Many units, Districts, Divisions and special guiding projects have benefited from signing on to Why not try this for your unit or project, ask friends and family to join in and help you. It’s so eas:

How it works helps charities, schools, Guides, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online.

It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop, you raise a donation for your cause instead.

You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each willdonate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!

The great thing is it won't cost you anything, plus we've got lots ofvoucher codes and special discounts so you can actually save money while you help your good cause. There is no cost for the good cause either – our service is totally free.

How to generate donations

It's very simple - once you've registered with us, when you shop with one of our retailers, our system makes a note of your purchase, collects the donation from the retailer and passes it to your chosen good cause. That's it! No hassle for you, we do all the hard work while you shop as you normally would.

Support a Cause

  • Click on ‘Find a cause’ and select the cause you wish to support. 
  • Fill out the quick form to register your details. 
  • Find the retailer you want to shop with. 
  • Click to visit the retailer, then shop as you normally would. 
  • Your donation will be shown in your easyfundraising account within 30 days.

Register a cause: i.e. your Guide Unit

Fill out the cause registration form including contact details and where we can send the money you raise!

We'll need to do a few important checks at our end to make sure your cause is genuine (sorry but we have to ask!).

As soon as we're happy you can start raising funds through your own shopping plus we’ll give you all the tools you need to let your potential supporters know about us.

We send cheques out each quarter so once you've raised £15 or more, we'll send your first cheque! If you don't quite raise £15, it's rolled over to the next month. You can also choose to be paid via JustGiving, if you have an account with them. Extracted from:
