You can use TOTAL GIVING to make a one-off or regular monthly donation. Donations can be made in a range of currencies from this online giving site. Payments can be made via PayPal, Credit/Debit card or by Direct Debit.

ALL the money raised by The Uphill Trust is transferred to Uphill Junior School for the benefit of the children, either to cover running costs or to fund specific capital projects. 

Funding priorities are agreed in advance with the School Director, letting him prepare the School's annual and termly budget plans. These take into account the fee income raised from the pupils who are able to pay and the anticipated funds provided by Uphill Trust donors.

The Uphill Trust is a NO OVERHEADS CHARITY that does not make any deductions for administration or governance. Donations received via the online giving facility are subject to a charity rate commission charge applied by the payment services PayPal, GoGardless & Stripe.
