DonateMySchool offers a fully flexible funding solution. Any school fundraiser, be that the school itself, a PTA or Friends Association, can choose one of two campaign types and choose their preferred service level.
CHOOSE YOUR CAMPAIGN -
CROWDFUND A PROJECT OR REGULAR GIVING
Each school can choose to fund an inspirational project through a single crowdfunding campaign with a specific target, or collect monthly donations with a Regular Giving campaign.
To crowdfund a project the school fundraiser simply selects a target amount and a timescale in which to reach it. This type of campaign is an ideal way for a school to engage its own and the wider community – even local businesses – in an exciting project.
If your school has a list of campaigns to deliver, then a Regular Giving campaign offers significant advantages:
1) The school (or PTA) receives a steady stream of regular donations and Gift Aid allowing you to plan ahead and fundraise for a wish list of campaigns.
2) There is no need to start from scratch for each new campaign that requires funding. The fundraising momentum is maintained.
3) It is flexible. Anyone can still choose to make a one-off donation to your campaign for any amount, at any time.
4) DonateMySchool can run a “Boost” campaign from time to time in order to top up regular donations, for example to get the next project quickly over the line.
5) Less work for you and the school! There are no Standing Orders or Direct Debits to set up and no bank receipts to reconcile. All donations are made through our secure online platform and passed to you each month - and we even collect the Gift Aid for you.
