Ongoing funding for voluntary and community organisations

Mon 26 Apr 2021

As part of our aim to provide funding support to voluntary groups and charities across the County, Support Staffordshire is now working in collaboration with fundraising website easyfundraising. This partnership will enable voluntary organisations and charities to benefit from a source of ongoing income. 

How it works

easyfundraising turns the everyday online shopping of your staff, members, volunteers and supporters into funds for your organisation.  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 5,000 retailers involved including Amazon, eBay, Argos, John Lewis, Trainline, Booking.com, Currys, Aviva, M&S, Viking, Waitrose and Direct Line. 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. They can even raise money for you when they buy their Friday night takeaway from Just Eat.

Getting started

All you need to do is create an easyfundraising page for your organisation. It’s free and quick to set up and requires very little ongoing management. 

Once you’ve set it up, you’ll get support from easyfundraising to help you get the message out to your supporters, and you can also book a free advice call with one of the Fundraising Coaches.
