Easy Fundraising For Secondary Schools & Colleges

15 April 2020


Get your fundraising off to a flying start this September with an easy-to-run lottery; there’s no admin, no risk and no fees.

Your School Lottery is well known for supporting the fundraising efforts of hundreds of primary schools. But did you know that we’re also proud to support a rapidly-growing number of secondary schools and colleges? In fact, some of our largest and most successful lotteries are run for the benefit of secondary education establishments.

Your School Lottery is an especially effective fundraising tool for secondary schools and colleges because it is a proven alternative to traditional fundraising methods. Once children reach secondary age it can be difficult to engage parents and pupils in event-based fundraising such as fairs and functions. Your School Lottery is a year-round source of funding that requires little in the way of input from the school. The website, admin and marketing materials are all provided free of charge by Your School Lottery, all the school has to do is shout about it!

In a recent survey of schools in our programme 100% of schools rated Your School Lottery ‘Easy’ or ‘Very Easy’ to run.
