You can help the school community by:
- providing financial support to families going through a difficult time by contributing to the French Scholarship Foundation
- helping to finance academic projects and learning equipment by donating to CFBL Parents
French Scholarship Foundation
The French Scholarship Foundation (FSF) is a young and dynamic Registered Charity created in 2015 whose objective is to provide financial support for school fees to families facing temporary financial hardship. The FSF supports children of any nationality both at CFBL and LIL Winston Churchill.
Since its creation, FSF has received 25 requests; 18 files qualified for the FSF criteria and 14 grants were awarded to different students who, thanks to this financial support, continue their studies in the French education system. So far the total amount of awards for 2016 exceeds £40,000.
Each request is dealt with thoroughly, fairly, impartially, confidentially and with sensitivity, always using objective criteria.
Now, FSF is looking ahead and planning for new fundraising initiatives as acute needs have been identified to support families.
All this work is achieved by a team of 5 volunteer Trustees. The FSF has NO overheads; every penny raised is used to support families in need.
SUPPORT THE FSF – For all additional queries and donations please check their website.
All donations are welcome, starting with the voluntary contribution of £20 per year per family, which will help CFBL Parents finance school trips and outings, Radio Récré, CFBL Muscial, and many other projects.
You can also help them every time you shop online thanks to their Easyfunding account.
