The Gildredge House Foundation was set up in 2014 as an independent charity to provide funding and other support to Gildredge House. The aim was to raise funds for capital projects, student bursaries and extra-curricular opportunities.
The School Lottery has been successful in raising several thousand pounds and we would like to thank all the parents who have been supporting this.
There seems to be some confusion among parents and the community about having two separate fundraising entities so the trustees, in discussion with the school and the Friends of Gildredge House (FoGH), have therefore decided to merge the Gildredge House Foundation with FoGH so that there is one main fundraising arm for Gildredge House. FoGH will keep its name and add a section for capital projects. The funds raised by the Gildredge House Foundation will be transferred to FoGH and kept for capital projects.
The success of any fundraising is dependent on the involvement and support of the community. We are fortunate that Gildredge House is a large community and parents should be able to make a significant difference by participating in fundraising. FoGH has a track record of being active and successful in providing extras for the school. We hope that parents are keen to contribute towards an enriched education for their children, and much needed capital projects, and will support FoGH in whatever way they can.
On behalf of the trustees, I would like to thank all the parents and community members who founded and supported the Gildredge House Foundation over the years.
