Table Tennis England today announces a new partnership with easyfundraising, which will bring an easy, accessible and continual way to raise funds for table tennis clubs across the country.
Fundraising can be difficult in the current economic climate, which is why we have partnered with easyfundraising, a tech platform that will help clubs to generate funding at no cost to themselves.
easyfundraising gives clubs the chance to fundraise effortlessly through online shopping via an app, donation reminder or website with more than 7,000 brands including Tesco, Trainline, Booking.com and Amazon.
Claire Warner, Table Tennis England’s Clubs, Schools and Leagues Manager, said: “We’re delighted to able to announce our partnership with easyfundraising. We recognise that it’s a challenging time for clubs, and the easyfundraising platform provides clubs with an opportunity to generate unrestricted income without asking for additional donations from members and volunteers.
“Being unrestricted, clubs will be able to choose how they spend their money – whether it’s to kickstart a new project, purchase equipment, or contribute towards existing costs. The team at easyfundraising have offered their support and expertise to ensure that table tennis clubs across the country are able to make the most of the opportunity that the platform brings.”
Ben Harper, Partnerships Manager at easyfundraising, added: “At easyfundraising we’re excited to welcome more of the table tennis community to our platform, especially at this time of year when so many people will be starting their shopping for Christmas.
“We hope the table tennis community finds our app and platform a really valuable part of their fundraising mix for the future and we look forward to seeing clubs receive their first donation.”
How does easyfundraising work?
Big brands like Amazon, eBay, Just Eat, John Lewis, Screwfix, Etsy, M&S, Argos, Moonpig, Skyscanner, Waitrose, and 7,000 others want to give back to communities and clubs. That’s why they have partnered with easyfundraising, so when someone shops online with them, the brand gives back a percentage of what an online shopper spends to your club; for free. It’s like using a cashback site, but instead of the money going to one individual, as a collective – players, coaches, parents, and volunteers can raise for your club.
For example, Coach Dave is buying a roof rack. Instead of visiting the Halfords website, Dave heads to the easyfundraising website first and then clicks on the Halfords link.
easyfundraising directs Dave to Halfords, where he buys what he needs. Because Dave started at easyfundraising first, his club will receive free funding directly from Halfords. Dave is happy he’s sorted for his next adventure, and his club is delighted they have benefited from Dave’s smart shopping.
What’s in it for your club?
Not only does easyfundraising provide a continual income stream that raffles, charity matches and quiz nights are unable to offer, especially in the current climate, it enables people to give without it coming directly out of their pockets. Not only taking the pressure off those who still want to give; but also the pressure off your club, as you have a low-effort fundraising option that can last all year.
How easyfundraising can slot into everyday life
Because we lead busy lives, easyfundraising has built several tools to make it easy for anyone to support your club. For online shoppers who shop on laptops and computers, there is a handy reminder that when downloaded, pops up, so they can collect free funding in just one click. Or, for the shopper who shops via their mobile, the easyfundraising app keeps things really simple.
