David Edwards, Director, The Education Company: ‘The Education Company is delighted to be working with Community Inspired on the FundEd programme. Schools are seasoned fundraisers, but the ever-increasing pressure to fill gaps in school budgets requires innovative support. With EdCo’s 25 years’ experience of working with suppliers, charities and other organisations, we immediately recognised that FundEd is an absolutely vital, practical and dynamic offering for schools. Community Inspired is taking the art of fundraising in education to another level, and we simply wanted to be a part of that exciting journey. CrowdFundEd is a particularly thrilling element of the whole programme. Providing schools with a custom-built crowdfunding module is such a clever concept. As an experienced player in the education sector, what EdCo recognises is the depth of knowledge and understanding of the world and art of fundraising that resides in the team at Community Inspired. FundEd is not a gimmick but a well-rounded package that has been put together by people who really care about supporting schools in this arena – we like that! EdCo will be providing full back-office services for the FundEd subscription process.’
