Do your on-line shopping through our ‘easyfundraising’ account.

How does it work?

Easyfundraising turns your everyday online shopping into free donations for Watford Philharmonic. Just start your online shopping first at easyfundraising, then shop as normal. The retailers will then make a small donation to say “thank you”, typically 1% of your purchases. There are over 4,000 retailers to choose from and so far it has raised over £28 million for thousands of community groups, schools, sports clubs, small and large charities across the UK. Easy!

You can register with the ‘easyfundraising’ site very simply by typing in this link to your browser

https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/watfordphilharmonic/

Click on the link “support us for free” red box on the right and register. They need only your name and your email address. By registering you’ll also be able to track how much money you’ve raised for the Society. Or go to the Society website, click on the Support Us tab and scroll down to:-

Do your on-line shopping through our ‘easyfundraising’ account.

Click on the click HERE link and register as a Watford Philharmonic supporter.

The easyfundraising web site then provides a ‘portal’ to over 4,000 supporting retailers, including most major supermarkets (Tesco, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s…), many travel companies (e.g., booking.com, lastminute.com), comparison web sites (including uSwitch, Go Compare), insurance companies (LVE, Aviva…), plus Amazon through Smile.Amazon.co.uk.

Because you registered with easyfundraising the Society then automatically gets a donation (typically 1% of anything you spend). It really is that simple.

Once you have registered and if you agree to the “activation link”, whenever you visit a website which participates in easyfundraising it will ask you if you wish to activate a donation with that retailer, so you don’t have to go through the easyfundraising website after you have registered if you don’t want to. Otherwise login to your easyfundraising account and search for a retailer and you’ll then be taken to the retailer’s website (via a special link) where you shop exactly as you would normally.

There are no catches or hidden charges! So get shopping – funds will be collected by easyfundraising and automatically sent to the Society’s bank account.
