As previously reported, the digital fundraising and membership platform was founded in 2014 by co-founders Clare Reid and Gordon Dawson. It was created exclusively for independent schools, their parents, and businesses interested in targeting the HNW sector. The website provides the following:
- A digital noticeboard, which raises funds for international and charitable causes.
- Free trading platform for buying, selling, or renting items and finding older children holiday or gap year work.
- Direct route into advertising demographic through the website, direct email newsletters, and magazine, which reaches 20,000 families.
School Notices revealed
“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.”
Funds from the School Notices campaign will be used for the digital portion of its website, along with expanding its team to accurate growth, and advertising operations. In a recent update, the School Notices team stated:
“We’re really delighted that we reached our minimum target of £700,000 yesterday and we wanted to thank all those who have supported our pitch so far. With the new school term just underway, we have already enrolled new school members and are in advanced talks with many more, I get on a plane on Sunday to Singapore having been invited to present the School Notices platform to 6 of the leading schools out there and we have identified key additions to our team to take the business forward during what will be a busy and really exiting 2017. There is still time for investors to consider our pitch and we are here to answer any questions you may have. Many thanks once again.”
