Donate when you shop online

As a registered charity, SFCS relies on donations and fundraising efforts to provide our extensive support services to our families. As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, those support services are more important than ever.

We’re always delighted to receive donations from our supporters. But did you know you can support SFCS when you shop online, and it won’t cost you a penny!  Every time you enjoy some online retail therapy, you can support SFCS by signing up with two simple fundraising schemes.

 

EasyFundraising

EasyFundraising is the UK’s biggest charity fundraising website. It’s simple to use and it’s free. The website turns your everyday online shopping into donations for SFCS, at no cost to you.

EasyFundraising is partnered with around 4,400 retailers, including department stores, holiday booking sites, and price comparison websites.  All you have to do is visit your favourite retailers through the Easyfundraising website and shop as normal. Once you’ve made a purchase the retailer will then make a small donation to SFCS to say “thank you”. Find out more about how Easyfundraising works and how easy it is to support us.

Alternatively, if you browse the internet using Google Chrome, you can add a browser extension which will flag up a little ‘EasyFundraising reminder’ every time you visit an eligible online store. So you don’t have to remember which retailers EasyFundraising works with and SFCS will never miss out on a donation! Find out more here.

 

Amazon Smile

We are also registered with AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile offers the same products, prices and shopping features as Amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. It may not sound much, but it all adds up! Sign up to support SFCS here.

As with Easy Fundraising, you can also use a browser extension called SmileMatic, which automatically re-directs you to the Amazon Smile page every time you go to visit the Amazon site – so you don’t have to worry about forgetting each time you need to shop. It only takes a few seconds – find out more here.

 

We hope you’ll feel able to sign up to one or both of these simple schemes, and support SFCS for free! Thank you for your support – every little helps.
