Support our work and create positive social change
If you’ve come this far then thank you! Our work relies on the support of people like you. We believe in the power of collective action and with your help we can continue to create positive social change by increasing access to creative learning for young people in Margate. All donations have a huge impact and we especially benefit from monthly giving to help with are ongoing costs. Thank you in advance for supporting our work.
Support young people to fulfil their creative potential
What’s it all about?
Our work benefits everyone in our community so we want to continue to develop relationships with our stakeholders to enable it to continue. We are inviting you to invest a monthly donation to Arts Education Exchange. As a charitable donation your contribution will be tax exempt and we can collect gift aid to increase the amount by 25%.
Our aim is to raise £500 a month through regular donations by the end of August. That’s half of our rent! or...25 hours of creative learning for young people a month! Every regular (or one off) donation helps us to maintain our vital services. Here’s some of our ongoing costs:
£5 a month could pay our mobile phone bill
£10 a month could pay for food and refreshments for young people
£50 a month could pay our internet and insurance
£80 a month could pay our energy bill
Alternatively, you could sponsor a young person to access our programmes. Just £40 a month allows a young person to take part in weekly workshops (subject to 6 places being funded).
If you are a business we want to celebrate our work together so in exchange we will:
publicly announce all businesses that support our cause via social media
publish your logo on a dedicated ‘supporters’ page on our website with a link to your website
Include links in our newsletter
create a ‘supporters’ board to be displayed in our new space
Send you an original artwork by one of our students
Your donations will directly support a local grassroots community organisation and make us more sustainable but most importantly, your donations will enable us to provide much needed services for young people from challenging circumstances.
This year, Arts Education Exchange has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op shoppers. Every time they buy Co-op own-brand products they get a 5% reward for themselves, and a further 1% goes to local causes like ours. Co-op members can decide which local group they would like to back by going online www.coop.co.uk/membership. We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us.
If you’re not a member and would like to support us, you can join at your local store or online at www.coop.co.uk.
