Friends of Coldfall (FoC) is the parents and carers association for Coldfall Primary School in London. They’re a registered charity who aim to raise funds for the school by organising fun events that can be enjoyed by the whole school community.
In the autumn term of the 2022/23 academic year, they raised £21,348. This was an unusually large amount after a few years of limited fundraising due to the pandemic, but it shows the benefits of creating consistency and investing time in a supportive community.
Working more closely with your PTA and encouraging them to follow these practices could help you meet your fundraising goals.
This will work for you if…
You’re a larger school with lots of parents who are willing and able to get involved in fundraising and attend events. Coldfall is a 3-form-entry primary school, so has access to a large community of parents in a suburban setting.
