Welcome to Bristol Grammar School’s pioneering crowdfunding site.
Thanks to the sponsorship of Hubbub, a company run by a group of three Old Bristolians we are very excited to be the first School in the UK to be using crowdfunding to assist us in funding the extra projects that help make the education at BGS so special.
We are not a wealthy School; right from inception in 1532 – when brothers Robert and Nicholas Thorne, the Bristol merchants, set up the School to provide an education for sons of merchants and tradesmen – we have relied on generous supporters to achieve our purpose.We have therefor established this crowdfunding site so that together staff, former staff and pupils, parents and the BGS community can support extra-curricular projects and activities for pupils – the vital elements that enrich their experiences in the School.
Donations can range from £1 to £1,000 so you can choose an amount that suits your budget. Every gift is important, no matter how large or small, so join us in making an impact at Bristol Grammar School. By supporting a project you will automatically receive updates about it and the progress it is making. You can also interact directly with the team behind the project by leaving a comment on the project, or sending them a message. Even after the project ends, we will keep you informed on what the projects are up to and how your donation is being used as well. All of your donation will go directly towards the projects you would like to support. Thank you for joining us in our commitment to support our pupils so that every one of them may achieve their goals and leave BGS as confident, compassionate and ambitious, young adults.
