Make a Donation
I support Summer Fields because I much enjoyed my time at the school, I was terrifically well taught and made friends for life. I always describe the 5 years at Summer Fields amongst the happiest of my life. I would like to support more people to have that opportunity.
Regular Donor and Old Summerfieldian
We welcome all donations at any level. Every gift, no matter what size, makes a real difference.

GIVE A LITTLE, CHANGE A LOT
Maybe you are thinking that there is no point in giving a small donation – what difference will it make? But, think again because in a word YES it will make a difference.
Participation is the key to the success of any regular giving programme. If you can spare an amount each month whether it is £10 or £100, your regular contribution, added to others, will make a significant difference to the success of our bursary programme.
SMALL DONATIONS ADD UP
Smaller donations collectively have a big impact and regardless of the size of your individual gift, it will and does make a difference. Your regular contribution, added to others, will make a significant difference to the school. The impact of combined gifts from many donors is truly transformational as the following examples illustrate.
100 donors giving £10 a month over a period of 3 years could pay for a boarding pupil for a year
50 donors giving £20 a month over a period of 3 years could pay for a boarding pupil for a year
100 donors giving £100 a month over a period of 5 years could fund one full Maclaren Bursary in perpetuity
The examples above exclude Gift Aid which increases your gift by 25%
As a registered charity, we can also claim Gift Aid on donations made by UK taxpayers, adding 25p for every £1 donated at no extra cost to you. In addition, higher rate taxpayers can also claim tax relief from the Inland Revenue on their donation.
