What we do

Rocket Fund modernises school fundraising, empowering schools to raise money from businesses and their community more efficiently. We provide support through the whole process, from pitch creation, to fundraising, to sourcing the best suppliers for schools to buy from when they hit their target.

The benefits

  • It's free, quick and easy to use

  • It's far more efficient than a bake sale! (Although we love cake, so keep doing those too!)

  • We have match funding available for school tech projects (see our home page for details on the latest offers:

How it works for schools

  1. You create a pitch describing what you want to buy

  2. You share it with your contacts and community

  3. People donate

  4. You hit your target (woohoo!) we collect the donations and send them to your school / PTA

  5. You send thanks to donors and review the products to help other teachers in the future

"An amazingly simple way to fund new equipment for schools." Ms. Brown, Ladysmith Infant and Nursery School

"I recommend Rocket Fund to anybody looking to bring a new dimension to fundraising in their school. Their support was invaluable and I can't believe how quickly we managed to reach our goal!" Ms. Williams, Cornist Park Primary School

"Fab idea that allowed us to get some much needed tech into school at no cost to ourselves. Had improved engagement and outcomes for children and also acted as a great way to engage parents in the campaign."-Ms. Stawman, Courtwood School

"Rocket Fund was a great experience from the very start for me and the children in the class. Staff at Rocket Fund were helpful and encouraging, offering advice and ideas to improve our application. It is something I would do again as we now have technology that otherwise we wouldn't have!"-Ms. Anderson, Dunblane Primary School

"The team at Rocket Fund are by your side throughout the process of application and fundraising. I felt very much supported by the ease and clarity with which my questions were answered and the great dashboard that is created to support your scheme. The spheros are such an important part of the coding experience but we would never have been able to buy any of our own without Rocket Fund. Great work, guys!"-Ms. Seddon, Prescot Primary School
