School Notices quickly raises over half a million pounds.

This week’s crowdfunder is School Notices, the UK parent-to-parent noticeboard and school fundraising website that creates a new revenue stream for member schools. The business is looking to raise £700,000 and offering 18.92% equity via Crowdcube. They are already close to target (£660k at time of publishing) and have one month to go.

The additional funds will go towards expanding the team, advertising operations and enhancing the digital membership platform exclusively for independent schools, parents and businesses. ‘By initially focusing on independent schools, the business has been able to target the high net worth sector to maximise value for both its member schools and for early business growth. The business is now profitable with over 57 member schools and over 3,500 member parents,’ says the School Notice team.

‘Having funded the website development and business growth ourselves since launch in 2014, we are now a profitable business, with a proven model and are excited about the opportunity to scale. We have proved School Notices is a business that works for schools, their parents and businesses and we are now expanding into new markets with the launch of Uni Notices in Oct’16 and meetings with 5 schools in Asia in Jan’17 to develop the overseas markets.
