Match funding scheme: 65% of large companies have a match funding policy

Employers are willing to support their employees in their charitable work by matching pound - for - pound anything employees raise for beneficial causes within certain rules (e.g. only for registered charities, with supporting evidence, up to certain limits per event or per year). Beths Parents Association is a registered charity, any work parents do to raise money for the school is eligible for fund matching. Parents can claim by checking with their company if they do match funding by either:

1. Company intranet

2. Manager

3. Human Resources Department

Radio Beths: We aim to raise £5,000! 

We are looking to launch another ambitious project: running a school radio at Beths and encourage students to use this media channel to broaden horizons and improve cultural awareness in an inclusive environment. By raising funds with technological resources, we can provide exciting and engaging opportunities across the curriculum. 

Thank you for helping us ensure Beths students are given the best educational opportunities to develop their creativity and communication skills.

Drama lighting: Help us to improve our drama studio by raising £1,000! 

We would love to provide new lights and special effects in the drama studio. With new lights, we can bring our drama lessons and smaller productions alive. At Beths, our aim is to encourage students to engage in high quality learning experiences.

Musical Instruments - £2,000

We are very proud of Beths students who excel in the art of mastering musical instruments. The student musicians have been entertaining the Beths community via live concerts in the past as well as virtual performances during the past year and a half. It is the mission of the school to afford this opportunity to all students and therefore they require more instruments for equal opportunity for all. 

Thank you for investing in this cause by using this link: https://cafdonate.cafonline.org/17270
