Ways to Raise Money
FOLs are constantly looking for new ways to raise funds for the school. Here we will highlight some companies that can be used.
The Giving Machine
The GivingMachine is a not for profit social enterprise whose sole aim is to raise money for UK schools and charities. Every year, your favourite online shops pay £millions in sales commissions to websites who drive shoppers to them.
By shopping via www.TheGivingMachine.co.uk you can ensure that any commission paid on your purchase is donated to the school. With stores like Amazon, Ebay, M&S, NEXT, Tesco, Sainsbury and John Lewis taking part with hundreds more, you are bound to find what you want from your favourite shops at TheGivingMachine.
You can join to become a Giver by visiting http://www.thegivingmachine.co.uk- entering your name, e-mail address and postcode and selecting our school as your chosen beneficiary.
Then, every time you shop online, logon to TheGivingMachine before you shop and you will make free cash donations with every purchase you make. It doesn’t cost any extra and you do not have to make special purchase to qualify.
You will receive e-mails from TheGivingMachine thanking you for your support and letting you know when the school receives a payment. Apart from helping us for free, the benefits of becoming a Giver include exclusive special offers from the online retailers and access to free fun giveaways and competitions.
