Fundraising made easy
We are always looking for clever fundraising ideas. Here are a few ways that we hope can help you and raise money for the school at the same time.
Did you know that if you work for a large organisation (particularly banks, legal and accountancy firms but also corporates such as Tesco, O2, Unilever etc) chances are you can help HWPSA raise a lot of money for very little effort!
All of these companies offer something called Matched Funding (or Matched Giving) as part of their corporate social responsibility programmes, where they will offer to ‘match’ funds raised by a charitable organisation such as HWPSA. For example, just by helping out for ½ an hour on a stall at the Christmas or summer Fair that raises £200, you could then ask your employer to ‘match’ this by contributing another £200 – thus increasing our fundraising significantly!
Ask your employer today if they can help and let us know!
If you shop online, please take a look at easyfundraising.org.uk
Register with the site, select Hinchley Wood Primary School Association as your organisation and you then have access to over 600 online retailers – pretty much anyone you can think of: M&S, Amazon, John Lewis, Argos, WHSmith, Direct Line car insurance, Air France (really!), Next, Boots, Tesco Direct... Every time you shop, the school receives a donation.
Once you’ve registered and selected to add easy fundraising to your banner, you don’t even need to remember to go through the main website, just go to the site you want to shop from and it automatically credits the school! It even has a calculator so you can see how much money you have raised. It’s just a few extra clicks, and it costs you nothing.
A catalogue for all of those fun things that you need to keep the kids stocked up with, whether you are making something from your imagination or a home made card for a loved one all the things you need are found here. Go online and order a brochure, using our source code SHI1118, don’t forget to do this bit, this is how the money gets to us. The school receives 25% of the money spent through this route.
