We’ve been working with Parentkind exclusively to offer PTA members a new fundraising service. We are the ﬁrst platform to support PTAs with a FREE all in one service and unlike other fundraising platforms we don’t charge a commission fee, set up fee or monthly charges on donations you receive – we want PTAs to get all the beneﬁts of fundraising in one place.See how we compare
"You have told us that you wanted a cost-effective way to fundraise online. After 18 months of development work with our partner easyfundraising, Parentkind is delighted to launch this new platform for our members. As well as being a one-stop-shop for retailer and event fund raising and managing donations, this is also one of the cheapest platforms out there! So now your PTA community can raise even more money to supercharge our children’s education."Michelle Doyle Wildman, Acting CEO, Parentkind
"The new ways to fundraise from easyfundraising will help us get more parents involved in our PTA community. It's great to have all of our fundraising activity all in one place. It's really going to help us raise more."Rachel, PTA Chair
You can now add a donation button to your easyfundraising PTA page. It’s mobile-friendly and easy to use, and parents can choose the amount they want to give. They can even set up regular monthly payments too!Upgrade your account
Our fundraising pages allow parents to set up their very own page to raise money for the PTA. Whether it’s a parachute jump, a sponsored silence or even a gruelling marathon, they can raise donations by asking friends and family to sponsor them, and we send the donations directly to your PTA.Upgrade your account
Your PTA can access easy to use reports that will tell you which parents are raising funds. You’ll be able to see how much they’re raised and how they’ve done it: through shopping, donating or through their own fundraising page. It’s now even easier to say a BIG THANK YOU and for you to keep track of all your donations.Upgrade your account
Unlike other sites like JustGiving and GoFundMe, we won’t charge a commission on the donations you receive, making us one of the best value fundraising platforms in the UK.

Since 2005 easyfundraising has helped thousands of Parentkind PTAs to raise free funds through its shopping platform. Parents and other supporters can raise free donations for the PTA when they shop online with over 3,600 retailers.
easyfundraising and Parentkind have been working together to develop additional value for members. We are excited to announce that member PTAs will now have access to two new ways to raise money plus the option to upgrade to a new look PTA page with your own content, images and fundraising total. Your new look page allows you to really tell the story of your school, why fundraising is important and show parents all the ways they can support you.
You can still raise funds by shopping as normal through the easyfundraising.org.uk site, but now supporters have the option of raising more funds in the following ways:
Your Cause Administrator will need to submit some additional information about your PTA. This is because easyfundraising needs certain information from your PTA in order to allow donations through credit and debit cards. So before you start, make sure you have access to the following info:
Your school logo
Your school address
Your easyfundraising log in details
There are 5 simple steps to getting your new features:
This additional information is needed to ensure easyfundraising can set up the necessary payment processes for credit and debit card payments to your PTA. Easyfundraising will then verify the information provided before access to the new Donate and Fundraising Pages capability is available to use.
Once you’ve upgraded to the new features, easyfundraising will migrate the amount raised to date across to your new page, as well as the supporters of your cause.
You can then share the new cause page to new and existing supporters.
The easyfundraising team are on hand to help with any questions you might have. Just email them at email@example.com and they’ll be happy to help.
Why are only a limited number of PTAs being invited to participate?
The changes to the easyfundraising website represent a new and exciting way for PTAs to raise money and as an existing easyfundraising user, you’ve been selected for early access to help us ensure the new features are working as effectively as possible. Your feedback is going to be really important for us so that we can continue to develop and adapt to best support PTAs in their fundraising activity.
