Supporting the PTA
We just wanted to remind everyone about how you may be able to help the PTA riae funds for the school in 2021. Thank you for all your support in 2020, we really appreiated all your help in raising funds for our schools. Further ways you can help:
EMPLOYER MATCH FUNDING
Many businesses run a matched funding scheme as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility Program. In other words, they will match the funds raised at an event if an employee was involved in helping to run the event. This potentially allows us to double the money we raise at events throughout the year or get a capped donation at least.
Many companies donate if asked, even if they don't have a formal scheme. Please check out your employer's policy and get in touch with us if you can help. This is a way you can make a huge difference for minimum effort! Click here to see which companies we know support Match Funding.
The PTA is registered with https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/support-a-good-cause as another channel to support our fundraising efforts. This method requires very little effort and it works by simply signing up and then going to the easyfundraising.org.uk website (or App) before going to your online store.
Every time you shop with participating retailers (there are over 4,000 including John Lewis, M&S, Next, Argos, etc) you will earn donations for the PTA.
There are no catches or hidden charges and the PTA is very grateful for any donations that you could raise just by doing your shopping. All you need to do is select Polehampton Infants PTA or Polehampton Juniors PTA as your chosen cause.
Similarly Amazon Smile also makes charitable donations on qualifying orders. Use this link first, https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ select Polehampton C of E Infant School or Polehampton Juniors School, and continue shopping as normal and the PTA receives a small commission.
