What is the Raintree Match Funding Scheme?

The Raintree Match Funding Scheme is an award winning 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 place a £3000 order we will pay for half of that order, so it will only cost you £1500.

Who can claim Match Funding?

All Nurseries, Primary and Secondary schools in the UK and Ireland are eligible to apply.

What our customers say...

"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!"
