Annual Fund Projects 2024

Indoor Hockey Wooden Boards

"The new hockey boards will offer the chance to develop a wider range of hockey skills by utilising different training drills during sessions, while also offering the opportunity for more hockey teams to play indoors during the hockey season as a result of the improved equipment. This will ultimately allow more pupils to train at one time and increase their adeptness at the game." Jack and Georgia, Heads of School

"The new basketball hoops will provide the ever-growing basketball team with more advanced equipment, supporting their incredible talents and advancing their skills further. This will also provide a chance for more home games, which are hugely popular and supported within Blundell’s." Jack and Georgia, Heads of School

About the Annual/Regular Giving Fund

Donating regularly on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis is one of the very best ways which you can support Blundell’s, equally any single one off gifts are always appreciated. It’s simple to set up, and payments are collected automatically. A regular gift allows us to plan for the future with confidence. Don’t think that a small amount does not make a difference; if you are able to afford £2 or £20 or more each month it really will enable a child to receive the most important gift they will ever get.

What is the Annual/Regular Giving Fund?

The introduction of an Annual/Regular giving Fund is aimed at involving all members of the Blundell’s Community, Parents, Old Blundellians and other supporters of the School in its widest sense. The aim is to provide resources to underpin some smaller projects in addition to the Peter Blundell Foundation Bursary provision selected annually, enabling the enrichment of the Blundell’s experience for its pupils. The projects are specifically targeted with achievable funding levels and donations can be allocated to any particular projects under the Annual/Regular Giving Fund banner. All donations can be annual or one-off gifts, and are vital to support the school’s ability to undertake smaller scale projects. All money raised each year will be used within the following year. (See: Donation Form (PDF))

Why is it required?

The aim of any donations or gifts to the school under the Annual/regular giving Fund initiative are directed to provide additional facilities for the benefit of the School’s pupils, which are over and above anything that fee income could be reasonably expected to cover. These projects will encourage all to participate in support and will see early delivery of projects as soon as the necessary funding level has been secured.

What level of gift is expected?

Small and large gifts are welcome, whatever you feel is a comfortable giving level for you, all donations are most gratefully received and extremely welcome. The opportunity to give is very flexible with either a single donation or a monthly contribution made over full or part of a year through a monthly standing order. If you are a UK tax payer all donations can be made tax efficiently and attract Gift Aid, which increases the overall value of any gift you make by 28%, and if you are a higher rate tax payer, the cost is further reduced.

What will my gift be spent on?

The flexibility of the Annual/Regular Giving Fund allows you to direct any donation you wish to make towards the area of most interest to you. A full list of the projects are detailed under the Projects list for projects in this first year of operation and you can clearly indicate which of those projects you wish to support. You can if you wish, opt for the Development Office to allocate your donation, according to where the need is greatest, however you decide you can be assured your wishes will be complied with.

When does the Annual/Regular Giving Fund start and how long is the appeal?

The Annual/Regular Fund begins each Autumn and we encourage parents, OBs, Friends and the wider Community to respond as soon as possible with a view to commit to give before the end of that particular school year so we can allocate that funding towards a worthy project as soon as possible.

Do I have to participate?

No, participation in the Annual/Regular Giving Fund is completely voluntary.

How do I participate?

During the months of September and October, the Development Office will canvas the School’s supporters for pledges and communications will continue throughout the school year. A leaflet will be circulated with Gift Aid facilities.
