Free funds when your supporters shop online

As we all start to feel the financial pinch, introducing fundraising ideas that will lift us and bring us together as a community is a must. That's why we're encouraging our clubs to sign up to easyfundraising.

Big brands want to give back to local groups and communities, so they have partnered with easyfundraising to do just that. When someone shops online, the brands give a percentage back of what's been spent with them and share it with your club.

Think of it as a cashback site, but instead of the funds going to an individual, as a collective – your players, coaches, parents, and volunteers can raise for your club for free. In the UK, 24% shop online 2-5 times a week, so as people pick up their weekly grocery shop, book travel, renew insurance, or generally shop online, they can support your club with every online purchase.

Not only does easyfundraising offer your club community the chance to give back; without physically giving back, it also creates a steady year-round income stream. That is low effort and requires little maintenance to manage.

Get started with easyfundraising today and offer your club community an easy and accessible way to support you while we weather the storm.

Why should I register my club/group or cause?

  1. It provides your club/group/cause with a continuous stream of income all year round, not just during the peak shopping season.
  2. It's free and requires little management or maintenance so, you can fundraise without even thinking about it.
  3. easyfundraising provides you with lots of pre-built messages, images, flyers, and toolkits to help engage your supporters.

Help fund your sporting journey (for athletes)

Are you an athlete who needs more funding to help with training costs, travel and equipment? You too can sign up to easyfundraising and get support from your family, friends and sponsors can earn cashback to help fund your sporting career.

There's a catch, right? No, there's no catch. Free to register and use, all you need to do is sign yourself up to easyfundraising as a cause, then encourage family, friends, and your sponsors to sign up too. Then when they shop online via the easyfundraising website or app, they can help support your sporting journey!

How does Easyfundraising work?

Easyfundraising is the UK's largest fundraising cashback platform. Unlike other platforms where individuals can earn cashback for themselves on their online purchases, individuals can earn cashback for their favourite good cause or charity instead. Meaning your club/group/cause can earn some much-needed funds from its supporters and players shopping online.

When anyone visits their favourite online retailers through the easyfundraising website or app; and makes a purchase, the retailer will donate to your registered cause to say 'thank you' for shopping with them. There are over 7,500 retailers to shop with, including everyone's everyday favourites…

Thousands of community sport and physical activity clubs and groups like yours are already using easyfundraising to help fund running costs, equipment, trips, kit, coaching qualifications and more.

It's really simple:

1. Join Easyfundraising

Create a free easyfundraising account for your Club/Group/Cause and send your supporters your unique easyfundraising website link for them to sign-up and support you!

It's completely free to register and use and only takes two minutes to get started.

You can also book your free 1-2-1 coaching call with the easyfundraising team to understand how to get the most out of easyfundraising for your club.

2. Start Shopping

Ask your supporters to use Easyfundraising every time they shop online.

They either need to be logged in to their Easyfundraising account when browsing online, use the app or have the Donation Reminder plug-in on their internet browser, so they never miss a possible donation when shopping around.

3. Raise Funds for your Club/Group

Whenever they buy something online, the retailer sends your club/group/cause a free donation at no extra cost!

It doesn't cost the shopper a penny more so it's an easy way for your community to support your club/group/cause just by shopping online as they usually would.

Just think how much everyone connected to your club/group/cause – players, staff, coaches, family and friends – spend online every week. Each purchase can mean a free donation for your club/group or cause!
