First and foremost, you can help by praying for the Trust and for Chengelo School. There are some helpful prayer pointers below.
One of the key functions of the Trust is to fundraise for school projects. You can see a little about how this money is used by visiting the About the Trust page.
Here are some ways you can be involved:
It’s easy to give a financial gift directly to the work of Chengelo Educational Trust.
The quickest way to give a one-time or monthly donation is by using our JustGiving page.
If you’re a UK taxpayer, we’d appreciate if you included Gift Aid so the Trust can claim an additional 25%.
Why not organise a simple event to help raise funds for the Trust? Past examples of events hosted by members include concerts, sales and sponsored projects. We’d love to chat about your ideas, so get in touch via the contact page to tell us what you have in mind.
Another way you can support Chengelo is to include the Trust in your will.
If you’d like further info about how to do this, do use the form on our contact page.
‘Easy Fundraising’ is a way to raise money for a charity whilst you shop online. You can register online here, selecting Chengelo Educational Trust as your chosen charity.
Once you’ve registered, you can shop online at 2000 retailers including Amazon, Argos, M&S and Boots, and the retailer will give money to your chosen charity. Just make sure you always use the links on the site, rather than visiting the retailers directly!
