What is the Raintree Match Funding Scheme?

The Raintree Match Funding Scheme is an initiative that we have established, so that you can continue to help support children to develop a real love of reading and learning.

Recipients will receive a pound-for-pound match on their order, so that they can purchase additional Raintree books and resources. 

For instance, if you spend £1500 we will give you an additional £1500 to spend with us in the same order.

What our customers say...

"We are really pleased with the wide range of subject matter, age and interest levels, and style of books available. Our readers at all levels have loved the quality of the books and are so disappointed when a friend chooses a book that they have been longing to read! On top of this, the match funding has helped to stretch our ever-dwindling budget so everyone is happy! We will definitely be buying more books in the future!"
Greg Braham, Head of School Liphook Infant School, Hampshire
"I was pleasantly surprised with the available titles of this scheme, including fiction and non-fiction copies. On top of this, most books have Accelerated Reader quizzes and they have been well-used by my students."
Minh Nguyen, Learning Resource Centre Manager Whitley Academy, West Midlands
"Working in a school in a deprived area, Raintree's Match Funding Scheme has been instrumental in regenerating our heavily used library. The children have enjoyed all the books delivered, and they have brought a renewed sense of enjoyment to reading!"
Claire Moseley, Early Years Coordinator Kentmere Academy and Nursery, Lancashire
