The Keep It Fox Fund (KIFF) is a way for parents and the community to supplement and stabilise Fox Primary School’s operating budget through voluntary monthly or one-off donations. In the face of the ongoing reduction on schools budgets, these donations are critical for Fox Primary School to maintain the staffing levels, environment and educational opportunities our kids enjoy.


One-off or regular monthly donations can be set up online via the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) platform using the link below.


Payroll Giving enables employees to donate to a registered charity with pre-tax money. If your employer offers Payroll Giving (also referred to as ‘workplace giving’) your employer can help you set this up and contact Fox Primary School for details required.


Match funding is a straightforward concept. It involves an employer agreeing to match, or partially match a number of donations to a charity or cause. If your employer offers this please let them know about your donations to Keep it Fox Fund.

KIFF falls under Fox’s parent organisation, the Fox School Association (FSA), which is a registered charity (Charity No. 1178799)

FAQs about KIFF:

Is KIFF a registered charity?

KIFF falls under Fox’s parent organisation, the Fox School Association (FSA), which is a registered charity (Charity No. 1178799). Because it is part of a registered charity, donations are eligible for tax savings – be this through Gift Aid or Payroll Giving. In addition this also allows for employer match funding.

Why is KIFF separated from the FSA activities?

KIFF’s purpose is to support Fox in maintaining the staffing levels, the environment and educational opportunities Fox Primary School pupils enjoy. The funds are transferred to Fox Primary School and the governing body will decide how best to deploy these funds.

The FSA is a community minded association which organises events and social gatherings. Within these events there are opportunities to raise funds. These funds are most often used to enrich the facilities and experience of children at Fox Primary School, such as theatre trips, music workshops, library books, technology upgrades, etc. The parents decide annually how these funds are used.

Who donates to KIFF?

Anyone can donate to KIFF. Most donors are current Fox parents, though sometimes alumni parents, grandparents or others make contributions as well. In addition, some employers offer matching programs for charitable giving and in that way contribute to KIFF.

As a school community, our goal this year is 100% participation among Fox families – every contribution counts! This goal reflects the fact that KIFF benefits all children at Fox Primary School and we all share the common goal of providing the best possible education for our kids.

How can I donate to KIFF?

Donations in any amount can be made as a recurring direct debit or as one-off payments here:

If you do not want to donate online, please contact the school office to discuss other ways to donate.

How is KIFF money used?

All money raised through KIFF is transferred to Fox Primary School and is then used at the discretion of the school’s administration within its operating budget. Given that roughly 80% of Fox’s costs are staffing costs, most (if not all) of the money raised by KIFF goes to paying teacher salaries, primarily for additional Teaching Assistants and Specialist Teachers.

For example, money raised during the school year will fund additional classroom teaching assistants and contribute to funding specialist teachers in PE, art, music, etc.

Fox is a state school. Why do we need KIFF?

The implementation of the National Funding Formula and the ongoing reduction in school funding means a significant decrease in per-pupil government funding. Without additional funds, Fox Primary School will not be able to maintain its current level of provision, such as:

  • Maintaining adequate pupil to teacher ratios, allowing for needed interventions and the capacity to extend the curriculum to meet the needs of individual students
  • Offering the breadth and depth of curriculum it currently provides
  • Offering specialist teachers – PE, Gardening, table tennis etc 
  • Offering the quantity and quality of clubs our kids enjoy
  • Offering Breakfast Club and Fox Play for as many children as are currently accommodated, which requires extra staff
