Build a Facilities fund for the club through Give as you Live

12 Apr 2022

Following the demise of Virgin Giving we have been looking into new donation websites and have decided to go with GiveAsYouLive.com

As well as a standard donation capability including Gift Aid, Give as you Live also provide a facility to generate funds for future projects at the club when online shopping.

We believe we are close to having enough funding for this year’s projects (additional sightscreens, new nets).  Hence we are not asking for money for anything specifically at the moment. However, if we can gradually build a pot of money we will be in a better position for funding future projects.

 

Many of you will be familiar with the concept but, for those who are not, here is how it works: 

Give as you Live Online is an affiliate scheme, much like how comparethemarket.com and other such sites work, they get paid a commission by the retailer for sending traffic and driving sales to their site but Give as you Live shares the funds raised with the users chosen charity.

Give as you Live is a web-based product, meaning you can shop with Give as you Live through their online store or you can install Give as you Live app and shop directly with your favourite stores.

Each purchase made through either the store or the installed version of Give as you Live will raise money for the club - for free.

 

In order to shop and raise a donation using Give as you Live Online you need to do the following: 

Visit the website: www.giveasyoulive.com and create an account. Search for and set up Chalfont Park Sports Association as your chosen charity.

Whenever you are shopping online visit the website: www.giveasyoulive.com and make sure you are signed in on the top right-hand side of the website. Then search for the store you wish to shop at. Click on the store icon, then click on the 'shop now' button. This will redirect you to the retailer website where you can shop as normal.

You can make the process simpler by installing the Give as you Live Donation Reminder from www.giveasyoulive.com/install . Then you can visit the retailer's website directly and a reminder will pop up asking if you want to raise a donation. Please note this is for PC/Laptops/Macs, not tablets or smart phones. Please note, the reminder will not automatically pop up on eBay due to the retailer's terms and conditions. In this instance, please select the heart icon in the top right of your browser and click on the retailer to activate.

Alternatively, you can install the Give as you Live iOS app for free if you use an Apple iPhone or iPad. Using the app, you will be able to browse the internet as normal, and you will receive a prompt asking if you would like to raise a donation when you visit a registered retailer.

 

Our pledge to you is that any money raised through Give as you Live will be ring-fenced for improving the clubs facilities for its members – be they cricket or football juniors, senior players or social members.
