The Boys’ Brigade partners with easyfundraising

Tuesday 8th October 2019

We know how important additional funding can be when it comes to running your group the way you want to - that's why we're proud to announce our official partnership with free fundraising website, easyfundraising.

Whether you need extra funds to help improve your programme or to simply offset day-to-day running costs - easyfundraising is a unique way for groups to be able to raise the cash they need, and it's all completely free!

How does easyfundraising work?

It's simple. You can raise free donations for your group when leaders and parents/carers use the easyfundraising website to shop online with 4,000 retailers such as eBay, trainline, Just Eat, Groupon, Booking.com, Argos, Next, Halfords and Sports Direct.

Every time your supporters shop using the site your group will receive cashback donations directly from the retailer they shopped with. It doesn't cost anyone anything extra to shop this way - it's totally free fundraising! Plus, if you join easyfundraising before 15th December your group could win a £100 donation!

How do we register our group?

Follow these 3 simple steps to start fundraising today:

  1. Sign-up: Register your group for free at easyfundraising.org.uk/the-boys-brigade - it only takes a few minutes.
  2. Shop: Ask leaders and parents/carers to use the easyfundraising site every time they want to shop online - there are 4,000 retailers to choose from, such as M&S, Boden, Topman, ASOS, Uber Eats and trainline.
  3. Raise: Whenever your supporters make a purchase, the retailer they shopped with sends your group a free donation.

An easy way to give more

1st Airdrie are already seeing the benefit of using easyfundraising. To date, their group supporters have helped them raise over £800. They told us:

"We started a few years ago and parents love it as an easy way to give more. By giving a little through easyfundraising together we have managed to raise over £800. The more money we get the more we can do like part funding DoE and taking young people on adventure camps."

To secure an extra income for your group, join over 300 Boys’ Brigade groups already using easyfundraising.
