Ways of giving and support

Philanthropy is at the core of any successful fundraising project and we understand that giving is a very personal decision that comes from the heart.

No matter how large or small, every penny counts so if you are able to support Edge Grove in achieving its ‘One School’ vision there are several ways in which you may contribute.

A single donation

A cash donation can be made by bank transfer, credit/debit card, cheque or standing order.

Donations can also be made through our Virgin Money Giving page.

An ongoing donation

These will continually support the school and provide a predictable income which allows for better financial planning. Regular gifts may be established by either standing order or direct debit, either monthly, quarterly or annually.

Company matching gift schemes

Many companies will match an individual employee’s gift to a registered charity. Please inform the Development office if your employer offers this facility.

Legacies

A legacy or a bequest is a gift of cash, shares, or property left to others in one’s Will. As it is a gift given after one’s lifetime, it can be an easier, and potentially more substantial donation.

Giving from wages or pension payments

Provided that your current (or former) employer runs a Payroll Giving scheme, you can authorise them to deduct from your salary, or pension payment, a one-off donation or regular donations to Edge Grove School. Send the Development Office any documents required and once set up, your donations will be made by bank transfer directly to Edge Grove School from the Payroll Giving scheme provider.

Gift of shares

Donating shares to Edge Grove School is a very practical way to raise funds. Please discuss with the Development office prior to carrying out the transaction.

Increase your donation with gift aid

As a UK taxpayer, Gift Aiding your donation increases its value to Edge Grove School by 25%, at no extra cost to you. To Gift Aid your donation, simply complete the Gift Aid declaration at the bottom of the donation form. Note: Corporate donations are not eligible for Gift Aid; however, the donation may be treated as an allowable expense, thereby making a saving on corporation tax.

Resource and support

If you are unable to donate a monetary gift but can give support in the form of non-financial gifts, such as musical instruments, books, an item for auction, or your time to help with fundraising activities, we would love to hear from you. All support is gratefully received. Please contact the Development office if you are able to help in any way.
