Additional Funding Through the Cost of Living Crisis

Updated: May 30, 2023

As we continue to feel the financial pinch, and with the news that AmazonSmile is soon to close, it's important to consider and introduce fundraising ideas that are free and easy to maintain.

That’s why we encourage our members, voluntary groups, charities, and CICs to join easyfundraising.

easyfundraising is passionate about local groups and communities accessing vital funds, which is why they partner with over 7,000 online retail brands that want to give back.

Simply put, when someone shops online, a small percentage of what they spend transforms into a monetary donation for your organisation. It’s free for your organisation and the online

shopper – the retailer donates the money, not the shopper.

Anything from a weekly grocery shop to a family holiday can generate a free donation because over 7,000 retailers are involved, including Amazon, eBay, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, M&S, Screwfix, Waitrose, Argos, Moonpig, Tesco, Boots, trainline and more.

With 24% of people shopping online twice a week these days – and everyone watching how they spend their pennies - this is a way you can ask for support without needing to ask for money. For example, a weekly online food shop at ASDA raises £1 for your organisation. 5 people shopping weekly = £5 a week in donations and over £250 in a year.

All you need to do to start receiving these donations is register your organisation here.

If you'd like to learn more about easyfundraising, you can sign yourself up to a 'Meet the Funder' webinar with easyfundraising on Monday 20th March. During the webinar, they will be explaining how easyfundraising works for good causes and how a partnership can benefit your organisation. Training Coordinator Devan will also be explaining how it works for ERVAS (East Riding Voluntary Action Services) and their groups. Find out more here.

The easyfundraising team will also help you get started and give you lots of free support to

help you get your volunteers, supporters and staff involved.
