How to contribute to Woodford’s School Fund
Monthly gift aided donation
The most helpful form of financial support is a commitment to a regular gift-aided donation. An average donation of £120 per pupil per year (£10 each month), for example, would give us an annual School Fund income in excess of £100,000 which could then attract a rebate (under Gift Aid) of a further £25,000. A reliable School Fund income of this proportion would enable us not only to maintain our existing extra curricular offer, but also to make considerable improvements to the resources and the opportunities available. Regular giving – at any level – assists our longer term financial planning.
Single gifts are also, of course, much appreciated. If you sign a Gift Aid declaration, your gift benefits the school to the value of 125% of its cost to you.
We are fortunate occasionally to receive a gift in the will of a former student, parent or friend of the school. Whether bequeathed for general use, or for the provision of a particular resource, it is moving to see that Woodford inspires such good will in members of its community, so long after their direct association with the school.
