Exclusive £1,000 giveaway for the third sector

To help ease the hardship the third sector is facing, easyfundraising is giving away £500 to one organisation and £100 to five organisations.

To be in with the chance of winning, register with easyfundraising by 23:59 on 31 October 2022. If your organisation is signed up already, you can still enter by raising three donations between 1st and 31st October.

easyfundraising is committed to helping our sector flourish, especially as we go through challenging times. Their approach to fundraising is simple; they turn everyday online purchases into free, unrestricted funding you can use to support yourselves and the wider community.

They and over 7,000 brands want to give back to local groups and communities, so when someone shops at one of the brands, easyfundraising shares a percentage of what they’ve spent with your organisation for free. For example, if a volunteer did their food shop at Sainsbury’s, their first home delivery shop would generate £6 for your organisation. After that, every weekly shop would generate £2. So in a year, your organisation would receive £108 – for free.

There are huge benefits of joining easyfundraising;

  • It provides a continuous, free, and unrestricted funding source for all third-sector organisations.
  • An easy and inclusive way for people to give without it coming directly out of their pockets.
  • It requires little time and effort to manage so you can carry on with what’s really important.

We don’t want our organisations to miss out. Be sure to enter the giveaway by 23:59 on 31 October 2022 and start making use of this fantastic fundraising option. Particularly as we head into the busiest shopping period of the year – it’s a great way to top up your funds.
