The John Badley Foundation (JBF) offers financial support through bursaries, giving more young people a chance to benefit from the transformational opportunity a Bedales education can provide. With Christmas fast approaching, there are several ways you can support the JBF.
Swap Christmas cards for a donation this year
Instead of sending Christmas cards, please support a bursary child by donating the money you would have spent on cards to the JBF. You can download a donation and gift aid form here.

Do you know about the 1893 Club?
Members choose to donate £18.93 every month or quarter to the John Badley Foundation, to help widen opportunity at Bedales and commemorate the school’s founding year.
Through fully funded bursary places, the John Badley Foundation transforms the lives of individuals who are able to join Dunhurst and Bedales from difficult home and school situations. The Foundation currently supports ten students in this way, but we rely on the generosity of regular givers to offer more young people this transformational opportunity in the years to come.
Will you help us do this by making a regular gift today? It’s easy to set up through your online banking or by completing a standing order form. Every pound you donate will be matched by Bedales, giving a child an incredible start in life.
As a way of saying thank you, we will invite you to the annual donor reception and give you a special pin badge which qualifies you for a free drink at the Rock Show and other school events.
Please do get in touch if you have any questions about making a donation and the impact your gift can have. I would be delighted to hear from you – email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
