EasyFundraising EasyFundraising provides a very easy way to raise money for Sciennes every time you shop on-line. If you do your internet shopping via EasyFundraising, participating retailers make a small donation (usually a small percentage of the sale price) to Sciennes PTA every time you make a purchase. All you have to do is go onto the EasyFundraising website to search for retailers rather than using Google (or any other search engine). If you find the retailer you want, EasyFundraising directs you straight to the retailer’s site and you then shop as normal, with a donation being made automatically once you’ve made your purchase. It doesn’t cost you a penny and with EasyFundraising and the new Find & Remind Toolbar, you only have to do the following ONCE and all your future online purchases from participating retailers will earn money for Sciennes PTA. Once you know how to use it, the only difficult thing is to remember to use it! Our guide takes you through the process of setting up to use EasyFundraising and the steps that you can take to ensure you get your EasyFundraising donation every time you shop.
