Free funds when your supporters shop online
If you're honest with yourself, how much has your club/group or cause focused on fundraising in the last couple of years? Ever-changing priorities and rules mean fundraising probably hasn't been at the top of your to-do list, especially at a time when it's needed more than ever.
A new year brings new opportunities and a regained sense of focus, and one way to keep a focus on fundraising this year and beyond is by registering your club with easyfundraising.
This page includes a number of key features to support you with easyfundraising:
Why should I register my club/group or cause?
- It provides your club/group/cause with a continuous stream of income all year round, not just during the peak shopping season.
- It's free and requires little management or maintenance so, you can fundraise without even thinking about it.
- 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!
Every day supermarkets are giving you opportunities to earn free funding.
When your club's players, volunteers, or supporters buy their weekly groceries online at ASDA, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Waitrose, Ocado, and Iceland, your club will receive free funding directly from the supermarkets; as a gesture of goodwill.
Make sure your club is registered with easyfundraising and encourage your supporters to turn checkouts into cheques!
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 6,000 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
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!
