Easyfundraising for the Library    

Easyfundraising is just that - an easy way for you to raise money for the Union Library every time you go shopping online.  And there is absolutely no cost to yourself or to the Union!  ... died just recently and many are mourning his passing.

What you need to do is to register for Easyfundraising  and then select  Oxford Union  as your chosen cause. 

Then, whenever you go online shopping go to Easyfundraising first and search for the retailer you want to buy from.  If the retailer is listed, click on the "Go shopping" link.

Whatever you order then earns for the Union Library the percentage donation shown.

It's easy - give it a try!
