Girlguiding Warwickshire is in partnership with easyfundraising.org.uk to offer your guiding unit a simple, effective, fundraising system, which costs your unit and your supporters absolutely nothing!
Easyfundraising gives good causes throughout the UK, including charities, schools, scout groups and girlguiding units an opportunity to raise free donations whenever their supporters shop online with over 3,000 retailers, including Amazon, Ebay, Sainsbury’s, Hobbycraft, Trainline.com and many more!
HOW IT WORKS
Watch this short video to learn more about how easyfundraising works
There are almost 4,000 girlguiding units registered with easyfundraising nationwide and between them, they have raised over a quarter of a million pounds! This includes the 1st Cawston Brownies, who have raised over £1,600!
"Easyfundraising to our unit means inclusion for all – all volunteers and parents can contribute to the fundraising effort and with the funds raised, we can invest in trips and activities for the unit so they can be available to all of our girls!" Jen Smith, Leader of 1st Cawston Brownies
1. Start at easyfundraising
Let's say you want to buy a pair of shoes from eBay. Instead of going to ebay.com directly, you first go to easyfundraising.org.uk.
2. Make a purchase
From the easyfundraising website, click through to eBay to make your purchase. This tells eBay you came from easyfundraising. The price of the shoes is exactly the same.
3. Get a donation
After you buy your shoes, eBay will give you a cash reward that you can turn into a donation for your unit. On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping - and those donations soon mount up.
We’re registered – what next?
