  • ‘Inspiring, innovative and informative: FundEd is our go-to resource for new fundraising initiatives. Last academic year, we generated in the region of £15,000 in vital funds for the school including a £500 grant from the Institute of Physics for science week and an incredible £7,720 from our first ever crowdfunding project. Throughout our campaign, the FundEd expert team were on hand to guide us in the right direction, instilling a great sense of confidence and firing us with determination to achieve our goal. And so we did! If you’re looking to maximise your school’s fundraising potential, FundEd is your answer.’ Charlotte Gateshill, Governor and Chair of the Community Partnership Group, Camelsdale Primary School, Haselmere, Surrey (240 pupils)


  • ‘Since joining FundEd in September 2016 we’ve raised £88,500! We needed to raise funds to regenerate the school’s outdoor space, so decided to sign up to the FundEd programme. One of the most invaluable benefits is how straightforward it is to access the grants database, coupled with the excellent guidance on completing a successful application. Since joining we have been successful with five different bids worth £88,500! FundEd also has excellent giveaway prizes and we recently won a bundle of new books for our school library. Having found the grant search process and application advice from FundEd so invaluable, we don’t intend to stop at playgrounds but now plan to look into funding for library resources and other improvements across the school!’ Mel Fane, PTA Trustee, Our Lady of Lourdes RC School, Brighton, Sussex, (199 pupils)
