easy fundraising

Raising funds to buy vital equipment for the school - how you can help

without it costing you either time or money 

Our PTA raises approximately £20,000 each year.   


Whilst the fundraising events do raise significant sums, they often involve the contribution of many man hours. Every parent, however, could contribute to fundraising without spending large amounts of time and without it costing anything.   


DO IT BY SHOPPING, EVEN IF IT’S NOT VERY OFTEN AND YOU ARE NOT SPENDING MUCH!     


Try any of your favourite retailers - Amazon, John Lewis, Debenhams, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, M&S, Boots, Next -  they are all part of Easyfundraising. There are nearly 3000 retailers.


Shop via Easyfundraising - it involves ONLY 4 simple steps:


1. Go to: http://easyfundraising.org.uk
2. Click on ‘support a good cause’
3. Search for a cause: Type in ‘George Abbot School, Burpham.
4. Register with your name, email address and a password.  Then search for the retailer you want and shop away!

Once you are registered, no need for Step 2, 3 & 4 ever again, just Step 1 and you are away!


You can also download a toolbar that reminds you when a donation is available. Once you have done this you shop as normal through the retailer’s site and a reminder will pop up to let you know that a donation is available.            


If you are not able to download the toolbar, when you plan to do some internet shopping, go on to the Easyfundraising site and access your chosen retailer from there. That way you won't miss any donation that is available.               


Please don't put this aside as too much trouble, it really is so easy and you will even receive emails showing how much money you have raised for the school. One parent recently bought some garden furniture for around £600 from an online furniture supplier, Made.com and the school received £27 for that one transaction!    


You can also refer your friends and family and earn an extra £5 for the school. 


If we used Easyfundraising to its full potential, with all parents directing their purchases via the Easyfundraising website, the PTA could earn thousands of pounds for our school every year. Please register and help to make a difference.
