Fundraising for Schools

With school budgets increasingly under pressure due to the challenging funding environment, more and more schools are realising that investment is needed to identify and secure new sources of funding. In accordance with their charitable status, schools have considerable untapped potential to raise funds, in similar ways to that of mainstream charities. This may be funding from Trusts, Lottery and other grant-making bodies, events, crowdfunding, local corporate support, parents and other key funding sources.

Our fundraising services are designed to provide schools with the knowledge and expertise to introduce a planned approach to fundraising in order to acquire new income for projects, resources and learning programmes as an integral part of your school's overall budget.

Fundraising courses

Our fundraising courses are designed to enable you and your school to acquire the fundraising knowledge and practical experience required to secure new income. Courses range from introductory level for schools new to fundraising covering the key principles of successful fundraising; practical workshops to enable you to develop effective grant applications; through to fundraising strategy and how to develop this in line with your school's business plans.

Host Schools offer: if your school would like to host one of our School Fundraising training courses we offer 2 complimentary places for members of your staff to attend. If you are able to provide a room (with whiteboard or IT projector) for up to 12 delegates please let us know. Call Simon on 07900 905785 or email
