About We Make A Difference

We Make A Difference is an innovative fundraising platform for sporting clubs to raise funds 12 months a year at the same time as saving your members hundreds of dollars a year on their everyday living expenses.

The We Make A Difference platform also provides greater exposure, value and opportunities for sponsors to receive greater value for their sponsorship.

The platform enables your club to create a closer connection with the local community through our local area marketing platform.

How it benefits your club:

  • Members save money on their everyday living expenses
  • Shop online and generate 2% of every purchase back to the club
  • Support your sponsors and the local community

How it works

The We Make A Difference provides your members and supporters with access to over 80 discounted ecards providing savings at some of the largest retailers in Australia.

Your members have access to our discounted eCards saving them hundreds of dollars a year

Savings on Groceries, Petrol, Beer and Wine alone can save you more than the cost of your club membership.

On average families are saving over $2,000 a year on their everyday living expenses.

Your members pay $10 per month to gain access to the eCards with $2.00 per month paid back to the club. Spending $200 per month on groceries, petrol or beer and wine will save the member their $10 monthly subscription

Online shopping

The We Make A Difference platform provides your members with access to hundreds of online shops through our shopping portal. Your members are re-directed to the store website where they pay the same price as displayed on the stores site.

The purchase is tracked back to your club through a tracking code in the URL which generates 2% commission back to your club on each purchase through the We Make A Difference sponsorship.

We have seen a phenomenal growth in online shopping with people spending more time at home than ever before, people pulled out phones and laptops to do their shopping.

In Australia, online shopping growth for the 12 months to 31 December topped 57% YOY. More Australians shopped online than ever before in 2020. Around four in five households – that’s almost nine million – purchased online at some point during the year.

Through the We Make A Difference platform and sponsorship your club will receive 2% of every purchase through our online shopping platform.
