Easyfundraising turns everyday online shopping into free donations for your charity.

Additional income for your organisation

We're working in collaboration with fundraising website easyfundraising to provide you with a simple way to generate additional income for your voluntary and community sector organisation or group.

Easyfundraising, which has been running since 2005, enables people to support charities simply by shopping online. It does this by turning everyday online shopping into free donations for a nominated cause of the customer's choice.

How does it work?

Thousands of leading online retailers, including Amazon, eBay, Argos and John Lewis, will make a small donation to your organisation whenever your staff, volunteers and supporters use the easyfundraising website or app to shop with them.

As the majority of people now shop online, this is an easy way to boost funds and generate additional income. An average online shopper can raise around £25 each year with easyfundraising. Multiply that by the number of people connected to your organisation and you can see how much collectively they could raise for you.

Eligibility criteria

Your organisation does not need to be a registered charity to raise money through easyfundraising, the website is open to voluntary and community organisations of all shapes and sizes. It's free to register your organisation as a good cause on the site and it's free for your supporters to use. Over £35 million has been raised for good causes so far, so it really works.

If you're interested in joining the online fundraising platform you can find out more and register through our website. Sign up for an account here.

Learn more in our free webinar

To help Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise (VCSE) sector groups find out more about easyfundraising and get their questions answered, we've teamed up with Becky Coleman, Senior Partnerships Manager at easyfundraising, to run a free webinar on Thursday 9 September (2021), from 1pm-1.45pm, on Zoom.

Join us to find out how easy it is to raise funds for free with the easyfundraising platform and get all the information you need to begin doing so.

Places at this event are limited, so please register if you'd like to join us. You can book your place here.

For those who can't make the date, we're planning to make a recording of the session available online afterwards. If you can’t attend but would like a copy of the recording, please contact becky@easyfundraising.org.uk.
