School budgets have never been tighter. By 2020 it is estimated that The Coppice will be £76,000 worse off than at present (information from https://schoolcuts.org.uk), which equates to two or more teachers. Accordingly, it is more vital than ever that we fund raise to help make up the shortfall. Easy fundraising is a great way of doing this. If every parent registered and remembered to use this (i.e. visit online retailers via the easyfundraising site), it could raise hundreds of pounds for us without any cost to parents. We are listed (the ‘cause’) with easyfundraising as: The Coppice Primary School PTA, Hollywood. Please see further information below from easyfundraising.
How does easyfundraising work?: We work with over 2000 retailers who have all agreed to pass a donation to your cause when you shop with them. The donation is usually a percentage of how much you spend with them but it can also be a set amount, such as £30 for a new car insurance policy from Aviva. Our retailers include Amazon, M&S, Boden, John Lewis, Argos and 2000 other well known names.
What do you need to do to raise money?: Firstly register with us and tell us who you want to support (if your cause isn’t listed yet, you can either register them yourself or ask someone within your cause to do it). It’s free for both shoppers and causes to register and use.
To raise money, instead of going directly to the retailer website, log into easyfundraising first and click on the retailer you want to shop with. You’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website where you shop as you would normally. But because you visited easyfundraising first, your cause gets a donation. It really is that simple.
What’s the catch?: No catch. Whatever you buy costs exactly the same as it would if you visited the retailer site directly. We don’t take any financial information from you as all your transactions are with the retailer. We won’t sell your information on and we won’t spam you. And it doesn’t cost you or your cause anything.
