A regular source of funding for your unit – introducing easyfundraising
Running your unit has expenses and subs often don’t cover everything you want to do with your girls.
But there is a free and simple way that you can create your own funding to support your activities. With fundraising website easyfundraising, your unit can benefit from free donations whenever leaders, parents and other Girlguiding supporters shop online.
How does it work?
It’s simple – create a free fundraising account for your unit at www.easyfundraising.org.uk/girlguiding-nwe and every time parents, leaders, family and friends, buy something from over 4,300 shops including Amazon, eBay, Trainline, Hobbycraft, Just Eat, Argos, M&S, Waitrose & Booking.com, the retailer they shop with sends your unit a donation which you can use towards your costs, anything from subsidising trips 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
- Sign up your unit as a cause on easyfundraising (it’s free and only takes a couple of minutes)
- Then ask your fellow leaders, parents and Girlguiding supporters to sign up and support the unit (also free!)
- Every time they shop online, your unit gets free cash – simple!
easyfundraising has lots of tools on their website to help you get the most out of this way of raising money and they also have a team who can help you on the phone or on live chat. Anyone can get involved from leaders and parents to friends and work colleagues. You just need to share your page and they can support you for free.
Girlguiding units like yours are already using easyfundraising. Here’s what Liverpool Senior Section think:
