Faith Welfare Trust has an excellent one-off opportunity to get an extra £1000 funding which will provide Faith School with much-needed supplies such as science equipment, computers and even desks! But we need you to help us to take advantage of this windfall.
We applied to be part of a national match-funded charitable appeal called The Big Give Christmas Challenge and, having been accepted onto the programme, we were also awarded £1000 of match funding. In addition to this, generous supporters have pledged £1500 match funding, so in total we have a fantastic £2500 of match funding that we can access.
Any donations to FWT made online via the Big Give website during the 7 days from midday on Tuesday 28th November to Tuesday 5th December will be doubled, up to a grand total of £5000, which will provide desks and equipment to enhance the excellent education provided free to children from the slum areas around Faith School, and even allow the school to expand.
This link takes you to the FWT project page on the Big Give website where you can read all about what the money will be used for and, I hope, make a donation! Every donation made during the special week 28th November to 5th December will be doubled until the match funding runs out. Please note, any donations made outside the special week will come to FWT but will not be doubled, so hold your horses until 28th November!
Getting £2500 of online donations in a week seems like quite a tall order, so we’d really appreciate it if you can help to spread the word to others, who might share our passion for breaking the vicious circle of poverty through education. Look out for updates on our Facebook page as the week progresses!
Thanks for all our help so far during our special fundraising year. This will be the icing on the cake!
