You may notice some changes in this issue of FundEd magazine. We’ve turned the ‘Support’ section into ‘Advice hub’, to dovetail with a new tab of the same name on our relaunched website. This is where you’ll find ‘how to’ guides on all manner of school fundraising and indeed fund saving (see ‘Cut carbon, cut costs’). Advice hub also aims to support you in creating a more effective workplace, despite stretched resources (see Helen Burge’s article, ‘Stealing back time’).

Of course, we all know that not everything can be neatly categorised, and that certainly applies to articles about fundraising and building bridges across communities. So, in our Partnerships section you’ll find an incredible story of a multi-school collaboration to monitor air pollution that has been funded by a £5,000 grant from the Royal Society of Chemistry. And, in the Fundraising section, our art director, Carol Rogerson, has written a wonderful piece on ‘Why images matter’, which is full of good advice on how to engage audiences.

Our Grants section reflects a current trend for support to schools to be provided ‘in kind’ through expert training or additional specialist programmes, rather than simply financially. And our cover story encourages you to open your doors to alumni, exploring how former pupils can bring huge benefits to your school.

Good luck! Jane Hughes, editor
