There are just eight days remaining in our fundraising campaign in support of Forest Schools via our Love Trees Love Wood campaign.
The Forest School movement is the single most powerful vehicle for environmental education in Britain today. With partners the Forest School Association we have been raising money to support more Forest Schools around the country. We are particularly keen to support new Forest Schools in urban sites and in areas where deprivation is high.
We have used a crowdfunding site Indiegogo, which provides ‘perks’ in return for donations. This has been our first fundraising effort using this method. We have been delighted to receive over £1000 in donations over the Summer but the amount raised to date is falling short of our target of £30,000. Not only do we want to raise more money for children to take part in Forest Schools, but if we exceed our target, the fundraising cost of using Indiegogo falls from 9% to 4%.
Thank you to every one who has support the campaign so far. If you are able to donate we would love your support. If you are unable to donate, please help us by promoting the campaign.
