How to support your school

Easy Fundraising - The www.easyfundraising.co.uk website is a very easy and effective way to raise funds for the school through your everyday shopping habits. It’s a great time to sign up and do your Christmas shopping through the site. Retailers such as M&S, John Lewis, Very, and many more can be accessed through the site, and every purchase you make can benefit the school and help raise funds for play equipment and learning resources. Go to www.easyfundraising.co.uk and sign up today!

 

Amazon Smile - Friends of Birchfield School is a listed charity on Amazon Smile.  Simply start shopping at smile.amazon.co.uk and search for our charity. Amazon Smile offers all of the same items, prices, and benefits of its sister website, Amazon.co.uk, but with one distinct difference: when you shop on Amazon Smile, the retailer's Foundation contributes 0.5% of eligible purchases to the charity of your choice. For frequent Amazon users, this additional perk is a great way to give back to charities effortlessly. 

 

Match Funding - If you work for an organisation that has a match funding policy, any money you raise could be matched by your employer. Companies may match the fundraising total for an event, or for the stall that their employee is working on. Usually, the employee will need to supply them with a letter from the PTA detailing the date and nature of the event, together with the total raised.

We understand that the high street banks, building societies, supermarkets, and large corporations are likely to do match funding, but these schemes are not exclusive to the major corporate giants. If you work for an independent company, they may be interested in charitable giving through match funding too.

We would be grateful if you could see if your employer has a match funding scheme, or if they are willing to match fund any of our events. If you can’t help out this time, but you know the company you work for has a match funding policy, please let us know. This could be a really large source of income for the PTA.

This initiative could be the most effective way of fundraising for the school this year so if you are able to help us this way, please let us know and we can discuss your company’s requirements.
