My life in these times of school funding austerity just got a whole lot easier – thank you FundEd!’ Jo Marchant, Strategic Business Leader, Meadowfield School, Kent and Fellow of NASBM

FundEd stimulates that creative thinking through showcasing a variety of fundraising ideas and initiatives and by sharing innovative practice from schools in similar situations. It’s a wonderful new resource.' Robbie Garner, Business Manager, Mark Rutherford School, Bedford

 

  • “I keep all the FundEd magazines; they are a great income generation reference library. Usually with magazines I pull out the articles I want to keep and put the rest in the recycling, but with FundEd I keep the whole magazine.”  Hayley Dunn ACCA FISBL - Leadership specialist for the ACSL

 

  • “I have found FundEd Magazine to be one of the most useful funding resource tools that SBM’s can have in their top draw.  The hints, tips and advice provided by FundEd are second to none and In addition to this, you have the confidence you are working with individuals who understand the business of education and can target the advice perfectly.  I highly recommend it to all educational establishments, the first bit of advice that you use will repay your school tenfold!”  Russell Dalton FNASBM, Finance and Business Director - Pershore High School
