SPECIAL FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY
While funds last or until 18th November 2015, if you donate up to £10 to the school, Local Giving will match-fund your donation!
This means if you donate £10, Local Giving will turn your donation into £20!
All charities with active Local Giving membership are eligible to receive a maximum £10,000 worth of match funding! However — time is of the essence. Over half the Local Giving fund has already been distributed since it opened on Tuesday 13th October 2015, and the scheme will end when the money is gone, or on Wednesday 18th November 2015 at 5pm.
How it works:
Visit our Local Giving page
and donate up to £10 to the school
You can sign up to donate £10 per month for 3 months by direct debit and this will be matched in the future!
The match funding looks like this:
£10 (your donation)
+ £10 (donation matched by Local Giving)
+ £2.50 (Gift Aid – for UK taxpayers)
After a small processing fee, a £10 donation with Gift Aid means the charity typically receives £21.67! A £10 donation without Gift Aid means the charity typically receives £19.18! You can read more about the fees (https://localgiving.com/howitworks/matchfund). The school has paid a one-off fee of £60+VAT to be part of this scheme, so the more tenners donated the better!
Please spread the word!
Every year our students are supported through the Bursary Fund, enabling families to give their children the education we offer. This year we are aiming to raise £50,000, and Local Giving is just one of the ways you can help us reach that goal. Thanks to the Summer Fair and our Weleda Wellbing Day we have already hit £4835.35, and we would like to thank everyone who has generously contributed!
