Donate to FOSS
Easy Search is a facility brought to us by Easy Fundraising. This enables us to raise funds just by searching the internet. All you have to do is search the web like you would normally. However this is by far better because every search you do raises around a penny for FOSS and it costs you NOTHING!!
Another way to help us, at no charge to you, is to register on the Easy Fundraising website (click on their link below) and from there go to any of the many well known retailers websites and shop on-line. Please make sure you register to donate to Friends of Southgate School (NOT FOSS – This is another charity). Donations are then made back to Friends of Southgate School automatically. Usually donations are in the order of 2% of the purchase price, but many services such as insurance companies give large donations for taking out a new policy with them. So if you are thinking of changing your car, home or even pet insurance make sure you do it on-line through our Easy Fundraising web site.
You can help us even more if you GiftAid your donation to us. Please download the form at the bottom of this page and fill it in then send it into the school marked for the attention of FOSS.
