Did you know whenever you purchase online – from a weekly shop to a holiday – you could be raising a free donation for us? More than 3,000 retailers including Amazon, John Lewis and Sainsbury’s will give a donation each time you shop at Easyfundraising. It's free, secure and simple: sign up to: https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/marinebiologicalassociation/
The Marine Biological Association is a member of Easyfundraising (www.easyfundraising.org.uk). Working in a way similar to TopCashBack or Quid Co, this is an online cash-back service. Instead of monies being returned to the purchaser they are given to a chosen cause (the Marine Biological Association).
What is it?
A free secure service for supporters that offers a chosen cause a donation each time a signed up supporter shops online using one of the registered retailers (there’s more than 3,000 of them, including the likes of Amazon, Easyjet, Thomas Cook, Next…). There is absolutely no additional cost to the purchaser/ supporter – the donation is a promised cash-back/ commission direct from the retailer, which then goes to Easyfundraising and they deposit it to the MBA quarterly
Why sign up?
By signing up, a supporter is not tied into any contract, nor into raising a specific amount of money, or to use every time shopping online! It’s an easy way to support an organisation, and your shopping experience isn’t much affected – it’s spam free and Easyfundraising don’t make extra money by bombarding you with adverts either
