Information on Affiliation for schools
The e-Learning Foundation is an independent charity working to help all children achieve their potential through technology. We want to see every child, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, have their own personal, portable device to support their education, when and where they want to learn.
Schools have a vital role to play, and the Foundation can offer a wide range of support services to help them succeed.
We receive no government funding and it costs us £150 on average to visit a school in order to provide advice and support. That’s why we ask schools to affiliate to the e-Learning Foundation through a small annual affiliation fee and sign up to the core values of the Foundation.

Affiliation benefits for schools
Expert advice and support
Your School Liaison Manager will help you plan, implement and maintain a successful e-learning programme. They will alert you when grants are available, and when we have access to other offers e.g. solutions for Internet access at home. They will help you think through the best approach for your school and present your case to your parents, Board of Governors and colleagues.
Use of special logo
Affiliation carries the right to use the e-Learning Affiliated School logo on school stationery, and will be sent to you on receipt of your affiliation fee.
Our Fundraising Manager will help you develop local fundraising opportunities.
Donation Management Service
The Donation Management Service takes away the administration burden of collecting regular parental donations for schools. In most cases the school pays nothing for the service, as the e-Learning Foundation uses the Gift Aid it can claim from the Inland Revenue to cover the costs. The service can collect donations by direct debit, credit and debit cards, one off cheques and cash using the PayPoint network. A web portal gives ready access to the information you need on your current and lapsed donors.
Discounted e-Learning Foundation conference rates
Affiliated schools benefit from two discounted places at each event.
Publicity for your school
Schools that address the challenge of the digital divide should be recognised for their achievements. Our PR team will ensure you are recognised for your work through case studies, nomination for awards and inclusion in media articles.
