For Parents

Help raise funds for
your school

Parents, Grandparents, Guardians, Carers – we all want to help those most important to us and what better way than with their education? Supporting your child’s school through FundStar will help them to provide the facilities needed to give your child a well-rounded education.

FundStar is a prepaid card which you use to purchase anything online and instore. Every time you use it, you make a micro-donation (20p to £1) to the school and project of your choice. You can support up to three schools and five projects at any one time.
