Easyfundraising & Amazon Smile raise money whenever you shop online

Retailers logosWhenever you go shopping online, you can get those shops to make a small donation to either the Friends of Whitefield (FOWS) or the Joseph Clarke Trust thanks to EasyFundraising –  and now Amazon Smile

It costs you absolutely nothing, you simply sign up and go shopping online. Both Joseph Clarke Trust and Friends of Whitefields are registered charities that do excellent work running events and raising money to provide extras for students at the two schools. You can find out more about what FOWS does here and Joseph Clarke Trust here.   

Want to help? Of course you do. It's simple

1. Signing up for Easyfundraising 

Either go to  

and register. 

2. Then get the donation reminder

Normally, to raise funds you have to remember to visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk before you do your shopping and find the retailer you want to shop at in the directory and click on it. 

It's easy to forget, so  download the Donation Reminder browser plugin and install it. You might be quite rightly a bit dubious about adding toolbars to your browser, but this efficient little plugin works well to remind you whenever you visit a website that will donate to the school. It will even show which shops in your Google searches will donate most.

When you Google, the plugin shows which shops will donate, and how much...

5. or maybe you're a mobile shopper?

If you shop on your mobile phone, there are Easyfundraising apps for both Android and iPhone that make shopping a snap. You can find them in the app store

6. That's it

The sheer number and variety of companies that will donate is huge - there are over 3,000 of them. There’s more than just shopping - insurance, travel firms, hotels, utlities - lots of companies will give FOWS or Joseph Clarke Trust a small cut of the amount that you pay.

7. Signing up for Amazon Smile

The only downside of the Easyfundraising Reminder toolbar is that it doesn't work with Amazon, but that's OK because the company has its own 'Smile' scheme  that  donates 0.5% of what you spend to the Friends of Whitefield (Joseph Clarke Trust coming soon). 

Just visit smile.amazon.co.uk and choose Friends of Whitefield as your charity (Search for 'Whitefield' to find us)

Then, whenever you shop on Amazon use smile.amazon.co.uk  It's exactly the same as normal Amazon, except money goes to the charity use choose. 

You use Amazon's mobile app, we won't receive any donation, so delete the app and make a shortcut to smile.amazon.co.uk on your phone's homescreen.
