Generating more income with Pebble

It’s a common misconception that grant funding is an option available only to registered charities. That leaves many schools unaware that there is £1.5 billion available to them in grant funding. From small pots of money to fund a daily breakfast club through to large grants for development of new sporting facilities. Fundraising in general is a grey area for most schools and grant funding in particular, is something that goes greatly untapped.

Although schools can do a great job of raising funds through non-uniform days and bake sales, these funds usually go to another charity. The reality is that schools could use these opportunities to raise funds for themselves.

Then there’s the power of the PTA. Their fundraising potential is second to none. A well-managed, motivated PTA is a fundraising force to be reckoned with. However, a huge number of schools don’t make the most of this amazing resource.

So, what is stopping schools from utilising what’s on their doorstep and making some money? Time, mostly. Having the resources to hand to help you achieve your fundraising goals plays a big part too. Then there’s knowledge. Knowing what you can do to raise funds and how to do it is the first step, right?

During 2014, Pebble is changing the way that it supports schools to access additional funding. We’ll show you what you can achieve within any timeframe – be it 5 free minutes or 5 whole days. So, as well as keeping schools updated with all of the grants available to them and how to apply for these, we’ll also be providing robust advice, workshops, resources and support on other ways your school can generate income too.

In 2014 and beyond, can your school really afford not to be making money?
