With Patchwork you can show parents and carers what needs doing for your next PTA event. From a patchwork of images they can choose to contribute cash, time or skills to help make it happen.
Browse our many school event templates and choose a readymade patchwork to customise. Or you can create your own from scratch. With Patchwork you can ask parents and carers to contribute money, purchase tickets or give their time and skills to help organise and run an event. A patchwork of images shows them the things you’d like them to fund, make or do, so they can choose how they’d like to help. For example, if you want to organise a virtual Summer Fair, you could include the option for people to donate items to the tombola, take part in a virtual bake-off, play games to win prizes, or chip in £5 towards fundraising for some new equipment!
Patchwork is not tied to any suppliers and we don't hold your funds. Instead all money goes directly into your bank account via our payment partner Stripe so you can spend it when, where and how you like. It's free to sign up to Patchwork. We only make money when you receive yours - with a 3.6% commission on contributions you receive. Stripe applies a small fee on funds received. View fees information here.
It's super easy to keep track of contributions and offers of help. Names, email addresses and details of who’s doing what are recorded in your Patchwork account so you can keep everyone up to date and say thanks when the big day is over!
With customisable templates and a gorgeous image gallery, it's easy to set up your school event. The Pinterest-style layout and mobile friendly experience makes it easy and fun for parents to contribute, too.
