InvestMySchool enables independent schools to harness the power of crowdfunding to source both loans and donations from their own “crowd”, including parents, alumni and the wider school community to help fund current and new development projects.

What is crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is just the process of appealing to a crowd of people who each contribute a smaller amount of money that adds up to the total amount required for your project.

We think that every independent school should be able to choose to raise funds with a donation campaign or an affordable school loan – or a combination of both – on flexible terms that suit them.

1. REGISTER

Decide how you would like to raise funds for your project. If you choose to accept loans from your crowd, then you get a “quick quote” for a school loan using our simple calculator or just sign-up straight away to get your campaign underway. It’s free and easy.

2. TELL US ABOUT YOUR FUNDING REQUEST

Tell us how much you are seeking to raise, how you will accept contributions, and the terms that you are offering your lenders on any school loan part.

3. TELL US ABOUT YOUR SCHOOL AND THE PROJECT THAT YOU ARE SEEKING TO FINANCE

Upload details of your project, relevant images and even a video to communicate your goals to your community.

4. SHARE YOUR FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN WITH PARENTS, ALUMNI AND WIDER SCHOOL COMMUNITY

We create a dedicated webpage and a bespoke email and leaflet for your campaign. This will include information on your project, the amount you are looking to raise and the interest rate that you are offering to pay your lenders on any loan. You will be able to see how much has been raised at any time.

Your community can share news of the campaign with their own network via social media with our simple “one-click” buttons.

5. ACCEPT YOUR SCHOOL LOAN AND DONATION PLEDGES

When your funding request is 100% pledged you will be asked if you would like to accept your loan and donation pledges. To proceed you will be asked to pay a small deposit against InvestMySchool’s marketing fee. Please note that the fee deposit is non-refundable. See the FAQ’s section for more information.

6. RECEIVE YOUR FUNDS

After our legal team have completed the paperwork, they will notify us that the funds can be paid out less the balance of InvestMySchool’s fee.

7. MAKE YOUR REPAYMENTS

Typically, one month after you receive your funds you will make the first repayment of capital and interest on any loan part. You can access and see the status of your loan and repayment schedule entirely online 24/7. And remember – you can repay early at any time, with no redemption penalties.
