WHY DO WE NEED SPONSORSHIP?
Victoria Avenue School is currently rated a decile 10 school and therefore the Board of Trustees and the Friends need to raise more money every year to supplement what is provided by the government. This allows us to offer the best educational environment for our children.
The Friends actively seeks a wide variety of sponsors and supporters to contribute to their fundraising activity.
Supporting our fundraising efforts will help the school raise necessary funds towards the main objectives that the Board of Trustees have set for the school for the year including:
- Ensuring we develop our educational programs and provide access to up-to-date learning facilities.
- Enabling building works to maintain the best possible learning spaces for our children.
HOW TO GET INVOLVED
The Friends offers a variety of opportunities for businesses and parents to support the school:
- Sponsorship of Friends events – a full list of events is listed in the school calendar
- Donate items for raffles and auctions
- Donate money to help run an event
BENEFITS TO THE SPONSOR
- The opportunity to communicate to more than 400 families in our local area
- Opportunities to network with members of the school community at events
- Branding in digital & printed school communications
- Acknowledgement on all related occasions
- Our undertaking to work on any other innovative promotional opportunities that will mutually advantage both parties
Please note that school will issue a donation receipt for all cash grants which will allow individuals/businesses to claim a tax credit.
