Regular Giving & Fundraising
As we are currently unable to fundraise through school events, and as we face additional demands on school resources due to the Covid-19 crisis, The Friends has launched a regular giving programme to raise much-needed funds to ensure our school is a safe, fun and enriching environment for all our children, and allowing us to plan during this uncertain time.
If you would like to help us in this way there are two main ways to do so:
- You can use the Virgin Money Giving site, which is so simple to use, and where you can also gift aid your donation – increasing it by 25% at no extra cost to you. (Please note that the suggested amounts are set by the Virgin Money Giving site - so feel free to specify any amount that suits you.)
- Or, if your employer offers a payroll giving scheme your donation is even more cost effective as it comes out of your pre-tax pay, some employers even match donations. We can supply you with a letter to give to your employer, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who signs up to give a monthly gift to John Ball will receive quarterly updates on how these funds have been spent to benefit the school.
Thank you so much for your support, it will really make a difference.
Did you know that lots of large companies support their employees charitable giving by matching their donations? This can apply to events where you have given your time to raise funds for a charity. John Ball Friends is a registered charity which makes it a suitable recipient to many company Matched funding schemes.
Is anyone in your household employed by a company that offer matched funding? Most banks, supermarkets and high street stores offer it to employees. We could raise so much funding with no cost to yourself or employer as it is tax deducible and make a big difference to your child’s school.
