The Renaissance Project

<p><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);">George Abbot, one of the highest performing state schools in the country, has&nbsp;launched a fundraising campaign to upgrade its arts facilities. The ‘Renaissance Project’ aims to&nbsp;create a set of inspiring, sustainable and accessible spaces to house its outstanding arts activity. The p</span><em style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);">roject will benefit young people studying ceramics, fashion, fine art, photography and textiles at the school.&nbsp;</em><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);"> </span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);"> </span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);">The school has a longstanding reputation for excellence in the arts and a firm belief in the power and value of creativity. However, it is time to upgrade the arts spaces in school to ensure that they continue to reflect the talent of the students and the passion of the staff team. By investing in creativity, the school is confident that students will reap the benefits. The arts can play a key role in developing critical thinking and problem solving as well as encouraging risk taking and creating a sense of well-being. It also helps develop social skills – and there is evidence that creativity helps develop skills in maths and science. </span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);"> </span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);"></span></p><p><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);"><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);"><span style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);">Headteacher, Mrs Kate Carriett, commented</span></span></span><em style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);">: </em></p><p><br></p><p><em style="color: rgb(68, 68, 68);">‘Our school community has truly demonstrated its creative thinking skills in planning this campaign.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
