From our Match Funding Community

"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!"
