EasyFundraising donations through Amazon – read on:
From the 5th August 2019, the way you raise donations when you shop with Amazon will change. If you search for Amazon on www.easyfundraising.org.uk or the easyfundraising App, you will be directed to AmazonSmile. You can still raise FREE donations for Cattistock Community Fund when you buy things from Amazon – you’ll just need to create a free account at smile.amazon.co.uk. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on amazon.co.uk. The difference is that when you shop on smile.amazon.co.uk, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees) to the eligible charitable organisation of your choice.
Please continue to use easyfundraising to shop with 4,000 other retailers for the benefit of Cattistock Community Fund.
You can also convert your Amazon account to an Amazon Smile account by signing into smile.amazon.co.uk and start donating to Cattistock Community Fund.
The Cattistock Community Fund (CCF) is a centralised grant-making Fund for the benefit of residents living in the Parish of Cattistock. In 2016 the CCF was granted charitable status by the Charity Commission and continues to make grants to local organisations, events and community activities whilst building a substantial fund for future generations. All the monies received into the fund come from personal donations or from Village Fund raising activities.
CCF was created in 2011 simply as an avenue to encourage residents who shop on the internet to use the easyfundraising website and app to earn money for their village at no extra cost to themselves.
The Community Fund quickly grew, receiving funds from many village activities in addition to those raised through easyfundraising. Its scale and scope grew accordingly and the concept not only of making grants but also of growing a sustainable fund for future generations has become well established. It has become the model for village support and many a village would be happy to be in the position the CCF has brought to Cattistock.
Indeed, this Website has been 100% funded by the CCF
Please help support the Cattistock Community Fund by shopping online.
