In the next few years Brookfield School, like many other schools across London, can expect to receive less state income. This is because of flat funding, increased costs and the proposed ‘Fairer Funding’ initiative. This will mean less money to maintain and improve the school’s facilities and activities which are provided.

The PTA is committed to raising as much money as possible for the school, which is why we need your help.

How you can help?

In addition to organising lots of exciting fundraising events, the school has also signed up to two initiatives: ‘MyDonate’ and Easyfundraising. This will make it easier for people to donate money directly to the school.

Below are some of the projects and associated costs which we would love you to consider supporting. You can either do this through a one off gift or as a regular standing order / direct debit. Please see the letter at the bottom of this page. Any donation however small will be gratefully received. Thank you!

MyDonate

This page is for general donations and means money from people who pay UK income tax can qualify for Gift Aid, so for every £1 they give the government will add another 25p. Using the MyDonate page will also allow people to donate a regular small amount by direct debit as well as making one-off contributions.

Past generous donations have funded a fantastic and popular climbing wall in the KS2 playground as well as other play equipment.

You can make a donation to the school at any time and you don’t need to be a Brookfield parent. So if you would like to donate some money, or if you know others who might want to, then please go to: mydonate.bt.com/charities/brookfieldschoolassociation.
