Families and individuals

  • Participants task children with our Great Big Read reading challenge. Optional donations or sponsorship benefit the school or nursery.
  • Due to PayPal fees we kindly ask that donations exceed £1.
  • There is no maximum donation limit… the higher the total fundraised, the more books to benefit your school or nursery!
  • We coordinate a book fair - schools and nurseries benefit through book sales!
  • In addition to all donations, our community partner, Pop-Up Bookshop, donates extra free books on top!

Business and community

  • We talk to local businesses and our community to  secure sponsorship.
  • Community Book Fund donations are divided between settings to maximise funds.
  • Sponsors can specify which setting they would like to benefit though we encourage donations to benefit ALL settings. Take a look at our Community Book Fund page for further information.
  • In addition to all donations, our community partner, Pop-Up Bookshop, donates extra free books on top!

Fundraising fundamentals

  • Great Big Read fundraises on behalf of schools and nurseries to collect funds for new books.
  • Money is collected through optional sponsorship and donations from families, individuals, and businesses.
  • We are not a charity and therefore all donations are subject to standard transaction fees and taxes.
