Although fixtures and training are still on hold, running costs and overheads are continuing for a lot of clubs with many feeling the impact of COVID-19 on their finances.
As it still remains uncertain if we’ll see a return to Non-League football this year, traditional means of funding like match fees, subs, sponsorship and face-to-face fundraising may not be possible for some months yet.
But many clubs are using online fundraising platform easyfundraising to keep funds coming in at this difficult time – and your club can too.
Over 7,500 clubs are already using easyfundraising to help fund equipment, facilities, running costs and more, including Essex’s Tollesbury Athletics FC.

Tollesbury Athletic chairman Ben Rollo said: “Easyfundraising has been a great initiative for us to get involved in! The lads have really taken to it and even got family members involved.
“Any additional funding we are able to secure means our future gets that little bit more secure – so to be able to make money for the club whilst doing their regular shopping, the lads can really do their part.”
How easyfundraising works
With easyfundraising, your entire community – supporters, staff, coaches and players – generates free donations for your club simply by shopping online with their favourite retailers like Amazon, Sky, Just Eat, Trainline, eBay, Screwfix, M&S and Booking.com.
They just use the easyfundraising website or app to access these retailers and 4,000 others and when they buy anything, the retailer sends your club a free donation at no additional cost to the shopper or the club. It’s as simple as that!
You club community will be shopping online already and with easyfundraising, you can turn that shopping into much needed cash for your club.
It’s completely free to register and use and very simple to manage too.
