Funding success


Last year, we ran the text raffl e in


place of our usual summer fair draw, using the keyword GRAND as it seemed memorable and relevant to what is usually an important fundraiser. You can set your ticket price at £1, £3, £5 or £10 – and we set ours at £3. In the weeks running up to the draw, we publicised the raffl e in the school newsletter and through our parent reps. There is an admin fee of 4.5% for charities (and 5% for other organisations) but we found this worth paying because we saved so much on printing and envelope stuffi ng! What has been


really encouraging is that people have been so willing to give during these tough times – both by

donating prizes and buying raffl e tickets. A local estate agent donated a cash prize of £250, so we split this into £175 and £75 for the fi rst and second prizes. Other prizes included a Skywalk Adventure family pass, online vouchers, stationery and toys. Most supporters entered twice. DONATE texted us daily


reports so that we could monitor how sales were going, and post reminders if we felt interest was waning. The draw was automated and all we had to do was notify the winners and distribute prizes. People got quite excited in the run up to the draw and the winners were delighted when we called them. The raffl e raised almost £800!


It also highlighted the online platform and we received further online donations, on which we were able to claim Gift Aid (Gift Aid can’t be claimed on text raffl e entries). In the autumn term, we used


the platform for a campaign called The Grand Chop, where


our headmistress cut more than 70cm of her hair off and donated it to the Little Princess Trust. The school community was asked to text ‘CHOP’ to donate £3 – or donate any amount online – in support of her brave move. We raised over £1,500 for the school charity and made a further donation of £500 to the Little Princess Trust to cover the wig-making costs. Here, Gift Aid could be claimed. The National Funding Scheme takes 4.5% (+22p per web donation) if no Gift Aid is added by the donor, or 45% of Gift Aid (+22p per web donation).’ Lauren Clusky, PTA secretary, Grand Avenue Primary School, Surbiton, Surrey (650 pupils)
