Crowdfunding for Schools

Donation Fundraising for Schools and Academies

Welcome to DonateMySchool, the UK’s pioneering company for school fundraising. We help schools and academies to use the power of crowdfunding to raise funds from their community, including parents, alumni and beyond.

Unfamiliar with the term crowdfunding? Crowdfunding has been established in the UK for over 10 years. There are four types of crowdfunding:

  • Peer to peer business lending – which is where a crowd of people contribute to a loan request from a business or institution. Funding Circle lead this specific sector in the UK;
  • Peer to peer consumer lending – this is where a crowd of people contribute to a loan requested by an individual. Zopa and Ratesetter are the leaders of this type of lending in the UK;
  • Equity crowdfunding – where companies sell a share in their business. Think of BBC’s “Dragon’s Den”!
  • Reward and donation crowdfunding – think Indiegogo and Kickstarter.

How does crowdfunding for schools work? Simply it is the process of asking the school’s “crowd” to each contribute small amounts of money to finance inspirational projects or contribute regular donations for on-going investment in equipment and facilities.

DonateMySchool enables everyone to join the crowdfunding revolution. We help your school to reach out to its own “crowd”, including parents, alumni and the wider school and local community to raise funds easily and efficiently.
