Are you looking for different ways of raising funds for your unit during these uncertain times? Sign up for free to easyfundraising and raise money for your local unit! Easyfundraising is simple and allows you to benefit from free donations whenever volunteers or parents shop online.

How does it work?

It’s simple – create a free fundraising account for your unit and every time parents, volunteers, family and friends, buy something from over 4,300 shops including Amazon, eBay, Trainline, Hobbycraft, Just Eat, Argos, John Lewis &, the retailer they shop with sends your unit a donation. You can put this money towards your costs, anything from subsidising events to buying the drinks and biscuits!

It’s free to sign up and use and purchases don’t cost anything extra. It’s just free money for your unit from the retailers that your Girlguiding supporters are shopping with anyway.

How to get started

  1. Sign up your unit as a cause on easyfundraising (it’s free and only takes a couple of minutes)
  2. Then ask your fellow volunteers, parents and Girlguiding supporters to sign up and support the unit (also free!)
  3. Every time they shop online, your unit gets free cash – simple!
