Fundraising – Brighter School, Brighter Future!
Welcome to our 'Fundraising Page' for Scoil Barra Naofa. We hope to keep you abreast of all of the past, present and future fundraising events!
School Development Fund
In March 2017 we kicked off a new fundraising drive, with the aim to raise enough money to get the school fully painted both inside and out! The cost of this is significant! We estimate we will need €25,000 to €30,000. We are so fortunate that the school and local communities have gotten behind this drive and as of September 2017, we are almost at €6,000 mark!!! Those funds were raised through:
• Private Donations €1,900
• Clothing Collection €281
• Red Day €304
• School Choir Fundraising Performance €1,000
• Tax Back on Charitable Donations €608
• Corporate Donations €250
• Table Quiz Fundraiser €1,270
• We are blessed to have a very active Parents' Association, who are extremely generous with their time and funds raised, who fund many varied initiatives in the school such as the school library, garden, sporting equipment, IT equipment etc.
• We have also been lucky enough to receive corporate sponsorship recently from CONTRACTING PLUS, who sponsored new jerseys for our GAA, Basketball and Athletics squads! So a huge thank you to them.
• Our Student Council are also active fundraisers. The proceeds of their READATHON last year went to school library funds. The funds raised from their other activities have been donated to Breakthrough Cancer Research, Temple Street, Goal, St. Vincent de Paul etc. to name but a view.
If you would like to get involved with fundraising in the school, or make a contribution in anyway, please don't hesitate to contact the office on 021-4842159. You can also click on the 'DONATE' button below to make a donation through PayPal, or with a credit / debit card.
The school is a registered charity (Charity No: CHY7112) and so companies etc. making donations can often claim tax relief against their donation. If you know of any companies interested in making donations to a charity - it might be mutually beneficial!
Unfortunately there are no extra grants available to us from the DES for these school improvement works. In the recent economic climate the money coming in through grants has reduced, while the cost of goods and services has increased. As a result, the school budgets very careful and relies heavily on the voluntary contributions from our fantastic families to ensure that we break-even (financially speaking) every year. The cost of extra school improvements projects must be raised through fundraising events and donations. We are extremely grateful to the local community and the school community for their continued support with this!
We will keep you updated on our progress!!!
