Is your PTA a lucky winner of a £50 donation?
They are all going to make fantastic use of their prizes, as well as the free funding they are earning through the easyfundraising site. Through everyday online spending, easyfundraising allows PTAs to provide the children in their schools with new equipment, arts and crafts, books, days out, school discos, as well as improving the school facilities, and more. They do this by working with over 6,000 online retailers who want to give a little back. As an inclusive fundraising solution, it means parents of all socio-economic backgrounds can support your efforts as the free funding comes directly from the retailer and doesn’t cost you or your parents anything at all.
All PTAs are welcome to join easyfundraising and is an ideal fundraising solution for every school. Ailsa Wakley from Friends of The Norwood School told us, “In our local primary school, we raised thousands through easyfundraising, and we hope to replicate this success in our secondary school too. Not only via parents and carers but also through larger school purchases as well.”
A huge part of making your fundraising a success is getting parents and carers involved; Ailsa continued, “We put posters around the school, and we promote easyfundraising across all our social media channels and year WhatsApp groups. We will also ask parents to sign up at events when we are face-to-face.”
Yeoford Community Primary PTA has also had great success from parents getting involved, “easyfundraising has been a great way to earn extra money while our members, parents, and people in the wider school community shop online. It was really easy to set up and very easy to share, so we have been able to get lots of people to join,” commented Helen Ticehurst.
To get your PTA involved and earning, sign up today. As you go through the registration process, you can book a 1–2‑1 support call with the easyfundraising team so you can get advice from the experts on how to get started and the best ways to involve your school community. Also, as part of the easyfundraising community, you get exclusive access to competitions like these, webinars, workshops, and more. Don’t miss out.
