One of the ways to raise additional money for the College is through match funding. An increasing number of companies operate a match funding scheme whereby they match charity fundraising undertaken by their employees. As FEBS is a registered charity we are can benefit from your involvement, however big or small, at any fundraising school event. Your participation might be, for example, managing a stall or helping with a raffle. Both qualify as assisting with fundraising. If you think your employer offers a match funding scheme, and you’d like to get involved please contact email@example.com so that we can understand how to comply with their requirements.

Friends of Ernest Bevin (FEBS) is a charitable organization which was set up in 1988 with the aim of advancing the education of pupils of the school by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education not normally provided by the Local Education Authority.
In the 2019-2020 academic year a group of parents and staff worked to relaunch FEBS in order to create a welcoming environment for families, staff and supporters of Ernest Bevin College and to fund raise for much needed items that will support college activities (eg library books, computers, sports equipment etc).
As the College faces funding challenges and an increasing squeeze on school budgets, one of the primary goals of FEBS is to raise money for essential equipment and enrichment opportunities. This will ensure our children are able to continue to enjoy a broad and balanced curriculum and activities outside the classroom.
