About easyfundraising

Founded in 2007, easyfundraising is now the UK’s largest charity reward organisation. We are committed to making a difference in the world and our blog contains many examples of the positive impact that the £17million+ in donations has had across the charities and good causes that we support. We operate as an online affiliate, partnering with over 3,000 online retailers to refer shoppers to their websites. Every time that referred consumers shop online, the retailer will pay us a commission. We turn part of that commission into a donation and the consumer can donate to one of the 114k+ good causes that are registered on the platform. The rest of the commission we take as a fee, and where the business has generated a profit in the last 10 years, the majority of this has been re-invested back into operations.
