6 top tips to help you raise more in March

The sun is shining and the trees are blossoming which must mean that we can wave goodbye to winter and say hello to spring! So, put off that spring clean for just a little longer and check out our top tips to help you raise as much as possible for your good cause this month!

1. Never miss out with the Find & Remind toolbar!

We all forget things occasionally but we’ve got a great tool that reminds you every time a donation is available when you’re shopping online; the Find & Remind toolbar. It’s completely free and really easy to use. On average, people who use it raise 5 times more donations!

Don’t just take our word for it! Lesley Syme who supports Killin Dramatic Club registered with easyfundraising in October 2007. Lesley explains:

“I downloaded Find & Remind and discovered it’s a brilliant way of reminding myself to use easyfundraising as it tells you when a donation is available when you’re shopping online. I emailed all my friends to tell them to download it too so they don’t miss valuable donations.”

2. Tap, shop & raise!

Do you use easyfundraising on a mobile or a tablet device? Check out our quick guide to bookmarking! Bookmarking, also referred to as ‘adding to your homescreen’, is another great way to make it really easy to remember to shop via easyfundraising and save time when you’re online!
