Easyfundraising is a shopping directory listing some of your favourite online stores including Amazon, Next, Debenhams, John Lewis, Toys R Us and over 2000 others. Just use the links on the easyfundraising site whenever you shop online and, at no extra cost to you, we’ll receive a donation of up to 15% from every purchase you make. It really is that simple.

It’s completely free to register and you won’t pay a penny more for your shopping when you use the easyfundraising site. In fact you can even save money as many retailers offer discounts, special offers and even ‘e-vouchers’ exclusive to easyfundraising.

If you shop online anyway then why not raise valuable extra funds for us by using this fantastic scheme. All you need to do is click here and when you register, select The Promise (with a space) as the organisation you wish to support.




This is a charity share donation scheme, which makes it easy for people to give any number of shares to charity. They specialise in accepting small holdings of shares, particularly those which are not worth selling, because that would cost more than they are worth.

They also help people with larger gifts of shares for their favourite charities. For details go to sharegift

We can’t nominate ourselves, but anyone who donates shares in this way can say which organisation they want the money to go to.

Reduce your Phonebill with ThePromise

We are now registered with telephone service Affinicom, which offers subscribers telephone calls at much lower rates than BT and donates a percentage of the saving to the ThePromise. So you get cheaper bills, and the ThePromise receives a donation… Download the Affinicom leaflet to find out how.

Give As You Earn

Donating directly from your monthly salary is a tax efficient way of donating toThePromise, and it happens automatically once you have set it up so you never need to think about it! Please get in touch with us if you would like to donate in this way.


Individual Fundraising

We have individuals all over the country who are engaging in all sorts of weird and wonderful fundraising activities to raise money for us! People such as Ed Snape who raised £135 through the northern rock cyclone bike ride and Louise Bryant who held a Swishing event to raise funds for us.  If you or a group of friends would like to support us but don’t know where to start, please just get in touch with us at
