How can our PTA get started?
It's really quick and simple. First, you need to nominate one PTA 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. To get going you simply need to sign your PTA up, fill in the details on the registration page, which include your PTA-UK membership number, school postcode, an email address and your PTA's details. 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.
What if our PTA is already using easyfundraising.org.uk?
Well done if you are… and we are sure you will agree it's great. As you're a member of PTA-UK you will now get more support to help spread the word and sign up more parents. Your fundraising page may look a bit different from now on but other than that you can carry on using the site as you normally have been. Go to easyfundraising.org.uk/start-shopping/pta for more details.

Can our PTA really raise money that easily?
The answer to this is undoubtedly yes. easyfundraising.org.uk has told us that the average supporter raises donations to the value of £32 a year. In addition, easyfundraising.org.uk knows that some canny individuals have raised thousands for their chosen cause by buying online for business supplies. Success is really dependent on how many people your PTA can get shopping online via easyfundraising.org.uk and selecting your PTA as their chosen cause. If you can get just 30 parents supporting your PTA this will generate just under £1,000 for your PTA - money for doing nothing!
