Five things to do in five minutes to raise donations this half term

We know it gets busy at half term with the kids, but with the festive shopping season just around the corner it’s important to keep banging the drum and reminding people to collect free donations. Here are five things you could do in five minutes to sign up and remind parents to raise donations.

  1. Send out an email

Let parents know about shopping through easyfundraising with our ready written email, you could use it in your school newsletter or just email it out to parents. Simply copy, paste and send.


Don’t forget to collect donations whenever you buy anything online this half term – whether you’re getting started on Christmas shopping or booking a half term day out, you could be raising a free donation for [SCHOOL NAME].

There are nearly 3,000 retailers on board ready to make a donation, including Amazon, John Lewis, Aviva, thetrainline, and Sainsbury’s – it doesn’t cost you a penny extra!

It’s really simple, all you have to do is:

1. Join – Head to and sign up for free.

2. Shop – Every time you shop online, go to easyfundraising first, pick the retailer you want and start shopping.

3. Raise – After you’ve checked out, that retailer will make a donation to your good cause for no extra cost whatsoever!

It’s even simpler if you get the donation reminder. When you shop online you’ll receive a reminder on a retailer’s website to collect a donation. Get it at
