Although fixtures and training are still on hold, running costs and overheads have continued for a lot of clubs and many are feeling the impact of COVID-19 on their finances.
With no official date for a return to rugby, traditional means of funding like match fees, subs, sponsorship and face to face fundraising may not be possible for some months yet.
But many clubs are using online fundraising platform easyfundraising to keep funds coming in at this difficult time – and your club can too.
Over 2000 clubs are already using it to fund equipment, facilities, running costs and more, including Eccles RFC who have raised over £12,000 so far. President Mark Dutton said, “It’s a very useful and easy thing to do – money comes in on a regular basis.”
How easyfundraising works
With easyfundraising, your entire community – supporters, staff, coaches and players – generates free donations for your club simply by shopping online with their favourite retailers like Amazon, Sky, Just Eat, Trainline, eBay, Screwfix, M&S and Booking.com.
They just use the easyfundraising website or app to access these retailers and 4000 others and when they buy anything, the retailer sends your club a free donation at no additional cost to the shopper or the club. It’s as simple as that.
You club community will be shopping online already and with easyfundraising, you can turn that shopping into much needed cash for your club.
It’s completely free to register and use and very simple to manage too.
