Furze Platt Schools Association

The FPSA (Furze Platt Schools Association) is our PTA fundraising team made up of parents and teachers from Furze Platt Infant and Junior Schools. We run a programme of events including the Christmas and Summer Fairs to raise much needed cash for our schools. In 2022 we raised just under £30,000!

Get help from the company you work for…

There are lots of companies in the UK who will help to raise money for schools & charities. This money makes a huge difference to the FPSA. Banks & building societies, IT companies, insurance companies, supermarkets, utilities providers, phone companies and car manufacturers often help. The FPSA is a registered charity. The main ways companies help are:

  • Match funding / match giving - the company donates a sum of money relating to the amount raised by an employee (for example, the employee raises money by manning a stall at the summer fair. In 2018 matched funding brought in £3400!!). Sometimes employers will match £ for £ or they might give a fixed amount.
  • Sponsorship - some companies will sponsor a specific item or event. In return they get free advertising. For example, donating funds, providing food for a BBQ or sponsoring a stall.
  • Donations - some companies will donate prizes for raffles or silent auctions etc.
  • Time off for charitable work - larger companies often offer employees a set number of days off during the working week to take part in charitable activities, in addition to annual leave.
