How long have you been using Give as you Live?
What projects have you been able to fund with the donations raised?
This means a great deal to our school, it has enabled us to redevelop our playground areas to provide play equipment, wheelchair accessible routes, safety surfaces, a bike store, shaded area and sensory planting.
How do you promote Give as you Live to your supporters?
We promote Give as You Live through communications with parents in newsletters, school website and social media. Using the campaign graphics for social media and posters, also the QR code and Donate/Shop buttons for communications, posters and on the website.
Do you have all the support you require from the Give as you Live team?
We promote Give as you Live regularly to parents and staff, and find that getting people to make their first purchase through the scheme is the most difficult, but once they have done this they realise how easy it is and use it again and again. The online help and the Give as you Live team always provide a very professional service and are very helpful.
What the charity thinks...
I would recommend Give as you Live to other schools, it is a very easy to use website, and the purchasing of goods through the Give as you Live Online website is also simple to use. GAYL have provided us with the materials to promote our cause to supporters in a modern and effective way. We are able to run our fundraising campaign easily and efficiently using the tools available. The creation of the 'Donate' button and QR codes are a great addition as it makes the process even easier for our supporters. The admin reporting is excellent and makes claiming gift aid easy.
