Commissions and Donations
Matched funding from your employer - are you eligible?
Did you know that your fundraising efforts for FoWE could potentially be doubled by your employer if they offer a ‘match funding’ scheme?
How it works: if you help out at an FoWE fundraising event, your employer will match some of the money raised. Sometimes this is a matched amount based on what was raised at the event, a fixed amount or an amount based on number of hours volunteered.
Your involvement in an event could be as little as creating a poster, selling tickets for the raffle or serving refreshments on the day of the fun run - you don’t have to be the event lead!
How do I approach my employer: you could get in contact with your company’s HR department to find out if this is something on offer. Just a few of the companies that have provided this to us in the past include: Argos, GSK, Telereal and Trillium. Lots of companies operate a matched funding scheme: BP, PwC, Deloitte, Schroders, Barclays, RBS, Shell, Boots, Ocado and Whitbread are just some of them.
What do I have to do: each company is different but it is often no more complicated than filling in an online form with your company, providing our charity name and number ('Wood End School Parent Teacher Association' and 1055324) and possibly giving them a letter from our Treasurer to confirm the details.

Commissions on shopping
Do you shop online? Did you know that with one click you can shop online at all your favourite stores and support the school through FoWE – and it costs you nothing! Available as an App for your mobile phone or via the website.

Click on the link, register (select Wood End School PTA as your cause) and start shopping. It is just like your normal online shopping and it is an instant fundraiser for the school. You do nothing more than your usual shopping! <click here for examples of steps>
Access your Amazon account through AmazonSmile rather than the regular Amazon site. (www.smile.amazon.co.uk). The site still has the same items available and looks and feels just like the regular site but you get to help out the school as you shop.
You log in to AmazonSmile using the same details as your regular Amazon account. The first time you go into AmazonSmile you will need to set up your chosen charity or if you have already chosen a charity we would love you to click the orange "supporting" under the search bar and change your charity to Wood End School Parent Teacher Association. <click here for an example of how to setup>.
Once set-up every time you buy anything eligible through AmazonSmile you will be raising money to help the school.
You’ll need to shop through a Web Browser* for AmazonSmile – and you can do this on a mobile phone too (rather than using the Amazon App). For easy access; create a shortcut on your phone <click here for examples>.
(*Some smartphones using Android will allow you to use the App with AmazonSmile)
