Bring your community together online, raise money and have fun

Whether it's a virtual summer fair, a school garden project, or a second hand uniform sale there's no limit to the fundraising events that you can plan, organise and raise money for with Patchwork. See our exciting range of school event and fundraising templates here.

Invite people to fund, make and do - and bring your PTA events to life

Use Patchwork to raise funds, organise activities and competitions, sell products, collect donated items and recruit volunteers. It's simple and fun for families to get involved and easy for you to keep track of contributions, send messages and receive funds securely into your bank account via Stripe.

Receive 50% of the Patchwork commission for your school

We usually make money by charging a 3% commission on all funds raised through our platform. However as a parent-run business we also want to support schools as much as we can so are happy to donate back 50% of our fee to boost your school fundraising.

Become an affiliate and raise funds all year round:

Encourage parents to go greener with their kids' birthday gifting and raise extra funds for your school too, by promoting Patchwork to your school community.

As a school partner you will be issued a unique "affiliate link" to the Patchwork platform from which clicks can be tracked. Each time someone within your school community uses Patchwork to collect money via a gift page your PTA will receive 1.5% of all funds collected (equivalent to 50% of the Patchwork fee).

Example: Sarah sets up a Patchwork page for her son Jake's birthday as he'd really love a new bike. She sends the Patchwork link to their family and friends and they all chip in a little bit of cash and buy a "piece" of the birthday bike, from £5 for the bell to £50 for the saddle. They can also leave a message and a photo with their gift. Jake collects a total of £300 towards something he really wants rather than ending up with a collection of gifts he doesn't need. He saves his family and friends time trawling the shops and helps keep plastic waste, unnecessary wrapping paper and cards out of landfill!

Even better, Jake has donated £4.50 (Net VAT) to his school PTA.

We've got 100s of brilliant group gift templates for kids' birthdays - check them out here.

Hear From PTA Organisers:

Eleanor Palmer quote
“It was so easy to build the Patchwork page and our virtual summer fair looks instantly engaging and attractive. We've been able to put together a fun mix of real events and ways of simply donating. It has really captured all our imaginations and we've manged to re-create that wonderful community spirit.”

Kate Frood, Headteacher, Eleanor Palmer School

Holywell School quote
“Patchwork has been really simple to use and the customer service has been exceptional. It has given us a more professional site than we would have been able to make ourselves and given us the opportunity to hold a fair now we are unable to host in school. We have included gifts we have put together ourselves, gifts from local businesses and competitions for the children. We have recently launched our virtual fair and have had positive feedback so far in terms of the layout and ease of use of Patchwork.”

Kathy Steventon, PTA member at Holywell Primary and Nursery School

Tufnell Park quote
“The feedback we've had about our virtual summer fair has been really positive, and we're making money for the school again when we'd assumed it wouldn't be possible this summer. Patchwork was so easy to use and there was even a school fair template.”

Jennie Potts, Co-chair of the PTA, Tufnell Park School
