High Hazels Academy in Darnall, Sheffield, are excited to be launching a Regular Giving crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to improve the environment and facilities that our school offers the children.
The reality of school funding today means it is difficult to find the money from our day-to-day budget for curriculum enrichment projects and inspirational moments that can make such a difference to the children.
High Hazels serves one of the most disadvantaged areas of the city of Sheffield: Darnall. Our families and our PTA already support the school in so many ways but we are unable to rely on parents to provide additional money for the many activities and experiences that we would like to offer the children.
We want our children to have the same access to the wider world through residential trips and cultural visits and enjoy the quality of equipment and resources that other, more privileged communities have access to. In this way we build up their cultural capital and break down barriers so that our children can stand beside their peers with confidence. Our children deserve the best too!
We have identified a short list of items and projects that we would like to raise money for, and we need your help to make them happen!
A sound system for our school
Books for our growing library
Additional PE Equipment for our sports clubs
Musical Instruments to enrich our music lessons
Breakfast Club games
After School Clubs
Outside Play Equipment
Money to subsidise Trips and visits (we want our children to visit London but the coach costs more than £1000!)
So why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is a great way to bring people together to put funds into the same pot whilst encouraging others to do the same.
The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks.
Please help us to make this possible by donating as much as you can and please pass on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. Every single donation helps.
To set up a regular donation, please click on the DONATE button. You can choose how much to donate each month and, where applicable, we can claim the Gift Aid, boosting each one by 25%!
If you prefer, you can also choose to make a one-off donation, it all adds up.
Thank you for your support! It really will make a difference!
