My School Fund reaches £100k milestone
My School Fund reaches £100k milestone in giving to schools.
My School Fund, a scheme dedicated to financially supporting schools and families, has reached a significant milestone of giving away £100,000 to schools since its launch in 2020. But that's not all – the scheme has also rewarded individuals signed up to the scheme with over £200,000 in cashback rewards for shopping with participating retailers.
My School Fund was launched in association with ESPO, Sainsbury’s and Argos, in response to the financial pressures faced by both families and schools. The scheme provides cashback rewards to individuals who shop online and in store with participating retailers, with a percentage of the sale going towards the school of their choice.
With over 1,500 schools and 11,000 parents and individuals signed up to the scheme, My School Fund is making an impact in helping to ease rising costs. The cashback rewards have been particularly helpful in providing extra support during a time when budgets are tight. My School Fund is committed to expanding its reach and supporting even more schools and families across the country.
"We're thrilled to have reached this milestone of £100,000 being given away to schools, and £200k in cashback rewards to individuals. It's fantastic to see the positive impact the scheme has had in supporting schools and families, particularly during such difficult times.”
