A free fundraising platform for schools (with match funding available for tech projects!)

Rocket Fund is a free crowdfunding platform for schools.
So far Rocket Fund has helped 250 schools raise over £200,000.
What they do
Rocket Fund modernises school fundraising, empowering schools to raise money from businesses and their community more efficiently. The company provides support throughout the whole process, from pitch creation, to fundraising, to sourcing the best suppliers for schools to buy from when they hit their target.
- It's free, quick and easy to use
- It's far more efficient than a bake sale! (Although they love cake, so keep doing those too!)
- They have match funding available for school tech projects (see their homepage for latest offers)
How it works for schools
- You create a pitch describing what you want to buy
- You share it with your contacts and community
- People donate
- You hit your target (woohoo!) Rocket Fund collects the donations and send them to your school/PTA
- You send thanks to donors and review the products to help other teachers in the future

"The team at Rocket Fund are by your side throughout the process of application and fundraising. I felt very much supported by the ease and clarity with which my questions were answered and the great dashboard that is created to support your scheme.
