into their business links. It’s so simple for businesses to support your organisation. Read on and find out how..
If you run a business or are involved in buying for a business, shopping through easyfundraising is a really easy way to raise a lot more for your cause.
Businesses need to make much larger purchases than the average shopper, buying computing equipment, stationery and office supplies that can often run into thousands of pounds.
And purchases costing thousands can mean hundreds in donations for your cause when you use easyfundraising.
We work closely with many of the leading business suppliers, big names like Dell, Viking Direct and Euroffice and we’re pleased to be able to offer some even bigger donations right now to our business customers.
And it’s not just computers and stationery – we also work with hotel groups such as Laterooms and Hilton to offer donations when you book rooms for employees or for functions. Likewise airlines including Flybe and BMI, corporate hospitality retailers like Majestic Wines and big telecom companies like BT.
Visit our new Focus On Business page if you’re planning on buying for your business soon – you might be surprised how many of the retailers you use anyway work with us and you’ll definitely like the donations you can raise.
There are plenty of other ways to raise money with easyfundraising – without leaving your office chair!
Search and raise more
One of the simplest ways for businesses to support you is by using our search engine, easysearch. When you search the web with easysearch, you raise funds. Asking businesses to use easysearch instead of Google could dramatically increase the amount of funds you raise. An average easysearcher can raise around £25 every year and as businesses make substantially more searches than individual supporters, the potential is fantastic.
Ask your company, sponsors, partners and suppliers to set your easysearch page as their company search engine and watch your funds grow.
4 in 5 people shop online whilst at work, so ask your work colleagues to use easyfundraising and encourage your supporters to do the same!
Include your easyfundraising and easysearch unique website addresses at the bottom of every email you send from work and from home. A simple reminder like this can make all the difference to your fundraising. Ask your supporters to add a link to their emails – and keep on asking them! Our research shows that it takes time to change people’s shopping and searching habits, so remind your supporters whenever you can.
