Raise cash for your unit with Girls Just Wanna Have Funds

September is the time to start putting your plans for the year into action – and one thing to consider is having the funding available to continue to provide great guiding.

Easyfundraising has now launched a new initiative – Girls Just Wanna Have Funds (#GJWHF) – to get everyone involved with your unit raising money at the click of a mouse!

If you haven’t done so already, register or support your unit with easyfundraising – a free, simple and efficient way of raising funds for your unit. All volunteers, parents or staff have to do is simply take one extra step each time they buy something online and at no extra cost they will earn a donation for the unit.

The #GJWHF initiative has been developed by easyfundraising in partnership with Girlguiding Scotland to encourage units to register during September and to gather supporters ahead of the year’s busiest online shopping period – Christmas! Now is the time to get your unit community on board, spread the word and to see the donations stack up.

Registering and supporting in September would be a seriously crafty move!

If the ease and the huge donation potential isn’t incentive enough, your unit could be entered into a prize draw to win a £100 voucher from Hobbycraft! Simply register your unit, or register to support your pre-registered unit between 1 and 30 September 2015 and the unit will be entered into the prize draw. Full terms and conditions are available here.

Don’t discount the additional benefits too!

Back to school and new term time, Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas – they are all key shopping periods and with easyfundraising there are some brilliant retailer special offers at those times. Once each supporter is logged in to easyfundraising before they go shopping, they will have access to all these great exclusive deals, from discounts to increased donation rates – but you can’t enjoy them without being signed up!
