Fundraising Initiatives

 

Below are examples of our main Fundraising Initiatives however new money-making ideas are always welcome:


Matched Funding                 

Some companies offer employees the chance to boost their fundraising by “matching” the money they raise.  Matched funding (which may be called a different name by your employer such as “Pound for Pound”) is when your employer pledges a sum of money to a charity of your choice (in this case Sacred Heart’s Parents’ Association) relating to the amount you raise (e.g. by assisting at one of our fundraising events) or donate.  Some companies will match funds on a £ by £ basis and some will agree to donate a fixed amount.  In the past, banks, building societies, insurance companies, supermarkets, utilities providers, telephone companies and car manufacturers have offered to match fund however, 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.

You can support the school by asking your employer if they have a match funding policy - if so, it is very easy to set up and arrange, or if you have families or friends who are willing to match fund at 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 the Parents’ Association know. This could be a really helpful source of support for our school.

Summer Fayre

Our Summer Fayre is the largest event of the year with great stalls, fantastic funds raised and lots of volunteer help needed!

 

Christmas Fayre

Just like our Summer Fayre but indoors!  A fun, festive event that needs lots of help and support from our parents.

 

Christmas Cards for Schools        

Christmas Cards for Schools not provides your children with an opportunity for their festive work to appear on cards, mugs, coaster and gift tags but it also raises around £700 for the school each year.

 

Coffee Mornings

Funded by the Parents’ Association so not strictly a fundraising event but a good opportunity for friendly get-togethers on the last Friday of each month in the Studio.

 

Second Hand Uniform                    

Our Uniform Sales are a great opportunity to buy good quality used items of uniform. The sales take place at Coffee Mornings & at the Fayres.

 

Sponsored Learning

At set times of the year, children are given a list of spellings or number questions by their teacher to learn over half term. They get sponsorship for their questions and raise money for their school with every question they get correct.

 

Cake Sales 

Delicious cakes donated by children and parents are sold in the playground once a month.

 

Labels

Avoid your child's belongings getting lost while raising funds for the school.
