Although most football activity is on hold, running costs like maintenance, pitch fees and staff overheads have continued for many clubs. In fact, most clubs have felt the impact of COVID-19 on their finances, and with no official date for a return to grassroots football, traditional means of funding like match fees, clubhouse revenue, sponsorship and face to face fundraising may not be possible for some months yet.
That’s why we’re recommending our clubs use the summer to really make the most of online fundraising platform easyfundraising to keep funds coming in at this difficult time.
How easyfundraising works
With easyfundraising, your entire community – supporters, staff, coaches and players - can generate free donations for your club simply by shopping online with their favourite retailers like Amazon, Sky, Just Eat, Trainline, eBay, Screwfix M&S and Booking.com. They just use the easyfundraising website or app to access these retailers and 4000 others and when they buy anything, the retailer sends your club a free donation at no additional cost.
It’s completely free to register and use and very simple to manage. 7500 clubs are already using it successfully and we think it can work for you.
All you need to get started is register your club as a cause with easyfundraising then follow our 3 step summer game plan below.
