Erewash Voluntary Action knows how difficult it is for community groups, voluntary organisations and good causes in Erewash to access funding; that is why we have partnered with easyfundraising, the online fundraising platform that turns online shopping into free donations for good causes.

Every online purchase can mean more; more supplies, more support, and more opportunities for the members who rely on you. Easy by name and nature, easyfundraising works with over 6,000 everyday online retailers such as Amazon, eBay, Argos, M&S, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Iceland who will donate to your organisation to say ‘thank you’ for shopping with them.

Free to sign-up and free to use, it’s a fantastic opportunity to benefit from an additional funding stream from something you, your team, volunteers, and supporters are already doing anyway.

With the busy Christmas shopping period already here, all of your staff, volunteers and supporters will be shopping online in the next few weeks, and they could all be raising money for you at the same time.

Three steps to getting off to a great start:

•         Set up a free easyfundraising page for your organisation – this only takes a couple of minutes. Visit:

•         Share your page with everyone associated with your organisation, so they can start supporting you every time they shop online.

•         Every three months, receive a payment from easyfundraising – easy as that!

easyfundraising will give you lots of support to help you get up and running and raising as much as possible. You can even have a free 1-2-1 call with one of the team for a demo of the site, advice and fundraising

Don’t miss out on free funding, register your organisation today.
