MEET OUR EXPERTS


Spring 2019 Welcome to the first issue of FundEd in 2019, which also happens to be my first issue as FundEd’s new editor.


I’m very excited to be taking on the role at what is a pivotal time for school funding. Having worked in the education sector for eight years, I am acutely aware of the funding issues faced by many schools – and passionate about finding solutions to some of those issues.


TWITTER Follow us on Twitter for news, funding updates and offers: @FundEd4Schools


Our cover article - The future of funding – profiles the successes of some schools in finding new ways to address the funding shortfall. Social media is an increasingly important tool in fundraising and ASCL’s Hayley Dunn gives helpful hints on how to best use these platforms to engage with potential supporters (p23). Bid-writing expert Rachel Gordon identifies the most common reasons grant applications get turned down, and suggests how to give your bid the best chance of success (page 30).

Good luck! Jane Hughes, editor
