Girlguiding Scotland is working in partnership with easyfundraising.org.uk to offer your guiding unit a simple, effective fundraising system which costs your unit and your supporters absolutely nothing.
Easyfundraising gives good causes throughout the UK the opportunity to raise free donations whenever their supporters shop online with over 3,000 retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Sainsbury’s, Hobbycraft, trainline.com and more!
How it works
Watch this short video to learn more about how easyfundraising works.
- Start at easyfundraising
Let’s say you want to buy a pair of shoes from eBay. Instead of going to eBay.com directly, you first go to easyfundraising.org.uk.
- Make a purchase
From the easyfundraising website, click through to eBay to make your purchase. This tells eBay you came from easyfundraising. The price of the shoes is exactly the same.
- Get a donation
After you buy your shoes, eBay will give you a cash reward that you can turn into a donation for your unit. On average, each retailer will donate 5% of the cost of your shopping – and those donations soon mount up.
There are over 600 units from Scotland registered with easyfundraising and between them, they have raised over £40,000! This includes the 1st Crieff Guides, who have raised over £250!
“I recommend every unit to use easyfundraising, it takes very little effort and the rewards are definitely worthwhile!” Pamela Boal, Guide Leader or 1st Crieff Guides.
