Secrets to success for fundraising in your school community

School finance
In recent times, Anton Junior School has successfully raised funds for three major projects. Headteacher Tom Donohoe explains the key tenets of the school’s approach to fundraising

In the 12 years I have been headteacher here at Anton Junior School we have embarked on, and subsequently completed, three major fundraising projects. The first was for an all-weather pitch which we have had for more than a decade now. The second project was for an adventure play area with double zip wire. The third was for a dance and drama studio which opened three years ago.

We are currently part-way through the process of fundraising for our biggest and most ambitious project to date – an indoor swimming pool. While this is going to take a lot of time as we have to raise a very significant amount of money – in excess of £500,000 – we are confident that we will achieve our aim.
