Although we know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, stunning state-of-the-art facilities and equipment are almost always the initial attraction to prospective pupils, their parents, and staff when choosing an independent school. It is important for every school to invest but sometimes a new building or improved sports facilities can feel like a stretch too far.
Loans for schools from the bank can be complex, time-consuming and expensive, whilst the traditional process of appealing to stakeholders for donations year-after-year can result in “fundraising fatigue”. Projects can be delayed for many years, meaning current pupils may not get to enjoy the benefits.
How is InvestMySchool different?
When you partner with InvestMySchool, you can accept individual contributions to fund your project from your school’s own crowd in the form of a peer-to-peer loan OR a donation – or even both – and all on your terms. No other fundraising company offers this flexibility, and providing both options to your crowd could significantly accelerate your fundraising campaign and deliver your project, and the benefits, faster.
Your campaign can be up and running in just 24 hours, and by choosing InvestMySchool to help you with the fundraising, you set the terms for your campaign:
- Choose to accept loans or donations – or even both – from your community
- If you choose to accept loans, then:
- You decide the length of your loan term
- You set the interest rate you offer to pay your lenders
- You can even opt for a deferred or bullet repayment
What’s more, you also get help to promote your campaign to your community, including:
- A dedicated webpage with a unique URL
- Social media buttons to share your campaign with one click
- A bespoke double-sided leaflet to print and distribute
It is 100% free to launch your campaign and unlike other school fundraising companies, our marketing fee is all-inclusive – there are no additional legal fees or bank charges.
