To help your school fund future trips for free, we have partnered with online fundraisers easyfundraising.
What is easyfundraising?
easyfundraising is an online platform that turns online shopping into free funding your school can use to enable more learning outside of the classroom. They do this by partnering with over 6,000 retailers who want to give a little back, including John Lewis, eBay, booking.com, Sainsbury’s, Currys Just Eat, Argos, Etsy, and thousands more. Free and easy to use, easyfundraising democratises giving, enabling parents, regardless of their socio-economic background to help fund your school’s future trips through their everyday spending.
Does it work?
Joanna Stuart has raised nearly £1,000 for Lady Eleanor Holles School without changing her spending habits. Joanna commented, “Whether it’s my weekly delivery from Sainsbury's, buying electrical goods from Argos, some bedding from John Lewis, or booking holidays at booking.com, the cash pours into my daughter’s school.”
What does it cost?
Absolutely nothing! It’s free to open an account, free to use and will never cost you or any of your supporters a penny extra on your shopping.
Easyfundraising is paid directly by the retailer, as are you, meaning it remains a cost-free solution for your school fundraising which you can use towards your LOtC activities, making school trips even more accessible for all of your students!
How Do I Open An Account?
- open your account at easyfundraising.org.uk/uk-school-trips
- Once registered, your school can book a 1-2-1 call with the easyfundraising team for tips and advice on raising as much as possible. There is also an online portal with personalised pre-built flyers, posters, social media copy, and images to help promote easyfundraising to your school community.
- Spread the word – share the ‘support us’ link you will find in your account and get parents, governors, teachers and more raising monies through their online shopping too!
Since its establishment, easyfundraising has raised over £40M for good causes and charities. Over £5M of that, schools have used to give their students better experiences, in and outside of the classroom.
