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

Retailers pay us a commission when a sale is made on their website from a customer who has come via easyfundraising. We pass on at least 50% of that commission to the cause you have chosen to support. The donation amount you see on our website, app or browser extension is the amount we pay across to the cause.

We also make money from advertising retailer offers and promotions in emails and on our website.

Once you sign up your cause, you will be able to access a suite of tools to promote it to your friends and family.

These tools include pre-written social media templates, emails, whatsapp messages for you to use to spread the word about your cause.

Once your friends and family have signed up to support your cause, they’ll be able to shop online with their favourite brands using easyfundraising.

When they check out, the brands will donate a percentage of the final bill to your cause, as a “thank you” for spending with them using easyfundraising.
