Just Giving

Following the email from Desmond Burton, Chair of Governors, in Spring 2017 which so clearly and concisely set out the funding difficulties that the school is facing, and alerted us to the even greater difficulties that the school will face in the future, the PTA has been looking at alternative ways to raise money to help our children.  We realise that everyone is busy – many parents working long hours – and cannot easily give up time or be available to help organise charity events or attend fundraising activities.  That is why we have set up a Balcombe School Just Giving page which we hope will encourage donations – all of which can be topped up with an additional 25% through GiftAid (at no extra cost to you).

You can help the school through Just Giving in lots of different ways:

-       You can set up a monthly standing order – if every family donated just £1 per month, we could raise over £1000 with GiftAid donations every year, if you could donate £5 a month it would soar 

-       You can pay for tickets to events through our page – for quiz nights, PTA run workshops, fundraising events

-       Even if you can’t attend, you can make a one-off donation any time

-       If you are taking part in a race, charity event, sponsored fundraiser, you could link to our page and collect donations for Balcombe School

-       You can speak to your company about making donations – there are tax benefits for businesses if they make charitable donations and many companies have a designated charity fund; the PTA is a registered charity

The school, and the children, desperately need your help to continue providing the level of excellent, dedicated teaching and the high quality of education.  Thank you so much.
