Turn everyday online shopping into pounds for your club

easy funding logo

easyfundraising turns everyday online shopping by your members and supporters into donations for your club or organisation.

This online platform works with over 7,000 online retailers - including brands like Amazon, John Lewis, eBay, Musto, Wickes, Helly Hansen, Sainsbury’s and many more - who will all donate to your club for free to say thank you for shopping with them.

In partnership with the RYA, it means that online purchases made by your members can add up to more - more equipment and support for your club and more opportunities for your members.

If an average online shopper is able to generate £30 per year, imagine the possibilities if everyone associated with your club started using easyfundraising?

Club members with their own business may also want to use easyfundraising for their stationary, travel or tech, resulting in even more funding for your club.

Free to sign-up and free to use, easyfundraising is an accessible way to create an additional funding stream with just four easy steps to bring in the benefits:

  • Register your organisation for free with easyfundraising -  this only takes a couple of minutes
  • Sign up for a free 1-2-1 session with a friendly easyfundraising coach for tailored tips and tools and a guided tour of the platform
  • Share your easyfundraising page with your club members and supporters – all they have to do is click on this first when they are shopping online
  • Collect the cash when retailers send your organisation a donation at no extra cost to say 'thank you' for shopping with them

Reaping the rewards of easyfundraising

At Cransley Sailing Club, easyfundraising generates approximately £700 a year in donations generated by members and supporters shopping online through the platform.

Located in Northamptonshire with around 300 members, the club has found easyfundraising to be an invaluable source of additional income for its activities.

“easyfundraising has been absolutely brilliant for us,” says Commodore Nigel Austin. “People think it’s complicated but it’s not. Using the easyfundraising platform is just like going through a door – you open the easyfundraising page and after that you’re into the usual shopping websites."

“We have 62 adults supporting us through easyfundraising and you can see how you are doing online so I know, for example, that in the last 30 days we’ve raised nearly £40 and recruited one new supporter. There are no fees and every quarter, easyfundraising put the money raised into your bank account.

“It’s amazing the amount of online shopping you can do through easyfundraising - whether it’s every day shopping, buying presents or wine for a wedding, or even booking a hotel for work - and it’s so easy to use. I’d recommend it to every club.”
