Fundraising

Our main source of income comes from the subscriptions our Scouts pay each term for their meetings, however we are always looking for new ways to raise funds to support the activities we do and pay for repairs to our hut and equipment.

If you have any suggestions for fundraising or would like to run an event for us, please get in touch.


1st Finchampstead Scout Group are always looking for ways to raise money in order to keep the cost of activities and subs down.  We have two easy ways to raise money for the group; Shop to Fundraise and Amazon Smile.  Both are easy to use and cost you nothing.  Please consider helping us by using these services:

Amazon Smile

Join AmazonSmile

If you are not already an AmazonSmile member, sign up on your web browser. Simply select 1stFinchampstead Scout Group as your favourite charity to start generating donations, at no cost to you.

Get the app (optional)

Download or update to the latest version of the Amazon Shopping app on your phone. You can find it in the App Store for iOS or Google Play for Android.

Open the app and find ‘Settings’ in the main menu (☰). Tap on ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone.

Shop via the web portal

Easy Fundraising

We are also using a great website called easyfundraising to help raise money for 1st Finchampstead Scout Group – again, simply by shopping online.  easyfundraising turns your everyday online shopping into FREE donations when you use them to shop with over 4,000 retailers such as eBay, John Lewis, Argos, ASOS and Booking.com.

You can also install a phone App and browser plugins that prompt you to use Shop to Fundraise when you shop at a partner site.
