We aim to provide you with information for all types of funding, from in house events to grants and crowd funding. In a time when school funding is forecast to be reduced further, it is important to look at alternative sources from outside organisations or join together to raise the funds as a school or community team.
The Biffa Award looks to offer funding from £500 to £1.6million dependant on the project. To be eligible for funding, your project must work towards one of the following themes:

Everybody loves a cupcake and why not raise money by holding a Bake Off sale in your school for parents and the local community. Not only will it raise funds for the school it will also bring people together. Even add some competition! From who can make the best Victoria sponge to who can decorate a cupcake the fastest? Fun for all ages and an exciting way to bring everyone together for a good cause.
Bring and Buy Sale
Cakes, books, homemade jam, bric-a–brac and unwanted presents are all great items to sell on stalls at a bring and buy sale. Ask every child in the school to donate an item and then sell it on.
Back to Front Day
Silly and fun, ask everyone to come into school dressed back to front and ask for a donation for the hilarious opportunity.
Organise a Bingo event and devise your own calls for the numbers. Charge per game and even add in some extra purchase opportunities in the form of drinks and snacks.
We all have books that have been read and then put back on the bookshelf, but why not bring them to a book sale? If every parent and child could bring along and donate one book each, there will be plenty to choose from and buy. Not only will people have new reading material for a fraction of the cost, but parents and children can come and socialise over a good read.
There are a number of different schemes running within the large supermarkets which allow a group of pupils to come in and help out with customers shopping in return for donations. To find out more get in touch with your local supermarket.
