Collect free donations

When parents, supporters and volunteers buy something, the retailer sends your unit a donation at no extra cost to say 'thank you' for shopping with them.

Everything you need to know about easyfundraising

easyfundraising turns the everyday online shopping of parents, volunteers, and supporters into funds for your unit. When they use the easyfundraising website or app to shop with leading retailers, the retailer sends your unit a free donation at no additional cost.

There are over 6,000 retailers available to shop with, including Amazon, eBay, Argos, John Lewis, Trainline,, Currys, Aviva, M&S, Debenhams, Waitrose, and Direct Line. It means that no matter what your supporters are buying online, from travel and holidays to fashion, homewares, insurance, and groceries - they can earn free donations. 

Your unit's supporters can also generate donations when making their business purchases – there are over 200 business retailers like Viking, Staples, and Dell who will donate when you shop with them for tech, office supplies, business travel, and even business insurance.

Yes – you don’t need to be a charity to use easyfundraising.

To register your unit with easyfundraising you will need to know:

  • The name you would like your unit to be known by on easyfundraising - try to make this unique so that supporters know it's you 
  • The postcode - to help supporters when they search for causes local to them
  • A description - this should include who you are and what you are raising for
  • Payment details – easyfundraising can pay your donations by cheque or straight into your unit’s bank account so have your details ready 

There are also optional fields for: 

  • A logo - making your unit unique and giving you an identity
  • Charity number - if you have one. 

You can come back to these optional fields later if you don't have the information to hand when you sign up

To get your fundraising off to the best possible start easyfundraising offers a completely free 1-2-1 session with one of our friendly fundraising coaches. It won't take long, and they will show you the best way to make easyfundraising work for your unit with tailored tips, tools, and a guided tour. 

Providing you have raised over £15, easyfundraising total up all the donations raised by everyone supporting your unit every three months and send them to you by bank transfer or cheque. There is no charge for this. If your unit hasn’t raised over £15 in the previous three months, the amount simply rolls into the next payment instead.
