From local causes to national charities and even personal challenges; easyfundraising welcomes every good cause. Sign up your cause and see your supporters raise donations as they shop online.
easyfundraising turns the everyday online shopping of your staff, members, volunteers, and supporters into funds for your voluntary organisation, non-profit, charity, or CIC. When they use the easyfundraising website or app to shop with leading retailers, the retailer sends your organisation a free donation at no additional cost.
There are over 5,900 retailers available to shop with. It means that no matter what your supporters are buying online, from travel and holidays to fashion, homewares, insurance, and groceries – they can earn free donations.
Your organisation can also generate donations when making business purchases – there are over 200 business retailers who will donate when you shop with them for tech, office supplies, business travel, and even business insurance.
