Raise money for your club with easyfundraising
A simple and effective way to help raise money for your aquatics club is through the easyfundraising website.
Once your club is registered with easyfundraising, your members, friends and family can all start fundraising for you, simply by shopping online.
Each time one of your supporters, who is registered with the site, uses one of more than 3,100 online shops, the club will then receive a free donation from that retailer.
Whether it's hotels, flights, electronics, sports kit, or even groceries, your club members could be earning money for the club.

You now need to drum up support for the club and you can start with ready-made tools we have available to you once signed up. Add your cause page link to ready made social posts, posters, flyers and handout cards.
- Keep banging the drum.
It's important to help spur on your supporters to keep raising with regular reminders and updates. Don't do it alone - all supporters have access to the range of emails & newsletters, Facebook & Twitter posts, posters and flyers and lots more to make it easy to remind everyone.
- Other ways you and your supporters can raise.

They also have an Easyfundraising App which is a free app for your iPad or Iphone. You can see recent activity and how much you have raised.
