Got a question?

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

There are over 8,000 retailers available to shop with, including Amazon, eBay, Argos, John Lewis, Trainline, Booking.com, Currys, Aviva, M&S, Debenhams, Waitrose, and Direct Line. It means that no matter what parents are buying online, from travel and holidays to fashion, homewares, insurance, and groceries - they can earn free donations. 

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

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

  • The name you would like your PTA to be known by on easyfundraising - try to make this unique so that parents know it's you 
  • The postcode - to help parents when they search for PTAs 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 PTA's bank account so have your details ready 

There are also optional fields for: 

  • A logo - making your PTA 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 PTA 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 PTA every three months and send them to you by bank transfer or cheque. There is no charge for this. If your PTA hasn’t raised over £15 in the previous three months, the amount simply rolls into the next payment instead.
