What is Pass the Baton?
We call our Gift Aid Covenant Donation scheme ‘Pass the Baton’, symbolising how we work as an evolving team, constantly ‘passing on the baton’ to the next generation of Coloma families, ensuring further improvements and enhancement of your daughter’s education.
At Coloma, we receive minimal funding for our regular activities and are usually required to contribute 10% of the cost of new buildings, premises improvements and the purchasing of new equipment to keep up with technological change. To cover these financial shortfalls, we depend on the generosity of our parents to support the school, without which many of our activities would not be possible.
How Do I Get Involved?
Joining the scheme is very simple.
A direct debit is set up with your bank and payments are made each month directly to the school. The amount you give is entirely at your discretion and what you are able to commit to on a regular basis.
We are asking each and every Coloma family to kindly contribute £40* a month, per child.
As a registered charity, please ensure you sign the Gift Aid declaration when completing your form so we can claim an extra 25% on top of your donation !
What To Do Next?
Complete and return the Direct Debit mandate and the Gift Aid form to the school Finance Office.
If you are unable to set-up a direct debit, we also welcome your donation by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to Coloma Convent Girls’ School and sent with a Gift Aid form.
There is no need to supply your bank details for cheque payments.
Annual or One-Off Donation
If you are unable to make monthly donations, or prefer to donate annually or make a one-off donation, please send a cheque made payable to Coloma Convent Girls’ School to the school Finace Office along with a completed Gift Aid form.
We really do hope that you are able to join in and ‘accept the baton’ as we are unable to sustain our level of success and improvement without your support.
Already a Member?
If you are already part of the Pass the Baton scheme you can amend the amount you donate by completing a new Direct Debit form and ticking the ‘Revised Instruction’ box at the top of the page.
We really do appreciate every pound we receive from the scheme and the funds raised are put to use directly to enhance your daughter’s education and opportunities.
*We understand that this is not possible for all, but please support the school with whatever contribution you are able to make.
