INCOME GENERATION FOR SCHOOLS & ACADEMIES

DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?

More than 64% of schools and academies needed to make savings to balance their budget last year. Unsurprisingly, this is likely to grow significantly this year.

 

72% of school leaders say they are not confident in their school’s ability to generate enough additional income to relieve budget pressures.

 

Only 13% of schools build successful partnerships with local businesses.

 

Only 42% of schools use their buildings to generate additional income.

 

WE ARE OAKS

HOW CAN WE HELP?

We help schools and academies to think differently and generate new income from alternative sources.

In the past 12 months we have supported over 140 schools and academies to explore and successfully secure income generation opportunities in a range of areas.

WHAT DOES OUR INCOME GENERATION PLAN INVOLVE?

DELIVERED THROUGH A COMBINATION OF VIRTUAL/PHYSICAL WORKSHOPS, IN-DEPTH CONSULTATION AND DESK-BASED RESEARCH, WE WILL:

REVIEW

We will review all of your fundraising and income generation activity to-date, benchmarking it against performance elsewhere and identifying areas of potential.

IDENTIFY

We will work with you to identify and explore all of the possible income generating opportunities  available to you, from grants and corporates to fundraising and procurement.

PLAN

We will examine all of the steps required to successfully maximise each of the income opportunities, identifying the resources, skills and capacity required.

REPORT

We will articulate all of the findings in a report that indicates your total income potential, and the steps required for you to successfully diversify your  income portfolio.
