Hi there, I am wandering if there are any schools out there that use an online sponsorship form? And if so, how? My ds have a sponsored swim each year to raise funds for their small village school and thought of the idea of having an online form for it to be easier for distant family and friends to sponsor. I would love to hear from anyone that knows if this is possible and how I can come about organising this.

jsutgiving also charge £15 per month. I've been looking for something similar. BT giving website is free and just charges donors for a card transaction fee, but you would need a charity number, and I don't think schools register as charity?

thankyou @BucksKid @cuggles & @Chopstheduck.
You have to be a registered charity for justgiving.com and BT which you're right @Chopstheduck, schools are not, however looking more into justgiving.com I found out there is Yimby by justgiving.com where organisations however small can raise as little or as much and sounds perfect for our school. Again many thanks for the replies. @Chopstheduck let me know if you've found an alternative how you get on!
