Top 4 Free Fundraising Websites
Registering with free fundraising websites is really Quick and Easy.
The difficult part is getting Your supporters to sign up and actually use the website when they go shopping
So Far Easy Fundraising has donated Nearly £11 Million to good causes.
You do not need to be a registered charity to register but you will need a bank account in the name of your good cause
One unique feature of Easy Fundraising is the easy search toolbar.Easy search once installed turns into your new search engine.
For every search you make you then earn money. you normally only make .5 of a pence each search but over a year it is surprising how much this can add up to.
"What an outstanding site! Just what is needed! Such an easy way of raising money for charities that struggle with finances. Keep up the good work!"
"Whenever I have had queries or administration requirements, easyfundraising have dealt with my inquiry quickly and efficiently. Fantastic customer service ethos - I am really impressed by them."
2. GIVE AS YOU LIVE
Give as you live have raised over £6.5 million pounds for charities.
You do need to be a registered charity to tap in to this website but any one can still support your charity.
EVERY DAY SHOPPING CARD
Give as you live have teamed up with Sainsbury's and offer a Prepaid Every Day Shopping Card. By using the card your chosen charity can get up to 4% of the shop. Unfortunately it does cost £2 for each person to sign up.
"Raising funds is increasingly difficult in these difficult economic times and Give as you Live offers a fantastic way for people to show they care at no extra cost when buying the things they’d buy anyway.
Everybody wins! The businesses get valuable customers and our charity gets a much needed slice of the profit."
3.THE GIVING MACHINE
The giving machine is different because it is a charity (the service they provide is practically the same as the others)
They have Raised Nearly £1.5 million for nearly 210,000 supporters.
SHOP AND GIVE REMINDER
This is a tool you can install on your computer so that you don't miss a chance to raise a donation. It works by monitoring the websites you are on. When it recognizes a site that you can receive a donation from, a notification box will pop up. You can then login and get the donation for your chosen cause.
A huge thank you for supporting Thomas Eaton School PTA whilst shopping online. You have raised £111.49, which is fantastic! If you haven’t used TheGivingMachine recently please remember it provides a small but steady stream of income to help us pay for all those extras we try to give the children, without costing you a penny! Please spread the word of TheGivingMachine to your friends and family.”
Givingabit website reminds me of easy fundraising. Its very similar but on a smaller scale with less shops.
One benefit is that registering is free the same as easy fundraising
Givingabit does not have any features the any of the other site don't have.
It does have the Forget me not widget which reminds shoppers every time they are on a website they can claim donations from.
They do have over a thousand charities signed up but the number of businesses is only in the hundreds
“We all love a good shopping spree and if it supports worthwhile causes at the same time then even better! So thank you to the fantastic supporters who have shopped via ‘Givingabit’ at no extra cost to themselves! The money raised helps us to make a difference in Afghanistan to a dog like ‘Joe’ who has no voice but ours here at the Nowzad Dogs charity. So if you are going to be buying something anyway you might as well help Joe dog at the same time! Thank you for making a ‘givingabit’ difference.”
