Friends, Fundraising and Donations
The Friends of the Steiner Academy Hereford is the charitable organisation representing parents and friends of the school (PTA). All parents and staff are automatically members of this charitable community organisation, and we invite past students, parents and others to become friends too.
The role of Friends is to support and aid the development of our own school community as well as other Steiner-inspired projects around the world. This work is carried out via social, educational and fundraising events, whether individual class fundraising or public, whole-school events. Friends has insurance to cover all their activities and public events.
The Friends meets regularly, usually on the last Friday morning of the month, in the Pavilion at school and all parents are welcome to attend.
The Friends Trustees meet termly to develop ideas, help to co-ordinate initiatives and plan events. The success of Friends relies heavily on everyone at the school getting involved, either in an organisational or supporting role. Find out more about Friends through their updates in the Friday Flier or at this email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Friends Donations Scheme
The Friends runs the monthly Donations Scheme whereby parents are asked to make a monthly donation of £30 per child per month, or whatever they can afford (– some pay more, some pay less –) into a ring-fenced account which directly supports school budgets, and helps provide children with a full Steiner education. To donate to the Friends of the Steiner Academy Hereford, please click on this link or email Friends using the email address below: www.charitycheckout.co.uk/1135990/Donate
We have a lively community approach to the fund-raising that helps to pay for trips, special activities, the funding of facilities and equipment. The community supports charities world-wide, particularly Steiner-Waldorf education projects.
If you would like to make a regular or one-off donation to the school please follow the link below. A similar system is being set up to raise money for other Steiner Education initiatives.
