How do I register my PTA?
To register your PTA, you need to nominate one committee member
to be your Cause Administrator. This is the person who'll activate
your easyfundraising.org.uk account, keep your details up to date
and access the promotional materials for your school. Your account
is all set up and ready to go. To activate your account your Cause
Administrator needs to click on the link below and fill in the
details on the registration page. Then, as soon as you're set up,
your supporters can register, search for your PTA and start raising
funds. It's as simple as that! http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/pta-get-started

Do all supporters need to register?
Everyone who uses easyfundraising.org.uk needs to set-up an
individual account. Since donations are based on what an individual
buys it is important that each individual registers so we can
separate each person's donations and pay you correctly. Registration is
completely FREE and takes just a few minutes.
Does it cost to use easyfundraising.org.uk?
No, easyfundraising is completely free to use for both PTA's and
your parents and supporters.
How do I let parents and supporters know we're raising
money through easyfundraising.org.uk?
Once you've registered, you can download free posters, flyers
and newsletter copy to spread the word to parents. The run up to
Christmas is a great time to promote easyfundraising.org.uk to
parents, when they're doing their Christmas shopping online. You
can add your school name to the promotional tools and display
posters on school noticeboards, hand flyers out to parents and copy
editorial for your school newsletter.
When and how are we paid?
We split the year into four quarters and total up the donations
at the end of each one. If your cause has raised more than £15 in
the quarter, we'll make payment around 60 days after the quarter
finishes. If your cause hasn't raised £15, we'll simply carry
forward the amount you have raised to the next quarter. The
quarters are as follows:
- Q1 is from 1 January - 31 March (paid at the end
- Q2 is from 1 April - 30 June (paid at the end of
- Q3 is from 1 July - 30 September (paid at the
end of November)
