FAQ - FundraisersEasy fundraising for any cause using froggybank
Individuals, companies, schools, clubs, colleges and any UK organisation can raise funds to any legitimate cause. Neither you, nor your supporters will pay a penny out-of-pocket.What is froggybank?
Froggybank.co.uk is a community of online shoppers in the UK, where our members get paid for the things they buy anyway. Our members can choose to donate their cashback earnings to any charity or cause they choose.
Charities and fundraisers can sign-up to raise money for their cause.
Online Shoppers spend billions a year using various websites. Most websites keep the referral commission they earn from the retailer, but pay 100% of middleman's fee back to our members.
We partner with more than 1500 online retailers, supermarkets, fashion stores and service providers including Currys, Comet, Dixons, M&S, PCWorld, Boots, WHSmith, BT, Tesco and John Lewis.
With internet shopping worth more than £24 billion a year and estimated to reach 25% of all retail sales by 2009, the earning and fundraising potential is enormous. We aim to raise millions to good causes - just by our members shopping.
More information on our company can be found at our about us page.Where is the money coming from?
The money comes from the retailers' advertising budget. Online retailers spend billions of pounds a year on advertising. They pay referral fees to websites who refer customers to them. We pay this money to our members, which they can choose to donate to you.Charity Shopping with a Difference
Unlike some charity shopping sites, our site has the incentive for members to keep coming back to shop from more than 1500 retailers and donate to your charity. Our members can also keep some of the cash and donate flexibly.
This means fundraisers have more chance of getting ongoing donations. Our company has a proven track record of serving hundreds of thousands of members and sending them cash back payments promptly for 4 years.How is froggybank financed?
For administrative, hosting and other costs involved with our service, we take the first £5 of members' earnings each year as admin fee. This admin fee is never billed, it is retained from our members earnings. Since we pay 100% of commission we get to our members as cashback, we need this fee to cover our costs.
Since our company has multiple revenue streams and income from other websites like price comparison sites, we are able to heavily subsidise the running of froggybank at such low costs.How will we raise money?
