Princethorpe Supporters Break The £100,000 Barrier!
The Development Office was thrilled to receive another regular donation last week pushing the total amount raised to date to over £100,000.
This fabulous total, is made up of regular gifts, one-off donations, and of course, the all-important Gift Aid, which can add a sizeable 25% to any gift.
Our supporters have delighted the Development Office, particularly as many of those who have been helped by the school in the past, have chosen to ‘give back’ to the College in order to assist others. Princethorpe is not a wealthy school, and unlike many others, does not have an endowment fund to rely on. Instead, Princethorpe carefully manages fee income alongside charitable gifts, to facilitate our bursaries and building programmes. We are so grateful therefore, when our friends help us to widen access to the College, to include those who would not otherwise be able to afford full school fees. Additionally, such support helps us to plan for new facilities which take teaching and learning to new heights.
Very shortly, we shall be launching an exciting capital campaign for Science, and hope that through a ‘Menu of Giving’ we will be able to offer every single member of the Princethorpe community a chance to join our fundraising plans. More news will follow shortly, and you are all invited to attend an information evening entitled Princethorpe – A Vision for the Future on Thursday 14 March. Please see the Flagpole for more details and to RSVP for the evening.
A huge thank you to all our supporters who have helped us achieve this milestone. We welcome all donations, and if you would like to join the growing number of those who already help, please contact Rachel or Alex at firstname.lastname@example.org
