If your school needs to raise money for a music project, there are different options you can take depending on the time you have available to fundraise and the level of funding you need.
Grants are non-repayable sums of money,  so they do not have to be paid back. They are usually a form of restricted funding, which means that the money must be used for the specific purpose for which it was donated. Find out about key terms you are likely to come across.

Fundraising events - Part 2
Fundraising events, such as summer fetes and themed nights, can be enjoyed by students, staff and members of the local community. They are fun events that people look forward to and that provide an opportunity to relax, socialise and (depending on the occasion) enjoy a range of attractions, entertainment and sometimes food too. While fundraisers can be a good earner for the school, they also give something back to supporters.

The cost of school outings, educational visits, day trips, residentials (including trips abroad) and other activities that take place beyond the school grounds can vary from a few pounds to thousands of pounds. The good news is that there are a number of grants available to help schools meet these costs, as well as competitions, resources and other initiatives to help you design the perfect school trip.

Fundraising events - Part 1
Whatever the event you are planning, try to be creative and make it as interesting as possible. If you can make the idea seem zany and wacky or put a fun twist on a conventional idea, then it is more likely to attract attention and support. People tend to be more enthusiastic about something that is unusual and different – which can be good news for helping to raise awareness about both the cause and the school. Here are some more unusual examples of fundraising events:
