Greyhound Trust Humber are one of several organisations in our region benefitting from free monetary donations via funding platform, easyfundraising. “Due to the pandemic fundraising opportunities have been lost and without the support of easyfundraising our cause would have struggled to survive,” says Greyhound Trust spokesperson Clare Yapp.

How easyfundraising can help your organisation with funding

easyfundraising turns online shopping into free funding your organisation. When your supporters, volunteers, staff and community shop online with thousands of leading online retailers, easyfundraising turns that shopping into free monetary donations – at no extra cost to anyone.

Simply by shopping with Amazon, eBay, Trainline, M&S, Argos, Booking.com, Just Eat and over 6,000 other well-known online retailers, people will raise a donation for your organisation.  With most of us shopping online regularly now, it’s an easy and free way for everyone to support your fundraising efforts for free.

The money you raise this way classes as unrestricted funds which means you can use it for whatever you need – from a specific project to your core costs.

Clare says, “We use the funds to help cover the costs of caring for retired racing greyhounds during their transition from athlete to family pet. It has helped to fund the daily care of our greyhounds, contributing towards food and vet bills and bedding costs in what has been an extremely difficult two years.”
